Friday I'm in Love!

Happy Friday, y'all!  I'm so happy to have made it through the first week back at school.  It went by in the blink of an eye, which tells me summer's gonna be here before I know it!  

Today I'm in love with:

1) This picture
Freeman and his mama in Colorado over Christmas
right before they got in the hot tub

Seriously!  Would you look at that mini bathrobe and the look on my little buddy's face?  Dying over here.  Lucky for me, he's my Saturday & Sunday companion this weekend.

2) Scream Sorbet

Previously only available at the farmers market, there is now a Scream Sorbet storefront in my neighborhood (trouble on the horizon).  Now, I am a pretty serious connoisseur of all things ice cream/frozen yogurt/sorbet/etc. . . so take me seriously when I say that this stuff is the best I've ever had (Move over, Bi-Rite!  Move over, Yogurtland!)  Click here for a list of flavors (but be prepared to hop on a plane and head to the Bay Area, cause you'll want to as soon as you see the likes of caramel cashew or meyer lemon or peanut brittle).  

Eric & I walked up to Temescal the other day for lunch, and I squealed when I saw the new Scream right next to Bake Sale Betty's (another neighborhood legend--Mayra, have you had their fried chicken sandwich?).  I hurried through lunch and pretty much skipped up the street as soon as we were done.  We got the peppermint chocolate sorbet sandwich, which was delicious, but not as delicious as my two current favorites: cashew caramel and pistachio.  It's crazy--the ingredients for cashew caramel are literally "cashews, sugar, sea salt, water" or something like that.  Vegan and organic and all ingredients from local farmers markets . . . and yet the creamiest, most delicious frozen stuff I've ever tasted.

Who wants to go tonight?!

Mmmm! You have me dying to try that sorbet! I am lucky to live two blocks away from the best ice-cream spot in our town. We have a huckleberry flavor that will knock your socks off. :) Have a great Weekend!
