Happy National Ice Cream Day!


HAPPY  NATIONAL ICE CREAM DAY!  It's a wonderful day where we all have absolutely NO EXCUSE but to drop everything and go get some ice cream.  Unfortunately, the Ice Creaming was out of her home digs and thus very, very far away from all of those wonderful ice cream places in NYC I still have to go see.  So in honor of National Ice Cream Day (NICD), I'm breaking the rules and doing a little "guest blogging" of sorts, telling you about some awesome ice cream I got today at the beautiful Lake Winnipesaukee, NH.

I mean, come on, right?!?  How can you not just - excuse the pun - melt at this picture??  Double scoop wafer cone, lakeside, gorgeous view, $3.  This ice cream is courtesy of a little restaurant called Town Docks, who sell their homemade ice cream from this adorable stand:

in flavors such as Dinosaur Crunch (blue-tinted vanilla ice cream with sprinkles!), Unbaked (Cake flavor with cookie dough pieces) and the one I got, White Mt. Raspberry Truffle, a vanilla with raspberry swirls and white chocolate chips.  Makes it 100% worth leaving the oppressive heat of New York City for.
