In Our Little Corner of the World…

…this happened!

We welcomed a new class of Midshipmen to the Academy for Plebe summer…

…and my Hero examined about 1000 eyeballs.

    We joined a cavalcade of bicycles and tricycles parading in full glory through the neighborhood…

…and hoped beyond hope that we can ohhhhh and ahhhh as fireworks explode above the Naval Academy…just like last year…the weather does not look good.  

And then this happened…

It can happen for you as well

Classic Patriotic Ice Cream

1 1/2 cups of whole milk

1 1/8 cups of granulated Sugar

3 cups heavy cream

1 1/2 tablespoons vanilla extract

1 cup chopped strawberries

1 cup blueberries

1. Combine milk , cream, sugar and vanilla.  Chill for one hour. 

2. Pour into ice cream maker. Churn for 15 minutes. Add blueberries and strawberries. Churn 15 more minutes. 

3.  Transfer into lidded container and freezer 1-2 hours before serving.  

My keen eye readers will note the lack of blueberries…seems that frozen blueberries and frozen black beans look alike to certain people…go figure

  1. What a great post for July the 4th! Your little Princess appears to be having a fabulous time in the parade. I like the tray your ice cream is sitting on; very cool! And is there anything better than homemade ice cream? I think not! I remember my grandmother’s. It was the very best I’ve ever eaten. Happy 4th of July and I hope you get to enjoy those fireworks like last year!



  2. I did not read your post at a good time. I just got home from Zumba class, I’m starving and waiting for my husband to light the BBQ. The ice cream sounds delicious and I’m craving some right now.

    Thanks for sharing at SYC.


  3. Nothing like seeing servicemen to make your heart swell! Also have a soft spot for children parades. Your little one looks so cute and the ice cream sounds delicious! Thanks for sharing the recipe with SYC.


  4. I love your pictures in this post! I can imagine that the 4th of July in Annapolis must be pretty special. I’m so glad you shared this.

    Thank you so much for joining Thoughts of Home on Thursday. We are honored to have you. 😉


  5. Amy, how special it must be to live near one of our military schools. And the ice cream looks delicious, even without blueberries and black beans. Thank you for sharing at Your Inspired Design.


  6. Love it. 1000 eyeballs. The icecream looks fantastic and I can’t even imagine the Naval Academy fireworks!


  7. I don’t know how I missed this post Amy but I am so glad I see it tonight. What a darling treasured photo of the Princess. I tell you – this one should go in a frame and be taken out on the 4th!


  8. Thank you so much for the ice cream recipe, it looks delicious. The Princess seemed to have enjoyed her ride, and the picture of the fireworks is amazing.
