Flavor of the day-Mindful Monday.

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Local Flavor.”

choc cherryIn Milwaukee Wisconsin there is one local flavor that has in its own right become a Milwaukee local flavor of the day. It is the most unusual daily experience of its kind that attracts hundreds of people through our fine city. There is no seasonality to this experience even on frigid days of our frozen, snowy winter tundra.

What is this 1950’s born local flavor?

It’s Milwaukee’s own Kopp’s Custard. What makes this so popular is its exotic, classic, rich and creamy flavor of the day. This homemade egg custard filled with many chunky flavors and comes directly from the custard machine onto your cone.

The flavor of the day tantalizes your existence. On Milwaukee;s major freeway you can watch the billboard sign change daily touting what today’s flavor will bring. It could be traditional flavors like red raspberry, carmel cashew, german chocolate cake, butter pecan or rocky road. The flavor could also be more exotic like Sprecher root beer, cherry amaretto cheesecake or grasshopper fudge.

I am second. I will share my experiences, as a child of God, husband to Daniel, father, best friend, brother, son, leader, professor, writer and photographer. My intention for this blog is to be random, with no plan, no list, no direction and no expectations. Very different from how I lived my past life. My journey has been blessed by the mercy and grace of God and unwavering love. I hope you enjoy reading and sharing my experiences of hurts, laughter, discovery, friendships, Christ, and my family. Temenos is a safe circle where you can be yourself with peace of mind. Temenos originates from a Greek word which refers to a universal instinct to create a protected, safe space in which to heal, restore and regenerate yourself. My temenos circle is a place to be still and seek Jesus. It becomes my place to pray, reflect in the word of our Lord to shrink, grow in him, and heal my soul. What is your temenos circle?
