I did something bad...very bad. I bought an ice cream maker. As many of you know ice cream is my kryptonite. I completely justified the purchase after reading the ingredients in what I thought was "healthy" ice cream. I was wrong. So I figured if I am going to indulge in ice cream, I at least want to know what the ingredients are.
Last month strawberries were ripe for the picking everywhere. We found a favorite patch about a thirty minute beautiful drive away...
Corn fields with storm clouds rolling in...
In the patch...I think my fingers were stained red for about two weeks!
