“Double Dip”, Day 29 of 30 Paintings in 30 Days

"Double Dip"

You can keep your sugar cone, your waffle cone and for God’s sake, your cup. I was always a fan of the flat bottom “Eat-It-All” cake cone. Yeah. It didn’t compete with the flavor of the main event, and the base of the cone held up, even on the hottest days. No drips, no leaks – just a reservoir of pure ice cream goodness to savor at the very end.

It’s the little things, you know?

I’m doing a painting each day this month. 30 paintings in 30 days. Being November, the Month of the Feast, the theme is Things We Love to Eat and Drink.

A painting a day, and yes, they’re for sale. And they’re affordable: $99, which includes free first-class shipping. You can order on my Etsy store by clicking here. Check this blog every day (or the Etsy store) to see the new painting du jour. Each one will be 5″ by 7″ on sturdy illustration board.

Tomorrow will conclude 30 Paintings in 30 Days. Will I start a new theme and do it again in December? Would it be ’31 Paintings in 31 Days,’ or would I for God’s sake take Christmas off? Stay tuned.

Thank you Michael Stern of RoadFood.com for his mention here.

    I am shocked — SHOCKED! — that John wrote a post about ice cream without giving a shout out to his absolute favorite frozen treat of all time, frozen custard at Not Licked Yet in Fish Creek, Wisc. John’s been rhapsodizing on Not Licked Yet for years, ever since he and Mike Kaufman made a stop there on one of their boys-only road trips.

    Of course, we also deeply love Cone E Island, the D.C. ice cream shop owned by our friends Alan and Susan. Visiting the Rubins is like staying with Willie Wonka, as Alan brings out a tray of multiple ice cream containers for dessert. John’s never met one he didn’t like.
