Ice Cream Anyone?

OK, sorry there is not much to this picture but TRADITION turned out to be a hard one for me. Although I do like the curvature on it and the way "Rocky Road" is the only thing in complete focus. In my family growing up, we always had ice cream in the freezer. There were eight kids so it was usually the big buckets of ice cream. And still to this day you cannot go to my parents house without being offered a bowl of ice cream. All the grandkids know that this is the grandma and grandpa's house with ice cream. I was shocked when I got married and my husbands family rarely had ice cream. So apparently it is a Smith tradition and like a good girl, it's one that I will be carrying on!

I had a really difficult time with this assigment as well. It was hard to come up with an interesting take on it. But I think you succeeded. What a great tradition to carry on and a fun family story to share.

Yum Yum! I especially like the slow-churned varieties because they have so much less fat. This is a fantastic tradition for you to continue!
