National Soft Ice Cream Day

Ice Cream Cone Pillow

Anyone who knows me knows that I love ice cream, especially soft serve ice cream. When the children were young, we used to take them to walk the Poteet flea market, La Pulga. The children were interested in raspas (snow cones), but my favorite stand was the soft ice cream stand. The best vanilla soft serve in the San Antonio area!

For my mom’s birthday, I got her a Cuisinart ice cream maker. She loved it so much, I got one for myself. Last week I made homemade peach ice cream. Tonight I’ll be making lemon sorbet. It’s so easy – just freeze the bowl for 24 hours, then combine your ingredients and pour them in. When you turn it on, the bowl spins slowly, and 20 minutes later you have wonderful homemade ice cream. Yummy!

I love ice cream so much, I made an ice cream cone pillow using Bernat blanket yarn. It’s nearly 3 feet tall and super squishy!
