Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream

Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream

Today is the day.  My son Clark and his lovely bride Jessica are getting married.  We are so excited and can hardly believe the day has arrived.   I thought today’s recipe was pretty appropriate because this is probably what we are doing right now…..

Yes, that would be melting.  It is suppose to be 115 degrees today in Phoenix.  I am not sure this Northwest, use to 70 degree summer days girl is going to be able to handle this!!

I am just going to keep thinking about this yummy vanilla ice cream and it will keep me cool.  Maybe I’ll even find me some Arizona ice cream to help cool me off!!
