When I told Erik I was making cream cheese ice cream, he told me it sounded revolting. But I wanted to make ice cream, and BraveTart doesn’t have any bad recipes, so I decided to give it a go. This week was in desperate need of ice cream, especially with some Matzo Crack crumbs left to serve as a topping. Cream cheese ice cream may sound not super appealing, but think of it more as a tangy ice cream. If you like cream cheese frosting on cake, this is the ice cream equivalent. Definitely pairs well with lots of toppings …
I’m not really sure why the weather went from full Summer to deep Fall in the last couple of days, but it has definitely helped ease the transition into my last year of law school. Today, with the rainy coldness that is the outdoors, baking warm cupcakes indoors has been an ideal activity. It would have been a great day to make some sourdough bread, but that would have required much more foresight than I had this week.
It feels like forever ago that I made this cake. (It was Thursday.) I brought it to brunch on Friday with some coworkers, but since then I’ve spent two nights up in Vermont with my cousins, making Friday brunch a distant memory. Fortunately, I remember that it got a lot of compliments.
This was quite the weekend. Yesterday, I baked sourdough bread from scratch for the first time (more on that later). More exciting, I finished knitting my first sock! One more and I’ll have a set! AND my family made an impromptu visit in to have dinner with me (but really for Father’s Day – love you Daddy-o!). This morning I ran a Spartan race. And all afternoon I got to hang out with my best friend from college (hi, Cate!).
