Ice Cream!

The day before yesterday, I took the liberty of using up one of my grandma's ripe bananas and make a half batch of banana ice cream. Now I just have an awkward random amount of heavy cream left. I can't find the recipe on tastespotting at the moment and can't be bothered to try and hunt it down at the moment as I've got it written down at my grandma's. Anyway, let it freeze up overnight and it was rather tasty although all the banana bits sunk down to the bottom. Then I accidentally left it out on the counter overnight because I'm smart like that. So I'll be sure to post the recipe when I've got my hands on it again because the temperature is starting to rise and honestly, who doesn't like ice cream?

A couple weeks ago, I also ended up buying a copy of David Lebovitz's The Perfect Scoop and was so excited to get it home and pore over all the tastiest ways to fatten up my beloved friends and family. *wrings hands in a sinister fashion* Don't worry, I really do love you all and it's all for the best. I promise. Anyway, I need to be sure to take that and another ice cream book my mom bought me for valentine's day over to my grandma's where all of my kitchen shenanigans take place for future use. And I need to make more ice cream sandwiches with my 'slighty-burned-but-I-tried-to-fix-it' version of David Lebovitz's Salted Butter Caramel ice cream. Maybe with saltine crackers as the ice cream itself is rather rich and was far far too sweet when sandwiched between cookies. Ideas, anyone?
