Summer + Shore = Ice Cream (part 1)

A La Mode is on 55th Street and is a favorite ice cream shop during our visits. The ice cream, cookies and cones are all made fresh. This shop has great sundaes like the San Francisco Special which has chocolate ice cream, hot fudge, and chocolate jimmies (sprinkles for those outside the Philadelphia area).

This is a picture of the Brown Derby which is a banana split (I thought it was on the sundae side of the menu --oops) with vanilla, chocolate, and chocolate chip mint ice cream with hot fudge, whipped cream, chocolate jimmies and a cherry --to go.

I've already decided the next visit will include the Peach Melba which has vanilla ice cream, fresh peach slices and home made melba sauce.

I need to buy a gym.

Yeah, I haven't gotten to the frozen custard yet! I've probably gained a lot more than 5 pounds. Thanks, I'm trying. :^)
