Each year Memorial Weekend is the bookend holiday that marks the beginning of summer. Weekends are soon filled with BBQs, long days at the beach, lemonade out of mason jars with cute straws and ice cream...lots of ice cream.
One of our favorites ice cream places has to be Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams. The flavors her and her wonderful team come up with are to die for. To name a few of her amazing creations: Black Coffee, Brambleberry Crisp, Pistachio and Honey Mint and Cherry Lambic. Since her shop is in Ohio, we have to find alternatives. (Jeni's is sold at certain locations, *thankfully* you can find one near you here)
If you feel adventurous, Jenis also has a book for at home recipes! A fun way that we've discovered how to make ice cream is with this ice cream ball. It's perfect for kicking around while chatting around the BBQ, all while it churns your delicious treat.
To top it all off we found the perfect All American star serving stand and in my opinion my fave no fuss ice cream scoop. Don't forget to show your patriotic stripes in our Lost Control wedges.
Aside from the great time to spend with family and friends Memorial Day is a day to remember and give thanks to all the men and women who gave their lives in the service of this country.
Happy Memorial Day :)
