Summer is my favorite time of year. This weekend we were busy spending time outside, barbecuing, and mingling with friends. Actually this weekend I did not cook a single meal. My husband made breakfast and both nights we ate at our friends’ houses. Stepping out of the kitchen and not having the “burden” of cooking a meal has really inspired me and excited me to get cooking again. I have a good list of food I want to make and share with you soon.
On Saturday evening we joined a small group of people at a sushi making party. It was so much fun and I can’t wait to have my own sushi making party so I can share pictures and recipes with you. For the party I wanted to make a fun dessert that would compliment the sushi theme. At Whole Foods I found sweet matcha powder and used that to make homemade green tea ice cream. Before making the ice cream I hadn’t tried green tea ice cream before so I wasn’t exactly sure what flavor I was trying to create. The ice cream was smooth, sweet, and creamy with a subtle green tea flavor. Everyone seemed to enjoy it at that party. My daughter’s loved the (natural) green color of the ice cream. I am looking forward to cranking out many delicious ice cream recipes this summer.
