Rural Upstate NY
Late this afternoon I got a great idea for a food photograph that I want to work on in the morning. It requires ice-cream, so I decided to go to Stewarts tonight...
I figured out that I also needed eggs and milk, not for the photo, but just because....
As I was driving down the hill, I noticed a sign for eggs at the farm stand. I turned around. I wondered if there were any eggs at the stand so late in the afternoon when I noticed the mini-fridge. Sure enough, there was one dozen eggs left along with some cans of soda and water and a money can. Payment by the honor system.
I continued down to Stewarts. When I asked for a hand-packed pint of my favorite ice-cream, they said they were OUT!! Working really hard not to hyperventilate, I asked if they could call the store on Rt 5S to see if they had any--I wanted to drive over there but not if they didn't have it. They had no clue which store I was talking about--go figure. I decided to drive there and take a chance.
So, in addition to the 5 miles I drove to the first store, I drove 10 more to the second store and then about 12 more to get home. It was a very expensive and time consuming pint of ice-cream, to be sure.
But I have to tell you, it was worth it.
Whoever came up with this flavor is brilliant. Kudos to him/her.
