Tomorrow, the first Saturday in February, is International Ice Cream for Breakfast Day. Created by a American Jewish family many years ago, it's celebrated widely around the world. At our house there will be hot oatmeal, vanilla ice cream, chopped chocolate, nuts, and fruit (maple syrup for the Canadian). What a great way to start the day!
The people at Molly Moon, my favorite local ice cream place, really pay attention when their customers talk. We have been for the weekend ice cream for breakfast twice this winter and both times mentioned Ice Cream for Breakfast Day. After our last visit, the owner posted on her blog about their version, with total proceeds from Saturday's sales benefiting Haiti health care and relief support non-profit, Partners in Health. Way to go Molly Moon's -- doing good and serving a crucial need in the ice cream world at the same time!
