Day 149–All-American Tradition

The 4th just isn’t complete without homemade ice cream.  Grandma Carmen used an old family recipe passed down from generation to generation.  Along with the recipe came stories about how there was no electricity on the farm until she was 10 years old.  The crank on the ice cream machine had to be turned by hand.  Whether cranked by hand or by electricity, this sweet treat is worth the work and the wait!

I can't imagine wearing a sweatshirt on the 4th of July!!! We went to a parade at 9:00 in the morning and I sweated like I never have before. Do you wish you were here???
