Bump day — May 21

Tuesday, 20 May 2008

That’s right. If you are in the family way, you are eligible for a free cone or cup of soft-serve ice cream at a participating Baskin-Robbins Ice Cream Stores in California, Chicago, NY, Nashville, and El Paso.

As an incentive, check out the forecast for tomorrow:

Long Beach, CA — 73 F
New York, NY — 65 F
Chicago, IL — 63 F
Nashville, TN — 75 F
El Paso, TX — 96 F

Jewish connection??? But of course! Today is the 31st day of the Omer so that means that Shavous is only…hang on…counting on my fingers… … … … 18 days away. And we eat dairy on Shavuos 🙂

    I love Shavuot. I haven’t really practiced Mitzvot since leaving my parents’ home, but food traditions – I do practice. 😉

    Since I prefer dairy dishes to meat anyway, Shavuot is a great time to experiment with all kinds of quiches and pastas with butter/ cheese sauces and all the good stuff that would normally be considered as a side dish.

    the funny thing–to me–about this promotion is that i thought pregnant women were advised NOT to eat soft serve ice cream! something about machines not being regularly cleaned and the higher storage temperature as breeding grounds for listeria . . . .

    bring on the mint chocolate chip instead!
