Hydrangea Love, Sundae School Ice Cream, & Gluten-Free Seafood

One thing I love about the cape is its sandy soil. Such soil is conducive to the growth of my favorite flowers, the hydrangea. These plants get their gorgeous color from the acidity of the soil. Very basic soil results in deep blues and violets and more acidic soil produces a bright pink.

These particular plants were at my all time favorite ice cream shop, Sundae School Ice Cream Parlor. I confirmed with an employee through email that their ice cream is gluten-free previously though email, which they responded too super quickly, too! They just reminded me to stay away from obviously not gluten-free ingredients like brownies and cookies.

"Don't skip Sundae School"

Kahlua Chip Hot Fudge Sundae! 

I got the Kahlua Chip ice cream in a signature sundae. These are my favorite sundaes because they make their own hot fudge and whipped cream, and their cherries are the real deal. We visited the Harwich store but there are several other locations across the cape as well!

Before this we made a stop at Chatham Fish and Lobster Company in Chatham. This is honestly the only reason we went to the cape on this occasion. Their fried seafood is unbelievable AND gluten-free! It's very cool because the entire fried menu is gluten-free so there is no risk of contamination. I got the fisherman's platter which included shrimp, scallops, clams, fish, french fries and onion rings. I tweeted a picture of this so if you want to take a look, check it out there. 

I would strongly recommend this place for anyone, regardless of their gluten situation. We also brought home three quarts of their clam chowder, sadly not gluten-free, for everyone else! Be careful if you do decide to visit though, at their main location in Chatham they have a mini restaurant and also a fish market but their second "location" is another fish market inside a supermarket in Dennis so no fried food there!
