Around here... or a few hours away ;)

THE SKINNY DIP >> lansing, IA
7mi from the farm we stayed at during our girls weekend is this great little ice cream place. Just a small town dive in a rural area along the mighty Mississippi, but their waffle cones are amazing. Of the handful of flavors they had this month, I tried "Eskimo Kisses", vanilla ice cream with coconut and dark chocolate, and "Maple Butter Blondie", maple flavored ice cream with rich and chewy bits in it.

DAIRY WAY >> black river falls, WI
Our dinner options on the drive back home were McDonalds or Dairy Way. Some people would have hesitations about a side-of-the-road ice cream and burger joint but not us. We used to live in a tiny little town and I remember stopping at the "Dairy Bar" was a really special treat. The service here was personal, the food was delicious and the experience was loaded with nostalgia for we girls. I have no doubt we will stop there again whenever we pass through.
