This week held some unusually hot days.
Well, sort of. Summer here in Eugene always has a few days in the high 90s. So the heat is "unusual" as in "fairly rare" rather than "unpredictably surprising".
Anyway, the weather prompted me to buy ice at the grocery store during my morning walk with Gallant around the neighborhood, while my wife and Smiley slept more.
Our freezer has an ice maker but we disconnected it several years ago after the plastic tube that travels between the freezer and pipes under the sink had a leak. Now we have ice cube trays and more freezer space. So having a lot of ice at home is unusual. Time to experiment with recipes!
We have a new blender ice cream recipe online. We've made it twice today. Yum!
