Death by Blueberries




Which is utterly incredible and worth every labor intense minute.

Any ice cream that describes itself as "rich French-custard style" and is subtly flavored with lavender grown in your own garden and blueberries picked that day during the middle of a rainstorm is a treasure to be had.

Although I was supposed to wait for Mary and Meredith to make this amazing recipe I could not decline the eager Aunt Mary that stopped over after church and then drove home to get her never-been-used KitchenAid ice cream bowl attachment so we could create it together. Life is short so sometimes you have to live in the moment and tonight we did just that.

Don't worry, we didn't eat it all! Not yet anyway.

Qwilleran and I are both drooling!

I'd say that lavender is too pretty to eat, but nothing is ever too pretty to eat where I come from.

Nice work!

You're forgiven. Carpe Diem is a motto to live by. I hope to make Erin's recipe tomorrow - want to join me?

That looks like a great way to spend the day. I can't imagine ice cream smelling as good as it tastes.
