My neighborhood finally got a Dairy Queen, and Steve was there to celebrate the moment. He said there were 100 cars in the parking lot, and at least 20 cars in the drive-thru at all times. I guess the entire town has been craving a Dilly Bar. Unfortunately, the chocolate chip blizzard is not a menu item, and the rookies didn't know how to make it. I had prepared Steve in advance for this possibility, so he brought home my second choice Blizzard: Butterfinger. Yeah, we take our frozen desserts pretty seriously. In case you were wondering, a chocolate chip Blizzard is made by coating and partially filling the inside of the Blizzard cup with the chocolate used for the hand dipped cones. It's heavenly.
So, that was my birthday treat. I said earlier that there usually isn't much hoopla surrounding my birthday, but the dessert is something I never skip. It got me thinking about some memorable birthday cakes over the years. If this were an 80's sitcom, this is the part where you'd see wavy lines on the screen, signaling a daydream/flash back...
