Too hot for me.
Ice cream might help me cope.
Mr. Cactus is the ice cream lover in our house.
Many years ago when we purchased our first home, we saved our $$ to buy an upright freezer. We felt this was an important appliance for our growing family.
I remember when it was first delivered in our garage, I gazed at all that empty space and wondered how we would ever afford to fill it with food.
Mr. Cactus had his own dreams.
He ran to the store and purchased several cartons of ice cream. He lined the middle shelf with those colorful cartons, and stood back and smiled.
"Now I can have any kind of ice cream I want, anytime I want." he proudly announced.
You see, Mr. Cactus comes from a family of 9 children, 6 of them boys. Ice cream was a rare treat as he was growing up, and if it did appear, someone else usually got to it first.
Cook's Illustrated has a great idea for preventing ice crystals on ice cream.
As the ice cream is eaten, cut off the empty part of the container with scissors or a knife.
Replace the lid and return the container to the freezer.
