Who says it's just for summer?!

Today's Soups:
Potato Soup au Gratin (vegetarian)
Creamy Tomato Basil Soup (vegetarian)
Roasted Garlic Red Pepper ABC Soup (vegan)

We also have Pumpkin Cranberry Scones with Walnuts.

I'm running away for a three day weekend in Cape May and started celebrating early by having Moorenko's Red Hot Chocolate Ice Cream for breakfast. It's a locally produced ice cream that is available at Eddies Market in Charles Village. Chocolate ice cream with bittersweet chocolate chunks, hot pepper flakes and cayenne make a tasty, tasty treat. During blueberry season Michael got a pint of their blueberry ice cream made with wild blueberries and it was delicious. They also make sorbets and I am dying to try the Grapefruit Campari.

Some of the other stand-out flavors are Gianduia - chocolate hazelnut; Cherries with the Works - Bordeaux cherries, semi-sweet chocolate flakes, toasted pignolis; Banana; Cotton Candy Gummy Bear; Pistachio White Chocolate; Megajolt - coffee ice cream, made with Italian ingredients and semi-sweet chocolate flakes. Richer, deeper and smoother than regular old coffee ice cream; Lemon Custard; Dried Plum Armagnac; Fresh Ginger; and Lavendar.

If you happen to be in Silver Spring you can stop by their retail location at 8030 Georgia Avenue or buy at pint at Eddies and enjoy it in your pajamas.
