February 23rd, 2011.  If it’s not your birthday/anniversary, then you probably didn’t think anything of the date.  But, I did.

I had been waiting for this week, this DAY, for WEEKS.  And, if you know me, I am not a very patient person.  (OK, yes, I work with kids so I have some patience, but I HATE waiting.)

So, what was so very special about this day for me?

My beloved Fritz’s is open for 2011!  It has been the LONGEST 2 months of my life.  If you read this blog, you may have noticed that all the frozen desserts I have been eating have been of ice cream form, not frozen custard (don’t mind the trip to Culver’s… that was less than a week ago).

I decided to go with a classic and one of my absolute favorites:  the Corey-O concrete.  Vanilla custard mixed with gooey caramel and crumbly Oreo cookies.  Named after one of the Fritz boys, who just so happened to be working last night also.  I love seeing family working at a family-owned business.  It just makes it so much more personal.

Oh, Fritz’s… how I have missed your perfectly sized mini concretes and your rich + creamy custard.  Perfectly mixed with just the right amount of caramel and Oreos.  In the words of Rachael Ray, YUM-O.

Matt, of course, came and actually went for one of my other favorites that’s “off menu”.  Vanilla custard with yellow cake batter and strawberries.  I know, I know.  It sounds weird, but believe me, it works!  In his own words, “it’s like a strawberry shake made from cake.”

You know if you’ve ever worked at a fast food restaurant or other food service place how you don’t want to eat that food for a really long time.  Yeah, that thankfully never happened to me with Fritz’s.  I am seriously considering going once a week this season.  And maybe challenge myself to try a NEW combination each week?  That is a challenge I might be willing to take…
