Finding serenity at Creole Creamery
I didn't have any dessert!
I had completely forgotten my weekly dose of decadence, but my body, obviously, had not. My mind raced through the available dessert options. Did I want a Hubig's Apple Pie? A napoleon from Brocato's? A thick chocolate malt from Camilla Grill? In the end, the dessert that won out is what usually prevails. Ice cream.
Creole Creamery, too. Maybe it was the moon?
Mostly on my own, I gobbled down a banana split with three luscious flavors of my choosing; Creole Cream Cheese, Salted Caramel and Coffee Pecan Brittle. The split also contained fresh helpings of banana (of course), strawberries, pineapple, chocolate fudge, whipped cream, bright sprinkles and three Maraschino cherries.
While slurping up the last goopy delicious spoonfuls, I watched people filing into the shop and noticed everyone had that unbalanced look, that physical mark of angst. They were not yet at peace with the world like I was. We left our booth with a smile knowing that they too, would soon find serenity.
