The Setting: A balmy 79-degree-Fahrenheit day. Love it.
The Soundtrack: The whir of the box fan perched in my bedroom window.
On the Stovetop: Kale and mushrooms.
The Scenario: I hope everyone has stayed cool this summer and enjoyed the excerpts from Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams at Home.
Working my way through this colorful cookbook has been a double-scoop of a good time, and I can't wait to break it open again soon when the leaves outside are various shades of autumn and the flavors of fall begin to beckon--Roasted Pumpkin Five-Spice Ice Cream, anyone?
But for now, as we cling to the final days of summer, I thought I'd offer up a little recap of what we've scooped up so far:
|Backyard Mint Ice Cream|
|Kona Stout Ice Cream|
|Sweet Corn and Black Raspberry Ice Cream|
|Homemade Ice Cream Cones|
If you can't decide on just one flavor to keep you cool before the thermostat starts its autumnal descent (and how could anyone blame you?), why not round up your friends, divide up the flavors, and throw a little ice-cream party to send summer out on a sweet note?
Thanks for reading! Here's to Being the Secret Ingredient in your life!
