Ice cream sandwiches supporting kids?? HECKYEAH!

You had me at blue monster cookie dough ice cream!ย  Seriously!ย  And eating ice cream to support playground replacement at a local school, weโ€™re ALL in!

 

Lacombe Christian School is on the receiving end of funds from our most recent ice cream sandwich the โ€œRainbow Monsterโ€.ย  Our School Ice Cream Sandwich Program sees our culinary teams at both of our restaurant locations dream up an ice cream sandwich with some punch every 3 months, and we select a local school to benefit from ice cream sandwich sales, kicking back $1 of every sandwich we sell in house to a program or project of the schoolโ€™s choice.

 

From September to November the โ€œRainbow Monsterโ€ ice cream sandwich was served up at our Lacombe location.ย  It included two fresh baked monster cookies with blue monster cookie dough ice cream, rainbow sprinkles, and candy glitter! $1 from every ice cream sandwich sold will go towards plans to update the schools ageing west campus playground.

Our team was thrilled to work alongside students at the school in October for an on-site ice cream sandwich sale!ย  Students held each other to task and their work ethic coupled with their positive attitude helped us serve up more than 450 ice cream treats, raising some additional funds for the school.ย  A BIG thank-you to school staff and families who supported those efforts!

 

Today, (January 20th) we were thrilled to hand over a cheque to Lacombe Christian School for $2068 which included $1824 raised from the on-site sale (weโ€™re happy to kick back FULL proceeds from that pre-order fundraiser)!

 

Our current Ice Cream Sandwich at our Lacombe location is the โ€œBlack Forestโ€.ย  It includes two chocolate covered house-baked shortbread cookies, dark cherry ice cream, whipped cream, cherry coulis, and chocolate shavings.ย  $1 from every ice cream sandwich sold is going to Alix-MAC School in Alix for school technology!

We were honoured to attend a prayer service at Lacombe Christian School today, where we handed over School Ice Cream Sandwich proceeds to the Student Council leaders who helped serve them up to their peers!ย  Between the in-school ice cream sandwich fundraiser and those we served up at our Lacombe restaurant location we were thrilled to turn over a total of $2068 dollars to go towards plans for a new playground!

Results from our December Red Deer Burger of the Month!

โ€œA band is not proud because it performs well; it preforms well because it is proud.โ€ โ€“ George Parks.

That sentiment holds true as there was plenty to march on about in December with the โ€œRoyal Breakfast Burgerโ€ at our Red Deer location in support of the Red Deer Royals!

Local Guest Chef Chris Windrim provided the inspiration for the burger which included two Alberta Beef smash patties, melted Swiss cheese, seared shaved ham, house-made bacon jam and smoky ketchup with a sunny fried egg and tomato skewer on a garlic buttered brioche bun.ย  $2 from every burger sold is going directly to Chrisโ€™s organization of choice, the Red Deer Royals Marching Band!

For Chris he was keen to give back to an organization that gave him so much while growing up in Red Deer โ€œitโ€™s where my passion for community was ignited since all members are ambassadors for our city and carry the torch around the world.ย  Itโ€™s where I discovered how lucky we are to be Canadian and that even I can make a difference.ย  Itโ€™s where I met my wife and many lifelong friends.ย  Iโ€™m giving back to them so the next generation can hopefully have the same opportunity that I didโ€.

The Red Deer Royalsโ€™ roots in Red Deer date back to 1902, more formally as an organization in 1968.ย  The mission of the Red Deer Royals Concert and Marching Show Band is to facilitate an environment of musicianship, learning, friendship and mentoring for musicians and colour guard ages 12-21of Central Alberta and surrounding communities.ย  The band promotes musicianship, leadership, teamwork, community service and pride.ย  The Royals will use thisย donation to help the band fund members through their Adopt-a-Royal fund.ย  ย  Their current 80 members are looking forward to sharing their music this summer as they travel to Nova Scotia and Princeย Edward Island!

Thanks to your support of our beloved Burger of the Month Program Chris helped us hand over $1046 to the Red Deer Royals last night (Wednesday, January 18th).ย  Thanks to the amazing support we see from our guestโ€™s month after month, we have had the opportunity to give back over $120,000 to local charities over the past 71 months!ย  THANK-YOU!

 

The January Burger of the Month in Red Deer is the โ€œMeat Mountainโ€, created in collaboration with local Guest Chef Benjamin Bodmer!ย  It includes two Alberta Beef smash patties, Monterey jack cheese, house slow roasted chipotle BBQ pulled pork, two strips of peppered bacon, topped with house slaw, served on a garlic buttered brioche bun.ย  $2 from every burger sold goes directly to Benโ€™s charity of choice, the Canadian Cancer Society!

Brown Ale
Blind Enthusiasm Brewing Company
Edmonton, AB
8.7% ABV
ย 
Occasionally a beer names itself, and this was the case with Smooth Operator. As a big, brown ale aged in Port barrels for 24 months, we were a little surprised how easy-drinking it was, even though it clocks in at 8.7% ABV.
ย 
The very first suggested name, Smooth Operator, was unanimously approved. This recipe uses a wide range of dark malts which play nicely off the red fruit and tannin from the Port barrels. The final beer is a delightful amalgam of red wine, chocolate, and cola notes with a clean, dry finish.
ย 
Hope you love this beer!
ย 
THANK YOU so much for being a part of our 3rd annual Craft Beer Advent Calendar! HAPPY HOLIDAYS to you!
