It has been hot lately. Very hot. And it didn't help that the air conditioner in part of our house was not working. Ironically this meant that the coolest and most welcoming room in the house was the kitchen. Naturally on these kinds of days, the best thing to make is something frozen (also the reason that July has been dubbed national ice cream month!) So I made four fruity flavors of ice cream- banana, strawberry, peach and key lime. All very refreshing and cheery.
For dinner we served lasana (gluten free and not) and a variety of grilled summer vegetables. I love grilling vegetables because it makes their natural sweetness come out (especially peppers).
