My first home-made ice-cream; strawberries and cream. It was absolutely gorgeous, if but quick to melt in this heat. Which was no bother, because I wolfed it down in minutes. Sorry it does contain sugar but at least the recipe was simple, fresh and additive free. I am sure my little ice-cream maker is going to be put to good use in this weather.
The other first was my food-bank volunteering session at the local Asda, handing out leaflets and asking people to donate whatever they could afford. Loved every minute of it, some people were very generous and others made the choice not to donate. It's a free world and giving is not compulsory. A lot of people have their own troubles and concerns but you could see the positive boost a donation gave people, however big or small. Hats off to them all because I know it can't be easy especially when they have families to feed.
Right then I am off to do some salad building.
Have a wonderful weekend. xxx
