Letters From Camp: Rainy Days And Ice Cream

Cinnamon Ice Cream with Hot Fudge

Dear Mom and Dad,
It's raining today. Rainy days at camp seem like they would be a bummer, but we always manage to make the best of it. Sometimes rainy days are the disguises for resting days or just plain play days. Today, we made it a play day, which worked out well for everyone.

The kids took our their Legos, made a tent, and then watched a movie. This of course after a little reading comprehension and math work book time- no television until the work's done, right? See, I'm repeating some of your parenting strategies.

I, on the other hand, took out my ice cream maker and decided to play in my kitchen. With the kids busy there was no one to say, "you're putting that in ice cream?" So fabulous! I tried out a batch of what I can only call Mexican Red Velvet. It's more pink than red, but it's a spicy chocolate too, kind of like Mexican Hot Chocolate. It isn't quite right, but with one or two more rainy days, I should be much closer.

With summer fruit at it's peak, I also delved into Black Raspberry. Dad, you know Abby loves this as much as you do, and let me just say that I'm trying really hard to save you some for when you visit. It's awesome, and one of my best creations, along with Coffee.

Don't you wish you had a spoon?


Love from my kitchen on a rainy day,
Tracy

  5. Okay, now you've done it! Now I'm fixated on ice cream. That was cruel, but it sure made my mouth water.
