It's International Ice Cream for Breakfast Day.
History here.
1) eat ice cream
2) for breakfast
3) on the first Saturday in February.

I've got my espresso chip and my whipped cream. Perhaps adding a banana. Are you ready?
This from an earlier year. Dig in. You can work it off later with some vigorous seed stitch.
I know Ellen and Natalie are prepared. Seriously, gelato con brioche? what a concept!

While reading my blogs this morning, I'm slurping down some chocolate chip ice-cream with cornflakes sprinkled on top. A lovely idea. Thanks so much for the suggestion.

btw, a gentle correction...woolanthropy is "Natalie", not Shelley.

Too late. I already had cake for breakfast.

We are about to embark on our morning ice cream odyssey. This is the best morning.

Sadly, I have no ice cream. Breakfast will be leftover pasta from last night.

Crap! I knew I should've done my blog reading BEFORE breakfast. I had oatmeal with honey and bananas...and while I love it, I would have loved an excuse to have yummy chocolate soy ice cream for breakfast instead.

Got this post too late for breakfast. I'll just have to celebrate tomorrow! Great shot of the ice cream shop in Mystic - one of my favorites!

Aw maaan - i missed it. I'd better put it on my calendar for next year. I ate so much when we went out last night that I am only now starting to feel hungry. There was a dessert platter involved, that's all I'll say.

I wish I'd known! I would have joined in!

Flashbacks! Man you are making me homesick. I was good friends with the gentleman who owned that ice cream shop. i worked directly across the street at the natural foods market Puritan & Genesta (as well as at the museum) No ice cream here, waiting for the internet man to come out...if he actually does. I grabbed a slice of cold pizza while running out the door to work this morning. Thanks for posting the pics you have been, seriously making me miss home though! (well, it was home for 7 years, I met hubby there)
