The Comfy Cow welcomes Christmas in July offerings and Foodie Flavor Mondays

It’s time to coat that layer of barbecue ribs in your stomach with some ice cream.

There’s a lot going on at The Comfy Cow ice cream shop, according to the business’ friendly email reminders.

First, The Comfy Cow is celebrating this month with two Christmas in July flavors, Ginger Two Snaps and Peppermint Stick.

And the shop has introduced a weekly Foodie Flavor, a one-batch culinary creation that will appear on Mondays. Yesterday, The Comfy Cow churned out goat cheese ice cream with a swirl of strawberry balsamic basil reductions. I could definitely get into the idea of having some fun, new ice cream flavors.

I’ve already been pleased as punch with The Comfy Cow’s Slugger Field offerings. Looks like I’ll have to make my way out to Westport Village this month to get in on some special creations.

Get an ice cream cone for 25 cents Saturday at Homemade Ice Cream and Pie Kitchen

Got a quarter and some free time this weekend?

Swing on down to one of nine Homemade Ice Cream and Pie Kitchen locations for Quarter Day this Saturday, June 18. From noon to 5 p.m., customers can get a one-scoop ice cream cone for 25 cents.


The dessert shop has 32 flavors of ice cream from which to choose, so I would study up before you go to avoid being “that guy” (or gal) holding up the line with indecision. I’ve narrowed my selections to either butter pecan or strawberry shortcake. Or I might go crazy and spend an extra 25 cents for two cones. You only live once, amirite?

Click here to find your nearest Pie Kitchen. And if you see me munching on the melty end of a sugar cone, don’t be afraid to say hi.

Mark your calendars: Frozen yogurt shop’s Sept. 29 opening will benefit Kosair Charities

I love fundraisers disguised as food events. They combine two of my passions – charity and good eats.

One such occasion will take place this week at 32°, A Yogurt Bar, a frozen yogurt shop that will host its Louisville grand opening from 5 – 9 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 29, at The Summit.

Guests at the celebration can help themselves to a cup of all-you-care-to-eat frozen yogurt and toppings for a $5 donation. 32° will give all proceeds from the event to Kosair Children’s Hospital, according to a news release from the company.

This is 32°’s first location outside of Alabama, where the chain began. The yogurt bar is located between Starbucks and AT&T in The Summit. The Louisville shop will offer 14 daily flavors, which include gluten-free and kosher selections, and more than 50 toppings. The Summit is a bit of a journey from my hood, but some fro-yo sure is tempting.
