Sprouted Fig (The Smoothie Lover)
August 1, 2013

Our trip to our summerhouse started out in a little funny way. You know the feeling of knowing you have forgotten something you just can’t figure out what. I often have that feeling. Also when we sat in the car ready for driving toward the summerhouse. I just knew it. I just didn’t know what.

And then suddently it hid me: The hook for my ice cream maker.

Oh no… what a tragedy it would be. Me in the summerhouse withit being able to make ice cream. (Ok, feel the irony). I had all of the things for the little machine – just not the hook. So I asked my family if we could please go home and get it. Well, we hadn’t even hid the high way yet but still I felt like an idiot. Going home again just to get a little piece of plastic. Haha…

Luckily my family (kind as they are) drove back to let me get it. Well, I didn’t doubt it. That’s what family do – let you go back and get something totally unimportant to them because they know it means something to you. Oh, how I love my family.

Yesterday I had fun playing house-photograph. Like such ones who take pictures for the magazines. I have never taken such photos before, but it was a lot of fun. I know they aren’t very good. But it is a start.

I love my summerhouse. I like how it isn’t perfect. Not as all of those you see in the magazines where everything is more than perfect. But still I really like the style in the house. It is light and there are light wooden floors. Actually nothing special, but I love it because it’s my summerhouse.

My good old summerhouse.

But now for the ice cream. Thanks to the little ice cream hook ;)

Blueberry Ice Cream

1 ltr. / 4 cups

In a bowl beat the egg yolks, sugar and vanilla extract until light. Mash the blueberries coarsely (I used a spoon, because I didn’t have a food processor).

Add the berries to the egg yolks and stir.

Mix in the cream and milk.

Turn in our ice cream maker according to the manufacturers instuctions.

Transfer into an air tight container and leave in the freezer for about an hour to harden up.

  1. Ok, are you kidding?? The photos of the house are beyond beautiful (and so is the house itself)! Lucky you, everything looks fantastic. Above all, that bowl of ice-cream: I’m in love with blueberries.
    Funny thing is that I also forgot to get my ice-cream maker hook when we moved to our summer country house earlier this summer. I made my mother go back to our old house to get the hook, just to discover that I had already got it, but I hadn’t kept them in the same bag where I’d put the ice-cream machine… hahaha. What would I do without my beloved ice-cream maker? ;-)

      Thank you so much :) That comment means a lot to me
      Haha, how funny. But I’m glad to hear I’m not the only crazy one who goes back for an ice-cream-maker-hook (looooong word btw) :D
      What should we do without an ice cream maker? ;) Especially in the summer time…
