Remember my post from earlier today about the cute cafe opening in my North Portland neighborhood and the owners are blogging about it? First of all, props to all of you who went over there and commented: my readers totally rock. Second, please take note that while I posted that at 10am, at 6:30pm on the very same day, the incredibly sweet owners came to my house and personally delivered the most delicious ice cream ever. To us. In person. Here they are:
I know. They're cute, aren't they? And the ice cream, you ask? Creamy chocolate aztec ice cream, just the perfect depth of chocolateness, followed by a kick-ass kick of pepper on the back of your palette. Spicy chocolate. Check out the beauty:
And delivered just in time for a little dinner party with friends.
The menu? Creamy homemade pesto on locally made noodles from last night's Farmers Market (note to all of you in North Portland: the pasta you can buy at Wednesday's Interstate Farmer's Market is awesome), parmesan popovers and caprese salad with black basil (from the garden).
Followed, of course, by Chocolate Aztec ice cream. Ali and Evan, thank you. I'll tell everyone about you and for any of my blogging friends who want to get together at the Little Red Bike Cafe for an ice cream party once they're open, let's do it.
