Celebrate Ice Cream

Did you know that July is National Ice Cream Month?  Yes, you read it right.  The entire month is dedicated to this fabulous frozen dessert.  Like I needed a reason besides the fact that it’s summer to eat more ice cream.  To celebrate this quirky recognition of July, I thought I’d share some of my family’s favorite ways to enjoy this summer treat.

Have a sundae on Saturday!  We like to break out our traditional sundae glasses, fill them with a couple of scoops and customize it with our favorite toppings.

Speaking of toppings, how about this unique way to serve them?  Put your favorites in champagne glasses and tuck them into a rustic crate.
