Jump Start Your Brain: Ice Cream!!!

JumpstartHappy Saturday, Modern Philosophers!

What an awesome day this has turned out to be!  It was gray and gloomy when I awakened, but now it’s sunny and breezy.  Perfect weather to be writing out on the porch of The House on the Hill.

I’ve already been on my morning run, done some errands, and gotten a little writing finished.  Clearly, I’ve jump started my brain, but I’m sure there are still some of you out there trudging around like Zombies in a thick, foggy brain funk.

Let’s get you hooked up to 1000 Volts of Deep Thoughts so that you can enjoy this beautiful Saturday, too!

Who wants ice cream?  Who thinks this is the perfect day for an ice cream sundae out on the porch?  Isn’t August meant for ice cream?  Is August National Ice Cream Month?  If it’s not, what do we need to do to make that happen?  Would you sign the petition if we started one?  Who’s up for making this official?

What’s your favorite flavor?  Are you all about the chocolate peanut butter like this toga wearing ice cream lover?  If not, what flavor most often stains your toga?

Are you lucky enough to have an old fashioned ice cream parlor near you?  Have you ever been to such an establishment?  Have you always been stuck with ice cream chains or supermarket ice cream?  If you could start your own ice cream parlor, what would you call it?  Do you ever watch the movie “Serendipity” simply so you can see the cool ice cream joint that gives the movie its name?

ice creamWhat’s your favorite ice cream concoction?  Are you just a few scoops in a bowl kind of person?  Or do you prefer to indulge and garnish your treat?  What toppings go on your sundae?  Do you add fruit?  If you could come up with your very own signature ice cream sundae, what would be in it?  What would you call it?  Are you dying to make that very treat right now?

Is there any flavor of ice cream that you won’t eat?  Have you ever had a negative ice cream experience?  How do you deal with the brain freeze brought on by eating ice cream too quickly?

Is there ice cream in your freezer right now?  If there isn’t, has this post inspired you to go out and buy some?  If you do, could you pick up a gallon of chocolate peanut butter and bring it by The House on the Hill?

Happy Saturday!  Enjoy that ice cream I know you’re going to have now!

    My favorite is Haagen Dazs Vanilla Swiss Almond. It is so, so yummy!

      Are you going to get some? I wrote that post even though there is no ice cream in the house. Now I am craving some very badly!

      • hollie says:

        No, they don’t sell it here. I rarely get it because its pretty expensive although I do ration it and end up eating it 4 times out of that little container. We will be in the town that does sell it (a half hour away) tomorrow so I might have to pick some up.

    I’m just happy with chocolate ice cream and banana….unless I want to go one step further and add some whipped cream on top;-)

    I like anything chocolate, mmmm, maybe with pecans or walnuts or peanuts…can never go wrong with caramel or Neapolitan or strawberries or banana or cookie dough…ok, I doubt I’ve ever met ice cream I didn’t like.
    I think August is unofficially Ice Cream month, even if it’s never been made official, it’s understood. 🙂

    I used to love coffee ice cream as a kid. My parents wouldn’t allow us to drink coffee but the ice cream was considered ok. I still like it, but my all-time favorite has to be chocolate chip with the shards of deep dark bitter-sweet chocolate that wake up the taste buds. 🙂

  5. Chocolate and Coconut gelato. Coffee and strawberry ice cream. All and any combinations. We all scream for ice cream daily.

  6. grannyK says:

    I like most ice cream flavors, but not strawberry unless it’s home made strawberry ice cream!

  7. There was a place called “White Cottage” that made their own ice cream. My favorite was mint chip.

    Boy, I could write a novel about the many ways to enjoy ice cream…sweet, beautiful, magical ice cream! Worst ice cream, IMHO, is Black Walnut…😣😣 Best ice cream is….well, just about anything but Black Walnut! I work out very robustly so that I might have a few glorious moments alone with my icecream. 🍦🍦🍦 You see, we’ve been seeing each other for a very long time now and it’s taking more and more ice cream to satisfy me. My once “cup” full of ice cream has grown into a full out Punch-Bowl sized serving. Before long…well, I just don’t want to entertain the thoughts of a full out apocalyptic take over, but, there it is! Ice cream is taking over the world and my resistance it down, losing the ice cream battle but going out with a chocolatey grin on my face! 🍦🍨🍦
