Travels with Greg: Yum Yum in Chiefland Florida

For Greg this week has been fun. Since Sunday my family and I have been enjoying spring break in Cedar Key. We've watched Dolphins, caught two fishes (Jane's first), and just relaxed. One of the high points of Cedar Key is the visit to my friends Peggy and Don's shop just off Cedar Key in Chiefland Florida called "Yum Yum's ice cream shoppe." It's a fun family run shop where Don runs a Do-Jo in a building behind the ice cream shop. They have three sizes of everything. The Yum, The Yum Yum and the Yum Yum Yum.
Very nice folks. They post photos of their customers on their walls, they cover them like tiles. If you go by, try and find the photo of my daughter Jane. It's fun, like playing "Where's Waldo" with photos.

Friday Zen: Ice cream hangover cure

To celebrate the day after St. Patrick's day I bring you this:
One of the quickest ways of curing a hangover is to make a banana milkshake, sweetened with honey. The banana calms the stomach and, with the help of the honey, builds up depleted blood sugar levels, while the milk soothes and re-hydrates your system.
1 banana
2 scoops of ice cream
2 cups milk
2 tbsp. honey
Peel banana, put in blender add honey, milk and ice cream blend until frothy. Pour into glasses, and drink at once.
And yes, we have all the ingredients for one of these at Lofty Pursuits.

The Cart is done

I thought you'd like to see the final results of today's work. The only thing left to do is to plumb in the sink for the ice cream dippers. That will be done first thing tomorrow when the seal for the drain drys.

Portable Soda Fountain Update 2

Well we're a lot further along with the portable soda fountain. Monday, we got the cooling system working, and the ice cream stayed at temperature for 8 to 9 hours just fine. Today we got the seltzer head working and the rootbeer head. We also got the umbrella mount in. I think it's looking good. Tomorrow I make the counter top, and I hope have time to paint it. Friday it has it's maiden voyage. The Wine Festival fundraiser for the Mary Brogen museum. I hope to serve Nano Cones, Egg Creams, Root Beer floats, and possibly Ice Cream Sodas.
