It may be an unusually cool July, but it's not too cool for cooler stuff.
I and The Teen and College Boy (I had to stop saying Teen 1 and Teen 2, as Teen 1 is no longer a Teen--these things happen) decided we needed a little ice cream in our lives this week, so off we went to Pumphouse Creamery in Minneapolis. (That's The Teen, checking out the artwork on the walls while waiting for his lemon sorbet, which he proclaimed refreshing.)
Gotta love the handwritten, easily changeable flavor signs. The Teen's lemon sorbet "screams summer", while College Boy's Chocolate Brownie boasts Equal Exchange chocolate and homemade brownies. The latter was described as delicious by said College Boy.
I opted for the Fresh Banana, which is noted to have organic, fair-trade bananas and is great with a sundae. Well, who am I to argue?
Great with a sundae, indeed. And that's no Hersheys syrup. I'd reckon it was homemade, or locally made by some fine purveyor.
Because Pumphouse likes the local food scene.
Pumphouse also, endearingly to me, likes canines.
How could I resist buying some of the doggie ice cream, knowing that proceeds go to local rescue groups? Obviously, I couldn't.
Holli the dog approves of this charitable gesture too. Almost as much as she approves of the doggie ice cream. And when Holli the dog is happy, everyone is happy.
