And what’s the best way to celebrate those subzero temperatures?
A nice tasty bowl of organic ice cream, of course!
Oh, quit shivering! The best time to eat ice cream is when it’s really cold. That way it doesn’t melt all over the place and make a gooey mess.
Besides, cold is all relative, right? Here in Wisconsin we go trundling out to see the Packers when the windchill is 20 below, and take those kinds of temperatures as givens.
Sort of. Maybe. Come to think of it, we don’t. We’re just used to it. Oh well, any time is a good time for ice cream, isn’t it? Besides, good ice cream is comfort food, and when it’s so cold it could freeze a bunny’s whiskers, we all need comfort food, right?
My favorite organic ice cream ever came from a small farm in western Wisconsin. Unfortunately, it’s no longer available. But Alden’s makes a mighty delicious line of organic ice cream, too, I’ve discovered. It’s yummy served plain, spooned over bananas and strawberries, or smothered in our favorite fruit topping. Slurp!
Come to think of it, now that we’ve finished the carton, I’m gonna award Alden’s a BSD Yummy Award–it’s definitely a recommended treat!
Here’s a photo I took of the top the carton, in case you want to look for it yourself.
Oh–and I can highly recommend serving a bowl of their vanilla ice cream with warm organic maple syrup drizzled over the top, too…
