My BF is pretty amazing.  For many different reasons – one of which being that he loves to make things from scratch.  We have fresh homemade bread in the house nearly every week, and there’s always the chance of finding a new concoction for dinner every other night.

So it was no real surprise when he decided to make ice cream on a Friday afternoon.  We voted on mixed berry over lavender/coconut – although I might convince him to make the latter in a few weeks.  And we made sure to grab some raspberries at the store later that evening, to accompany his most recent creation.

The results were pretty heavenly!  This is not your “trying to watch your figure” ice cream, this is full fat – heavy cream kind of heavenly…with a few fresh berries to make you feel better about yourself.

Last weekend the BF and I played ‘tourists’ with his parents in St. Louis.  We went to the sculpture park, visited the animals at the impressive free zoo, cheered on the Cardinals at Busch Stadium, and ate lots of ice cream/frozen custard…is that the thing to do in St Louis? eat frozen custard?…still not sure about that one.

Highlights of the trip?!  A huge eye ball, the penguin habitat (smells like home!), meeting and sitting next to the only other Mariner – ball cap wearing – fan at the Busch Stadium (safety in numbers?), and yes, the ice cream/custard.

Is it bad that my favorite shots taken at the sculpture park are of the park’s seating area?…

_MG_0157Frozen Custard – tasted like soft serve ice cream – nothing wrong with that!

Good times.
