July is National Ice Cream Month! Who would have known?!? I discovered this odd but delightful fact while reading this months AAA magazine (the magazine AAA sends to its members to highlight cool and interesting things to do in your area). The irony is that I was reading the article while waiting for a vanilla custard to chill on the 4th of July. The custard was destined to be french vanilla for root beer floats, the all American dessert I planned to serve after my all American 4th of July dinner later that evening. Afterwards I turned the remaining ice cream into mint chocolate chip to satisfy a craving I'd been having.
|What a sweet sight!|
|Mint chocolate chip ice cream shouldn't be green. Freshly chopped mint is all you need!|
