Can you believe it’s already the end of July? Summer is coming to an end so quickly!! We’re heading down to Massachusetts this weekend to watch the Patriots practice…which means Football season is right around the corner! My husband is counting down the days..I love football, but I’m in no rush to hurry Summer! We have been so busy, and are getting even busier in the next 55 days before we leave! Time’s flyiiiiiiin’. Someone please slow her down…k thankssss.
omgomgomg!! We bought a new car last week! Like brand new! I’m so totally in love. So is my two year old. Hes hysterical…he asks to go on car rides about ten times a day, and cries when it comes time to get OUT of the car! haha It is so nice having an SUV..so much easier with kiddos, car seats, strollers..now we can actually fit more than just the four of us in it! We can fit EIGHT! And we already have..We headed down to a beach bar last weekend for some live music, dancing, cold beers, and late night dips in the ocean..What a blast its been! Man on man am I going to miss the ocean so much when we move..Ive been spoiled only being a couple miles away from it my whole life..I wish I could take it with meee.
Since July is National Ice Cream month, I couldn’t let you get by without an Ice Cream recipe! My sister came up for the week to stay with us last week, and we broke in my new Ice Cream Maker. I.can’t.stop. Homemade ice cream is a dreeeeam. Such dangerously delicious smooth and creamy goodness. I LOVE ice cream. We made this Peanut Butter Swirled White Chocolate flavor and it is PERFECT. If you know me at all, you know I have a huge love affair with white chocolate, I prefer it over dark or milk chocolate any day. (Except when I’m pregnant, so weird.)
This white chocolate ice cream is so creamy, and there is peanut butter in every.single.bite. I hate when I buy ice cream at the store claiming PB swirls and then you only get them in one out of every eight bites. Not cool. This one has it everywhere. Its amazing. And it doesn’t get super hard in the freezer! No more bent spoons, its perfectly scoop-able. I always thought homemade ice cream was really hard or a pain in the tookus, and while it can certainly be time consuming, mostly a lot of waiting, it is worth every single second. With the exception of my beloved Talenti Gelato, I will never go back to store bought ice cream!
