… frost

(warning. . . this post might cause cravings. . . )



'Frost' . . . the place I most want to visit in the summer. . . (even more that Starbucks! - now that says a lot!)

What is 'Frost'?

'Frost' is a local gelato shop. (Gelato is an Italian ice cream.) I was introduced to it by one of my students a few years ago when I was teaching & advising a yearbook class. We would go out to celebrate meeting print deadlines & usually they wanted to go to 'Cold Stone Creamery'. . . that is until one of them went to 'Frost'.

Oh my. Seriously wonderful. It is all made on the premises, & the flavors are intense & rich - so a little really fills you up. And, the presentation of the flavors is stunning. . . lookie. . . !



Each of the flavors has what it is made of on the top & as they scoop your portion out - the goodies get scooped out too, & you get little bites of freshness all through your cup.

Me. . . I'm hooked on the chocolate (big surprise!). It is so rich that a small cup is as filling as a pint of regular ice cream. (Not that I know what it's like to eat a whole pint of ice cream . . . !)
And the bonus on top of all this wonderfulness - is that it's only 132 calories (& only 3-8% butterfat).

Today Dad & I went out to have lunch & then to 'Frost'. . . when we got to the place where we usually stop (Paradise Bakery) - we both decided that neither of us was hungry enough to have both a salad or sandwich & a gelato. . .

So, yep . . . you guessed it . . .

We headed for 'Frost' . . .



. . . with no regrets!


(Seems like my mind was obviously focused on something else (like diving into my gelato!) . . . & I didn't get a photo of my yummy "lunch" for a 'before' shot. . . but in all reality - it rarely doesn't have a few bites already taken - even before we sit down!)

So - I'm thinking this was a perfect way to start off the 4th of July weekend celebration . . . ! Hope your weekend is filled with all kinds of wonderfulness too!

xo, Bren

Ahhhhhhhhhh, thank you! Now I know how I can cope with the 105-in the shade (no lie, that's what they just said on the news!) heat here. I going to amble over to our local shop and partake. This afternoon even pressing seams on the quilt top I'm finishing was just too hot! Gelato here I come.

Wow -- this looks like a very cool place. Is it a chain? We have a Coldstone, but I've never heard of Frost! Happy 4th of July to you!

I would have done the same thing. Speaking of Paradise Bakery...I drove 2 1/2 hours to Scottsdale Fashion Square for my favorite lunch spot only to find them closed for a re-do. On this 4th I am remembering why I am enjoying this day!

Hi I always say "eat the sweet stuff first" life is short!!!! Just found you through Bunny Hill--I love Cosmos thread and I have gotten rid of all my "other" emb thread except for the colors I started some BOM's with--but all new projects are being done with Cosmos!!! Have a great weekend I will be back to visit--hugs, just, Di

I wish we had something like that around here- looks really scrumptious and not too bad for you either!
PS I will admit that I DO know what it's like to eat a pint of chocolate ice cream...
