A hot day and a sticky black tarmac,
A hot day and I'm wishing I was far away
I don't get this weather. Blazing hot last week. Today, freezing. WHATEVER MOTHER EARTH. So I had been piling up recipes for summer weather to post here, which seems kind of stupid now, but oh well. I'm sure it will heat up...someday.
I busted out the 'ol handy dandy ice cream maker again. It's quite joyful and even zen-like to watch that liquid to turn into a refreshing, tasty cold treat. I had these chocolate covered almonds lying around, and they suddenly became inspiring. I grabbed some, chopped them up, then added them to a simple vanilla ice cream base. It turned out great and added just the right crunch and flavor to the vanilla.Except that I don't want to eat it. I'm bundled up, freezing my tootsies off, thinking about warm delicious hot chocolate. Ohhh....hot chocolate. I'll be back...
