After a mildly annoying day at work yesterday I called my wife and said "Let's go fly kites down at the lakefront". How does this lead to me reviewing ice cream? Read on...
Since my store has an outdoor entrance and is not in a typical mall setting (Bayshore represent!) I kept standing out front of the door during slow periods and couldn't help noticing how gorgeous it was outside. You see, here in Wisconsin, you go through such a stupid winter period that you almost forget that there can be really nice weather here (for a few days anyway).
So I pick up Liz and we head down to Kite Flying Park (aka Veteran's Park) on Milwaukee's lakefront. They have huge open spaces and a sweet kite store where you can not only buy kites but snacks and stuff as well.
Just as we arrived and we pulled one of our kites from the trunk of my car (yes, we keep kites in the trunk always) the wind immediately died down. After sitting on a picninc table watching our kite sit on the grass we decided to head for ice cream at the kite store.
The ice cream was a perfect mixture of mint and cookies, with large chunks of Oreo throughout. I opted for the waffle cone which I observed is an incorrect name. A true "waffle" cone should be an Eggo waffle in cone shape filled with ice cream, these are more like a pizzelle, a traditional Italian flat cookie. Those unfamiliar with the pizzelle, I feel sorry for you. My grandmother makes these by the ton around holidays as does my mother. Since my sister is fairly useless in the kitchen I'll have to get my wife into making them to carry on this fine culinary tradition.
Gift of Wings kite shop. I will have to try the Superman flavor next time and maybe I can come up with a Batman flavor somehow....maybe Lemon Yellow ice cream with chocolate swirls and chocolate bats in it. And yes dear, I will review ice cream on my blog :-) Happy New Comic Book Day everyone!
