Go ahead — eat ice cream for breakfast

1 Feb

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.

Cold Stone Creamery is sponsoring an ice cream social for the Make-A-Wish Foundation, which grants wishes to kids with life-threatening illnesses. In September, the ice cream chain introduced two new creations inspired by Jack and Emily, two Make-A-Wish kids. Jack’s creation is marshmallow ice cream with Oreo cookies, chocolate chips and fudge. Emily’s is Nutter Butter ice cream with white chocolate chips, Kit Kat and yellow cake. These kids know ice cream.

From 5 to 8 tonight, Cold Stone customers can get a free 3 oz. serving of Jack’s or Emily’s creation. The stores will collect donations for the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Find the Cold Stone store near you, have some ice cream and help make a wish or two come true.

If you can’t make it out for ice cream, you can still donate to the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
