homemade strawberry ice cream

Our July 4th Holiday was a very relaxed one this year. Tom had to work for six hours in the morning, so I decided to work too. Feels different, being a freelance consultant for my former employer in Germany, and picking my own hours.

In the afternoon we had Nancy and Beth over, to enjoy some hamburgers and hot dogs on our new *hybrid* = charcoal and/or gas grill. 5ff9d230f3d8495e5a231b4a8e567511.jpgFor dessert Tom made delicious strawberry ice cream, from scratch, in a machine he had bought at the auction where we recently got our pool table. This was the most perfect ice cream I've ever had in my life! Smooth, creamy, not too sweet, with little chunks of strawberry melting on your tongue - I don't think I'll be eating any store-bought ice cream anymore, if I can avoid it.

Later in the evening, when it was finally dark enough, Tom and I lit half of our fireworks. We'll keep the other half for Mollie's birthday, since she didn't get to see them. She is staying at her uncle's house for this week.
