Growing up, Sunday’s usually turned into a bruch-kind of day. Down-home country-style brunch — bacon and eggs or biscuits and gravy, that sort of thing. But sometimes Mom let us have ice cream for breakfast. As long as it was scooped on top of oatmeal.
Make a bowl of oatmeal, add pecans, a scoop of ice cream and drizzle a little honey on top. I think the vanilla-based ice creams work best — black walnut or butter pecan are good.
Feb. 7 is National Ice Cream for Breakfast Day. (It’s always the first Saturday of February.) Serendipity Ice Cream in Webster Groves is celebrating with waffle sundaes and pajama contests.
