Summer’s End Ice Cream Round Up


Are you as startled as I am that it is already September 1st? Where did the summer go? I remember looking forward to it so much, to the heat and humidity and all that comes along with that. Trips to the beach and running through the sprinklers, the sound of cicadas, cooking food on the grill…and ice cream, eating lots and lots of ice cream. Back in June, all of this stretched out before me, like it would last forever. But of course, it didn’t. It went by in a flash and even though we packed a lot of activity into our days, I have the sensation that summer somehow passed me by. My son heads off to Grade 1 next week, and my two daughters will be in preschool a few days each week. When school starts, in my mind that’s when summer ends.

But I am not quite willing to let it go just yet. To celebrate the last few days of warmth and laziness, I decided to catalog some of the amazing homemade ice cream treats that caught my eye over the past few months. I had a lot of fun making my own ice cream and other frozen treats this summer, and by all accounts, I am not the only one. My fellow bloggers came up with some gorgeous flavours, and took pictures that left me salivating. If you love ice cream, you have to check out all of these wonderful links.

Let me be clear that this post was a huge undertaking. I had no idea how much work it would be when I started it. For one thing, I took the time to ask each and every blogger if I could use their image. I am a good girl and I believe in respecting copyright! That in itself took time. As did saving and uploading each image and creating the link back to each blog. As I was finishing it up, there were many more amazing ice cream creations posted that I simply didn’t have time to include. Still, I tried to get a good sampling of all sorts of flavours, as well as ice cream sandwiches, cakes and pies.

So please, do me the favour of taking a peek because I put a lot of work into this! Enjoy!
