We all scream for ice cream!!! If you did not know it already, today is National Ice Cream Day...Do the right thing and have yourself a big double dip cone or a big messy hot fudge sundae or as we say in Boston, a chocolate frappe with tons of whipped cream. It doesn't matter what you pick just do it and have fun...It's the law!!!

Great!! I remember wh en you got your machine..Do you use it a lot? I don't get to use mine as often as i would like. I think I'm going to try some sorbet this week.Have you ever made it, or sherbert? I love sherbert and buy it all the time. (the price is right for it too!) I love to experiment but if things don't come out right it can get pretty costly. Some of the recipes I have for ice cream (custard based) call for 8 yolks, plus the cream (heavy) which is about the same price as a good steak lol. Vanilla beans are unreal too. I was in the market the other day and went to look at them. They wanted almost 8 bucks and there was only 1 bean in the jar. They must be out of their minds..I decided to go with chocolate needless to say!

I haven't use it a lot, and I didn't last year because I had no life thanks to the stupid math class I took. I was hoping to make some today, but my husband didn't pick up the ingredients, so it will have to wait. I am not surprised at the price of vanilla beans and because of this drought, a lot of food prices may soar...

Me too smilemoon, but you know what I like best....vanilla! When I'm cooking on the boat I am always creating some kind of exotic sauce for ice cream. I've learned to turn an everyday dish of ice cream into what appears to be a high end dessert and vanilla goes with all!

Well considering it's approaching the upper 80s/low 90s and the humidity is high, I might have to celebrate the holiday! Thanks for the reminder/info that today is National Ice Cream Day.

I did not know that today is the worldwide day of ice cream but it sounds very good. Yet I also I love ice cream and if I will eat buckets of ice cream this is a wonderful solution in warm and hot days

If that's the case then unfortunately, I am a criminal of the day. I can't enjoy this today because I have a bad colds and probably fever coming up. I woke up with a heavy head ache and had chills last night. I would love to have an ice cream if only I could.

I will be taking the kids out for ice cream later today to celebrate. Though a reason to eat ice cream is really not necessary. Happy Ice Cream Day!!

Didn't know there was a national ice cream day in your place. Wow! If there is an Ice cream day here in the middle east and in this hot and humid weather - I bet there will be a shortage of ice cream.

Lucky you guys, you have national ice cream day over there. We don't over here, but doesn't mean i wont be having my ice cream. I guess it's not wrong for me to do some diry bulking (bodybuilding terms). Well, in fact i'm going now. See you later.

What are ya nuts? It's the middle of winter here in Australia But on a serious note I didn't know but could be because it's not in my country? But now talking about it it does sound nice but I'm much too cold so I'm going to have a nice cup of tea instead
