Since it was Mother’s Day, I wanted to celebrate with Momma Joe the best way I know how: ice cream from the Snowman in Lansingburgh, and pizza from New York Style Pizza in Latham. Heartburn? Bring. It. On.
The Snowman, in case you are new to Troy, not familiar with the area, or have been living under a rock, has been a 5th Avenue staple since the 1950’s. It has been serving homemade, delicious, frosty treats to families for generations. I had the coffee-mocha chip loaded with chocolate sprinkles. Momma Joe had their signature orange sherbet twist. Classic.
The Snowman (clearly this photo is not from yesterday).
After that we headed up to Latham to pick up our garlic knots and Sicilian style pie loaded with spinach (trying to be healthy…ha!) and oozing with deliciously melted cheese. Momma Joe called it the best gift I ever gave her.
