Whew! Sorry so late today. This trying-to-do-my-job-while-all-the-kids-are-at-home thing is not working out very well. Someone always needs something, dadgummit! It’s 3:38pm and the first time I’ve had a chance to sit down all day.
(Also, I haven’t showered. Or eaten lunch. Or breakfast.)
Anyhoo…We have a new gelato shop in town, Pacuigo, and our family is singlehandedly keeping it in business. ($3.50 for a teeny, tiny kid-size scoop…eek!) In the interest of preserving our nest egg and in warding off our 90-degree temps, I figured out how to create our favorite summer gelato flavor – strawberry.
This is silky, silky smooth (and I don’t even bother straining it before freezing). Use the ripest, yummiest strawberries you can find and don’t forget the splash of lemon!
