MILK

Remember when you were little, and the doctor would give you a lollipop if you behaved while getting a shot? This is my grown up, treat-myself-nicely version:

A banana butterscotch ice cream bar from MILK near Beverly and La Brea. MILK specializes in homemade dairy treats, and if my treat is indicative of their quality then everything must be dreamy. I'm sure it was chock full of fat, but the bar left me feeling refreshed like I'd just eaten a cold banana with a handful of nuts. No gross filmy feeling on the tongue or heavy feeling in my stomach. The butterscotch coating was thin and crisp, unlike the thick coatings that break off in shards. MILK keeps their frozen treats at just the right temperature, which means it's easy to bite into as soon as you get it in your hands. There are also ice cream sandwiches, homemade bon bons in different flavors, sundaes, shakes, sandwiches, soups, cookies, and cakes. The bon bons are only 25 cents, and the other sweets are between $3-5. Soups are $5 and sandwiches are less of a bargain around $8, but it's going to be hard to stay away!

I thought the sign was art deco fabulous. I drove past after going to get my first Gardasil shot. If you are a woman under 26 (or even 27 or 28), definitely ask your doctor about it

What a coincidence! I got my second Gardasil shot today. :)

Gosh... this has been on list since I first saw it mentioned on the board. Almost went this Sunday after church, but we decided to hit Mitsuwa for the new Udon place instead (And I actually ended up liking the soba MUCH better). Glad you liked it! How did the baked goods look like?

And good for you on protecting yourself. Colposcopies are no fun. :(

The baked goods did look good, in a homey diner sort of way (cookies, brownies, carrot cake, blue velvet cake). But I didn't have room for more!

YAY! People are loving this post. I've had 272 hits today already, double the normal. Keep spreading the word! Maybe I can break 300 today.

I appreciate the shout out for Gardasil. You are concerned not only with my muscles and my stomache, but also with my cervix. Well done.

Pei said...

Well, if you get cervical cancer you're probably not going to be hitting the gym or scoping out restaurants, so it's really best for everyone involved if everyone who's currently eligible gets Gardasil.

Due to the success of the studies on women under 26, they've started research on giving Gardasil to women up to the age of 40, so even if you think you're too old to be affected, keep that thought on the back burner.

As a medical professional I also advocate the use of Gardasil. But as good as it is it does not prevent infection from all strains of HPV that cause cervical cancer. Routine pap smears are still necessary.

Oh my goodness we stopped by this afternoon after the LA Times article and raves from my sister. I had the coffee toffee ice cream sandwich, I don't know if any other ice cream treat anywhere else can top that. I also snuck a bite of the banana dulce de leche, I would get that if the ice cream sandwich weren't available.
