waiting our turn
at the ice cream counter

I was happy this year to celebrate my July 23 birthday with my husband, and our two oldest children, who came home specially for the occasion. We had a lovely dinner at Bamboo Sushi, and then adjourned next store to Salt & Straw for ice cream. It was our first warm and sunny evening in quite a while, and the long snaky line along the sidewalk attested both to that, and the quality of the ice cream we were soon to enjoy. We must have waited on line for at least 45 minutes, as evening began to move in over the West Hills, but it was totally worth it! I had a cone of “Grandma Malek’s Almond Brittle with Salted Ganache”, and everyone else had something different.
