Ice Cream for breakfast

Yes, you read that correctly, ice cream for breakfast. And I’m not talking the eat-it-straight-out-a-carton-because-there’s-nothing-else-to-eat kind of ice cream for breakfast.

I’m talking the Molly Moon’s way of ice cream for breakfast. Molly Moon’s is this fabulous homemade ice cream shop in Wallingford and Capitol Hill. Every winter they offer their sweet treat on top of steaming bowl of steel-cut oatmeal. You can have any scoop of ice cream they offer: balsamic vinegar & strawberry, maple bacon, or my personal favorite salted caramel.

(note the chocolate chunks in my dish)

Once you get your bowl of oatmeal and ice cream, you can help yourself to their toppings bar: chunks of chocolate (not sprinkles or shavings, I mean chunks of chocolate), cinnamon, brown sugar, raisins and all sorts of nuts.

The best thing about this treat (well, one of the best because really there are so many ways this is delightful) is that there are often time no lines for their breakfast special. As anyone has driven, walked or bussed by a Molly Moon’s location on the weekends or evenings, there’s always a line down the block. This isn’t your normal ice cream people.

Their winter breakfast special runs through March. Now you don’t need to wait for summertime to have some ice cream. And plus, with the oatmeal, it’s really a health breakfast. Ok, that may be a stretch, but breakfast is the most important meal of the day.

I was almost licking my computer screen!!!!! Now that is my kind of oatmeal. YUMMY YUMMY YUMMY!!!!!!! I am really sad that I am not able to have some myself, but at least someone I love got some. Diya is going to debut your adorable knitted dress tomorrow so watch the blog for a fashion post!!!

Shame on that spammer for hijacking a perfectly wonderful post (especailly a spam all about viral infections!)

What?!?! Is that for real???? OMG. I WANT THAT. That looks incredible. And the ice cream flavors? WOW. Aside from the horrific-sounding maple bacon, of course. ;-) I bet I'd be a salted caramel fan too.
