Covered with butter cream and topped with juicy, sweet raspberries.
And yes, it was just as amazing as it sounds. So amazing, that I may or may not have gone back for seconds!
Since it is the last day of the month, I have something special to share with you…my March Foodie Penpal package of goodies!
Never heard of the Foodie Penpals? Started by Lindsay over at The Lean Green Bean, the program pairs bloggers and readers alike every month to send each other packages filled with fun foodie products. This was my first time participating in the program and I can’t wait to be part of it next month!
This month, I received a package from Brianne over at Cupcakes and Kale Chips (<- be sure to check out her awesome blog!). As a New Jersey native, Brianne wanted to send me a variety of local products that represented where she was from. I loved the idea!
In my package I received a jar of Mia Cucina Marinara Sauce
After our meeting, we went around the corner to grab lunch at the pizza shop that our wedding caterer/baker owns.
My mom split a the Mixed Baby Greens Salad,was topped with carrots, tomatoes and goat cheese with a Raspberry Vinaigrette on the side.
And the Turkey Pesto Melt which included oven roasted turkey , pesto aioli, arugula and provolone cheese on a warm baguette.
Dinner was oven broiled fish with roasted carrots
It was so worth the wait!
Fenton’s is famous for their amazing, over the top ice cream creations. They had so many tasty sounding combinations, but our choice was easy.
We went for the Sundae of the Month.
You know that run I had to force myself to go on earlier in the day…I was so glad that I got in those 7 miles!
When the waitress brought the delicious monstrosity to our table, we both said “Oh my Gosh!” in unison.
Ice cream sundae the size of my head? Don’t mind if I do!
We left nothing behind.
Ohhhh, I was so right! I was love at first bite.
And, there were no dishes to clean up. How much better could it get?
As a reward for all the hard studying we have been doing, my friend and I met for our favorite dessert! Before I tell you about this special treat, I have to give you a little background information. The university I attend in Northern California is kinda in the middle of nowhere…it is often referred to as “Cow Town”. Along with our somewhat secluded location and our university’s reputation for being a big agricultural school, we are known for our cows. Yes…our cows. There are pictures and statues of them everywhere! Yeah….we are really cool, I know.
Including a mesmerizing case of cupcakes!
I think this is what heaven looks like.
Two freshly baked cookies of your choice with ice cream sandwiched in between. My choice tonight was one White Chocolate Macadamia Nut cookie and one Double Chocolate Chip cookie and Salted Carmel ice cream. The ice cream was all nice and melt-y when I got it, so a spoon was necessary. It was a glorious mess.
My friend and I have been obsessed with these things since we discovered them our freshman year, and I couldn’t graduate without having one last goodbye Cow Pie.
My heart is happy. I will miss you!
