Not sure why, but I have been craving an ice cream Sundae. This morning I realized that if I was in my home town of Oakland I would grab a child (someone's child, any child; to help mitigate the guilt factor) and head down to Fenton's. One black-and-tan and my craving would be gone for another year.
But I can't think of anything remotely close to Fenton's here. Yes, I suppose there is a Swenson's somewhere but I was hoping for something a little less of a chain. And I'm not looking for gelato here; I'm looking for a real sundae. The old-fashioned kind, with whipped cream, hot fudge, and a cherry on top. And I have this sinking feeling that the best options will be in family-oriented Henderson, which is a loooonnnnggg way from my home in Aliante.
Hounds? I really don't want to go to the store and buy the ingredients, because I really don't want to be tempted by leftovers. And then I would have almost an entire jar of marischino cherries staring me in the face:-)
