  It's National Ice Cream Day and so never let it be said that I am not patriotic.  I am all about celebrating National Holidays and I certainly am not going to let this honey of a day go uncelebrated. I just got back from the Five Penny Creamery on Park Avenue in Rockville Centre.  They make their own ice cream and I might add they do it well.  I always feel that the true test of an ice cream store is their vanilla.  It is just pure ice cream no bells no whistles.  The Five Penny Creamery makes an outrageous vanilla. I am as I type, sitting at my desk enjoying vanilla ice cream with hot fudge.  Be still my heart. Happy National Ice Cream Day.
