Tomorrow is the last day of summer - which means that today, this minute, is your LAST chance to get in all that summering you've been meaning to do. So grab your sunscreen, leave your work ethic at your desk, and get busy... because the only way to celebrate the end of summer is with homemade ice cream! On the beach (as long as there isn't a wind). Website Serious Eats came up with a brilliant scheme: ice cream made in your home freezer! It takes a few hours (during which the freezer, not you, does all the work), and the results are apparently Haagen-Dazs quality.

What's the trick? Ice cube trays...

But the results look like this.

Ice cream has been my downfall this summer. My husband discovered the most divine home made ice cream from a local dairy farm (wrote about it last month). But this sounds great for when I'm ready to indulge again!

Love the new blog photograph! That ice cream looks too delicious. Will go there now and check out the recipe.
Have a nice evening.

Ahhh, thank you thank you thank you. Though I have a new vice, watermelon Italian ice, I will give it a try.

And couldn't help notice your new header, love it (but loved the other, too.) That is what happens when you are a cutie, it all looks good.

Be well.
