Somethings's Fishy!
I just have to draw your attention to the cute little fishies that swim at the bottom of my page. I was so excited to find them! Feel free to feed them all day long; they never tire of eating (just click around in their pond).

Red Beet and Lemon Poppyseed Ice Cream

Yeah, I thought I would catch your attention if I started with that title, but I'll get to that bit in a moment.  First of all, I wanted to thank you all for wishing me luck with the walk.  I came in ninth overall (out of around 100) and first for my age group, so I was pretty darn happy :)  It was all for raising money for the animals and I had a great time.

To celebrate, my husband and I went to Columbus, OH on Sunday and finally got to experience Jeni's Ice Cream.  Something I haven't told all you bloggers yet:  I'm a HUGE ice cream lover!!!  I've been hearing about Jeni's for awhile and knew I needed to taste it.  She has several locations, and they are all cute, but I absolutely love the one in North Market.  I adore historic food markets anyway, and this one did not disappoint. 

What about the ice cream, you ask?  UNBELIEVABLE!!
I sampled almost all of the flavors and I loved them all.  There were two that were a little too spicy (crazy, I know, to be talking about ice cream) for me to have a whole scoop, but all had amazing flavor.  She's not outrageous just to be outrageous.  Jeni really comes up with the BEST flavors that you may not get at any other ice cream parlor.  So, my favorites: definitely the red beet with lemon and poppy seed (like a wonderful dairy version of the best lemon poppy seed muffin ever, with just a hint of some sweet beet flavor - not to mention a beautiful purplish-red color!), goat cheese with roasted red cherries, and sweet corn with black raspberry (yes, you can really see fragments of corn in there!!).  Wow!  If you love ice cream, you can check out her blog here, and see what you think.
