Summer is a great time to enjoy treats from the freezer. In Florida, cold items are more of a necessity when the heat is ramping up. We had my parents and grandmother over for Memorial Day dinner. I surprised Paul with new gelato by Talenti that is sold at Publix. I allowed my guests to have their choice of chocolate, vanilla, and coconut gelato and raspberry sorbetto. I also served some very festive raspberries and blackberries on a plate at the table to accompany the dessert.
Our dear friend, Garrett Nudd, will be devastated to know that I actually purchased guacamole instead of making it at home. Now, hear me out. I had a coupon for Buy One, Get One Free. Plus, they were on sale for, like, $2.64. The avocados around the stores looked horrible and were ridiculously priced. What's a girl to do? I decided this would be a great test. What happens when avocados are out of season, but you're dying for guacamole? There are millions of people out there wanting to know what to do! I must save them! (How's that for drama, Garrett?)
