Celebrate the coming of warmth with... ice cream, of course

Now, this may come as a surprise, but the other day, it was...warm out. Yes, warm, as in, spring-- sunshine-- 70s. And since we all know the weather gods may revoke such privilege at any moment, it makes ample sense to celebrate it when we have it, no? So after dinner and a quick drink with SL, I trotted over to Holey Cream on my way home for some celebratory frozen treats.

They had both my favorite flavors from last year, so I got a small cup with half of each. Sadly, the two flavors were perched one on top of the other rather than side by side, so I had to do some Macgyvering to get alternating bites of each. The top scoop was their iconic chocolate peanut butter frozen yogurt, a low fat concoction featuring chocolate yogurt studded with chocolate chips and ample ribbons of alluringly frozen peanut butter. The bottom scoop was their berry pomegranate with granola, a vanilla frozen yogurt base with swirls of berry jam and the occasional crunchy granola cluster. Both flavors are something special, but the latter is powerfully sweet; the combination of the two helps cut the sweetness somewhat.

Their portions are impressively ample

So there ya go. Spring, ice cream, deliciousness. It's pretty simple, no?
