This is how it went down. I heard of a new ice cream shop(pe) from my friend Julie’s blog www.dinnerwithjulie.com. She mentioned a new place with interesting flavours – something out of the ordinary even for the most discerning ice cream connoisseur. Today we were planning to go to the beach near our house but naps went long and we needed to adjust our plans. So, we went out looking for plants for the garden, attempted another public pee with R (gah!), and decided to go downtown to check out the new spot. It is Stampede time here in Calgary which means that downtown is officially a shit show with people asking $40 for parking anywhere you can fit a car. We managed to find a spot and walked to the Village Ice Cream parlour. It is a tiny spot tucked away behind a set of train tracks and you have to make 4 right turns ina row to get there. It was worth the effort! Cardamom, Salted Caramel, Huckleberry, Guide’s Mint and Vanilla Bean are all amongst the flavours I sampled. I decided on cardamom and it was delish. In a freshly made, warm waffle cone no less. R had huckleberry as she requests purple ice cream wherever we go. She was in heaven. There was also a dog outside the store as we were eating which may have contributed to her blissful state. It was a good evening.
