Ice cream for breakfast!

Today we went to Molly Moon's Ice Cream Shop to have ice cream and oatmeal for breakfast. This festive tradition started last winter and we like to go at least once during the season. On fall and winter weekend mornings, Molly Moon's serves freshly made steel-cut oatmeal with the ice cream of your choice and toppings such as frozen berries, chopped nuts and chocolate, maple syrup, brown sugar, spices, etc. Coffee and orange juice were included.

Being kosher-keeping Jews, we didn't choose the maple bacon flavored ice cream. Instead I had salted caramel ice cream and Rik selected half maple walnut and half cardamom.

This is such a delicious way to start the day! It reminded me of International Ice Cream for Breakfast Day, which friends introduced to us last winter. Family created, the tradition is to:
1) eat ice cream
2) for breakfast
3) on the first Saturday in February.

We hope to be among the many people worldwide celebrating this tradition in 2010.
