July 15th is National Ice Cream Day! (recipe)

I guess we’ve reached that point in the summer when it’s actually time to unearth my ice cream maker from the depths of the kitchen cabinets.

Yup, I actually do have one…it was one of the most exciting things that I got to add to my wedding registry.  For the first few years, I used it a ton…then I broke the bowl and forgot about it for a bit.  At some point in the middle of the winter, I ordered a replacement bowl and told myself that I would be making a ton of ice cream this summer….

Not quite yet.

I’ve eaten plenty of ice cream, mind you, but I haven’t been able to get my act together to make any. The forethought involved in putting the bowl in the freezer the night before just hasn’t quite worked out.
