Now, I appreciate Skinny Cow, Edy’s Slow Churned and other light ice cream varieties for their spectacular creations that taste indulgent (enough) without wrecking a day’s worth of healthy eats. But every year, I look forward to going to Oink’s, which is, legitimately, the best ice cream shop in the world.
The entire place is pig-themed, from the parking spots:
I’m pretty sure my life would be a little better with a piggy weathervane.
The ceiling is lined with hundreds of different ice cream scoopers.
When I was younger, Chocomania used to be my favorite (the deepest chocolate ice cream you can imagine), but now I have to get Chocolate Peanut Butter. This is a Kids scoop, but it’s still pretty big!
Crudités and Margaritas with mango-flavored salt:
Bloody Marys on the beach:
My dad was cooking crew leader the other night, and prepared a delicious meal: corn + tomato scramble, sesame cabbage, and salmon.
He also made one of the best desserts I’ve had:

I’ll be back later with some fabulous Southern recipes. In the mean time, my fingers are crossed that the skies will clear and we can get down to the beach! Have a fabulous Wednesday 🙂
