I took Stirling to the dentist and hit the health food store and an ethnic supermarket while he was being seen. Then we picked up his, now repaired, work server, which hadn't liked the lightning storms. On the way home we stopped at the health food store again and picked up some goat ice cream. It's the only one I could find that is made with cream and doesn't have stuff like "organic locust bean gum" and "organic guar gum". I just want real ice cream with no stuff that doesn't belong. It tastes better. Never mind all the junk that's in the stuff from the supermarket.

Sounds like you need to get an ice cream maker TL! (Do you eat ice cream regularly?)

No, we don't eat a lot of ice cream. We used to be able to get Haagen Dazs, which was wonderful, but I can't find it this summer. Stirling and I have been saying that we need an ice cream maker, now that we can't just buy good stuff. I wonder what this goat ice cream will be like.

I can't say I have ever tried goat ice cream. But I can't see why it wouldn't be very nice. I look forward to reading your "review".

Katy, in England you can have your icecream left out of the freezer for some time cant you...I remember when I was there and Steve left it on the counter for hours

Over here it has to be put straight back into the freezer or else it will melt

Oh Kylie! That's just mean! But OH so true! You have to plan WELL in advance if you want ice cream from a tub in the freezer! (People have been known to "soften" their ice cream in the microwave.... not me, obviously.)

That is what I thought, it takes a while to soften it as it is so cold

It is annoying in Summer here though, especially if you are out and about and you buy an icecream, you have to eat in quickly or it all melts down your hand

This last fortnight, you would have felt right at home here Kylie! It hasn't been like England at all and ice cream has been melting all over the place!

Sounds good to me

I really loved England when I was over there on holiday!

What areas are close to where you live Katy?
