Fill 'er up!!
Welcome to Sundae Sunday! What is that, you ask? Well, if you're a regular reader of my blog, you've probably noticed my recent (well, ongoing) obsession with all things ice cream. We've been suffering through an incredible heat wave here in central Texas--we're up to almost 40 days of 100º+ temperatures since late May. This week, the intense heat has branched out to other parts of the country, and many of my blogging friends are suffering through it as well. At least I have air-conditioning! So what better time to make some delicious frozen treats? Plus July is National Ice Cream Month! It would be a shame to let it pass without some celebration.
So it seemed like a good time for a blogging event. Back in December, I hosted a Virtual Cookie Exchange. A bunch of us got together and posted cookie recipes on the same day, so we could share our favorites with each other. This is the same sort of thing--we're having a virtual ice cream social, with ice cream or other frozen treats or related items (e.g. sundae toppings). My sundae post will be up later today (a tease--I hope you like caramel!). Later this week I'll have a round-up of what everyone made.
I've also decided to make this a seasonal thing. I love getting my friends together for an event like this, but I know everyone is busy, so I don't want it to be too often. The schedule will be roughly as follows...
Summer - July
Autumn - late September or early October
Holidays - December
Winter - February
Spring - late April or early May
If this sounds like fun and you'd like to participate in future events, leave a comment on this post (make sure it's not anonymous, or I won't have a way to contact you) or send me an email at diskitchennotebook at gmail dot com. The more the merrier! I should have a specific theme for the next event figured out by early September. In the meantime, look around for some delicious ice cream recipes!
