Ice Cold Summer

by Lisa C.

“I have never tasted ice cream. Diana tried to explain what it was like, but I guess ice cream is one of those things that are beyond imagination.”

Anne Shirley in Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery

The sun is shining (sometimes), the temperature is rising (sometimes), and that can only mean that summer has somewhat arrived in the Pacific Northwest! I don’t need a change of season though to give me an excuse to enjoy a myriad of frozen delights. I am lucky enough to live near multiple delicious ice cream shops that are open for business all year long. In my family, a trip to the ice cream shop is a quintessential summer activity though. Even so, I recently discovered that asking spirited children to don masks and not touch anything while they waited for their cones to also be a stressful summer activity.  The solution? Make ice cream at home! It’s a tasty and fun family activity and you don’t have to worry about the kids taking off their masks to lick the display case!

Check out this list for a few of the many ice cream cookbooks you can find in Sno-Isle Libraries’ collection, including some that don’t require an ice cream maker. Did you know you can make ice cream in a bag? Put your feet up while the kids work play.

What flavor combinations will you be trying this summer? Buttered mashed potatoes anyone?
