Tom and I stopped for soft serve chocolate-vanilla swirl from Little Coney at Golden Gardens Park.
While we were waiting, I showed a man how to adjust the brightness on his cell phone camera. He marveled at the difference and shook my hand and said, “have nice dinner on me tonight!” If you know of a restaurant that accepts second-hand handshakes as payment, let me know.
Parfait in Ballard with Jenna! I had two scoops: Meyer Lemon and Lavender Caramel. Jenna had Rosemary Almond Brittle.
I sampled nearly half the menu (again, I say, ice cream flights should be a thing). Parfait uses a lot of herbs in their recipes. They grow them in the planter boxes in front of the store. Thanks for the recommendation, Jenna!
Torta Paradiso at Nutty Squirrel Gelato in Phinney.
I accidentally deleted my list of other flavors sampled. Guess I’ll have to return soon!
Avocado Lime at Fainting Goat Gelato in Wallingford. The woman ahead of me in line was buying ice cream for 6 kids. While her crew was working out the best of the 972 possible flavor combos, I made a list of flavors to sample.
I’d pay to just sample one bite of each flavor. Why is this not an option, Ice Cream People?
Anyhow, I settled on Avocado Lime because I skipped dinner and avocado is a meal, right?
A scoop of Persian Rose from Sweet Alchemy in the U District.
Made with cardamom, rose water, and pistachios. I’d never heard of this shop before and I’m so glad I came across it! The people working there were the most excited ice cream staff I’ve met yet this month.
