Today is free scoop day at Ben & Jerry's. This is the most important day of the year. It's like Christmas, St Patricks, New Year's, Umstead 100, Vermont 100 and Easter all wrapped up and scooped into one day! (well except for election day last year when we scored a free scoop of ice cream, a Krispy Kreme Donut, and Starbucks Coffee)
Of course Tristan and I partook in free scoop day.
Here, I am waiting on line. The line was not too bad. I assume somewhat is because we arrived at 5 p.m. and because the weather was a little iffy.
Here I am imitating the Ben & Jerry's cow licking its lips (or sticking it's tongue up it's nose!). Tristan's comment while taking this picture was "You look like a cow!" I am not sure this is an appropriate phrase to udder to one's wife (particularly if you want to live through the day).
With our freebie cone. Life is good. In less than one month I will be at the Mothership in Stowe, Vermont during the Vermont City Marathon in May. I stupidly have not been training for eating a Vermonster (29 scoops of frozen yogurt, 5 cups of liquid toppings, 4 cups of dry toppings, and 1 cannister of whipped cream). Well, I still have time to train for my trip to VT in July for the VT100 miler!
In Rockville Town Center near the Ben & Jerry's there is also a Fractured Prune, a really good donut shop. They make hot donuts and you get to choose the toppings. Ice Cream and Donuts in the same block...clearly I've died and gone to heaven!
For dinner, Tristan and I had California Tortilla, which is a cute restaurant. They have many sauces to spice up tortilla's and burrito's. These sauce titles are classic!
