My Kind of Day!

Happy National  Ice Cream Day!

I would have to say that this day is definitely in my top 5 favorite days!

The weather couldn’t be any better today(complete turn around from the past week), so I see a bit of this is my future—>

Did I mention that I recently got an ice cream maker? I had no experience whatsoever in the ice cream making scene, but I am a total ice cream fanatic, so I knew exactly what I wanted. A cheesecake flavor, a chewy consistency(which I achieved by using guar gum), blueberries, and an overdose of cinnamon. I got it perfect the first try! I was not expecting a creamy but chewy, savory but sweet, and such a treat on the first try! This is such a great way for me to save money instead of paying for a $3 cup of ice cream all the time. And the ice cream maker was $20 at Wal-Mart! I highly suggest getting one if you eat ice cream all the time and like to customize to your hearts’ content! =)

Happy Ice Cream Day to you too. I think if I owned an ice cream maker I would overdose on the stuff.

Hope you'll pop by my new blog and let me know what you think.
