According to the calendar, the first official day of Summer is this week. But we've had Summer temperatures for a month already...which means it was time to pull out our favorite Kitchen appliance (well, besides the Keurig anyway)...the Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker! The kids chose mint chocolate chip for this season's first batch, and it was delish! (I use the past-tense, because it was gone in a day) #oink
