July 17th is National Ice Cream Day! Got A Favorite Flavor?

Did you know that July 17th is National Ice Cream day? I didn't know that until recently but once I found out that we have a National Ice Cream Day I couldn't resist in planning a little ice cream party for my family here at our home.

We have a fabulous homemade ice cream maker from Cuisinart so I put that into action yesterday and made 2 great batches of homemade ice cream. We made a batch of chocolate ice cream with marshmallow creme and we made a batch of vanilla raspberry ice cream with freshly picked red raspberries that I got from our backyard. Once the ice cream was made...we loaded on the whipped cream, cherries, chocolate shavings and sprinkles and sat down as a family enjoyed our ice creams!

Do you like ice cream? If so, do you have a favorite flavor or brand of ice cream that you enjoy? How often do you eat ice cream? I know here...we love ice cream especially a good homemade one!
