No, not Xmas time. It's Alli visits Lena in NYC time!!! Every August my sister comes to New York to shop (I mean visit me) and we always have a really good time (see us eat knishes! Or cook eggplant!). Sometimes we try on matching dresses.
And sometimes, we eat ice cream.
The Big Gay Ice Cream Truck is a legendary New York City truck. It travels around the city serving crazy cones like the Bea Arthur or the Salty Pimp. It's not very old, but I've read about it several times this year and this seemed like a great time to try it out.
We both ordered the Salty Pimp - vanilla soft serve with dulce de leche and sea salt, dipped in chocolate.
Holy Moley, it was good. There is almost nothing I love more than sweets with salt. The caramel sauce mixed with the chocolate and salty goodness? I'd eat this every day. But then I'd get fat, so I'll just stick with sometimes. Here it is all eaten down.
And then Alli got some awesome new glasses and ate ice cream and all was right with the world.
