The end of August, can you believe it? Summer might as well be over. I know, Summer doesn’t officially end until the 3rd week of September, or something like that. But my kids have been back in school for 2 full weeks now. We’re going on week 3 of getting up at 5 am every stinkin day.

My poor kids are so tired when they get home, when it’s time for bed, I don’t even have to tell them, they’re already there. I just have to turn off the extra lights left on and pick up the occasional stray sock.

To add to the end of summer blues, it was cold this morning! Ok, not cold, but it was chilly. When I let the dog out at 5:30 (even the dog doesn’t want to get out of bed at 5am) it was 55 degrees. Don’t get me wrong, I love fall. I can’t wait to pull all my sweaters out. Fall means Friday night football games, the colors changing, opening the windows at night, Halloween….Halloween Candy!

Fall is like the opener for the Holiday season. So I like fall, a lot.  But fall still means the end of summer.

And I like summer, no schedule, shorts and flip flops, cooking outside, beach time, swimming, cooking outside (oh I mentioned that one already) and Homemade Ice Cream.

I don’t know why we only make ice cream in the summer. Yes I do, it’s really hard to think about ice cold ice cream (even if it is the most yummy ever ice cream in the world) when you are freezing your butt off sitting on a metal bleacher at that Friday night football game and it’s 20 degrees and windy.

Since fall is creeping in, this Praline Pecan Fudge Swirl Ice cream is probably the last homemade ice cream we’ll have until next spring, unless we have a heatwave come through. It’s all god, you always save the best for last.
