Thanksgiving Day Dessert Push.

Some people have stress dreams about work. When I get stressed, like when Thanksgiving rolls around and I have to make 85 pies in two days, this is what I dream about...


Poor me, right?

In any event, I realize it's gotten wicked cold on us all of a sudden, and the ten degree windchill doesn't exactly put everyone in the mood for a tasty frozen dessert, but that doesn't mean you don't still need a fine dessert to finish off that giant Thanksgiving dinner you've got coming up in a few days.

In case grandma's apple pie isn't enough variety for your table (don't forget the handpacked homemade vanilla ice cream ;), might I suggest a few ideas...

Pumpkin Pie Ice Cream Pies.

This morning, I 'installed' this year's version of the Wing Travel sign. Man, was that a cold project. My landlord demoted me to the 'heading toward Northampton' side of the sign this year, which I hope doesn't cut into this year's pie orders. Alas, but beggars can't be choosers. That sign sells, and hopefully the other side will too.

If pumpkin pie ice cream isn't your thing, how about a cashew turtle pie (see mouthwatering photo above)? Deer trax? Strawberry cheesecake? Skybar?

Did I mention the cool new flavors we've got right now? How about Gingerbread ice cream? Gingerbread base with gingersnap cookies and a caramel swirl, mmm.

As always, you can see the specials we've got going at any time HERE

Mocha chip makes a return this week after a long absence on account of a key ingredient that was on backorder since June.

I'm even planning to try my hand at a batch of basil ice cream tomorrow (Sunday)... Stop by to see how that one turns out. Curious?

I just picked up some other interesting flavor samples too. How does Boysenberry ice cream sound? Buttermint? Not even sure what that one is yet. How about a cup of cosmopolitan sorbet? So many flavors, so little time... Actually, I do have time now, or at least I will after the Turkey day prep week.

Come help me finish off some of the current specials to make room for a few new creations!

Ok, I'll end my holiday sales pitch now. Thanks for indulging me on my indulgences.


If you don't see me here until after the turkey and cranberry is passed around, Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.
