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. chocolate. I'll be back...

I can eat ice cream in a snow storm. Especially if it has chocolate covered almonds in it.

I'm with sizzle and can eat ice cream just about any time. However, this yucky, chilly, rainy weather is making me crave hot beverages too. I really need to learn how to use the ice cream maker that someone gave me!
