Are you hungry already? Then read on!

Growing up, one of my favorite summer memories my family did was make chocolate chip ice cream sandwiches. They were usually made to accompany a BBQ, which meant friends and neighbors coming over to our house, some burgers or hot dogs and a personal favorite, deviled eggs with Best Foods Mayo. The drink of choice is a nice glass of iced tea. Did you know that Lipton's have cold brew iced tea now? Just put the bag or two of tea into a glass of cold water, wait 5 minutes then done! You have yourself a glass of iced tea! Now back to ice cream, which was a summer time staple with the crunch of the cookie, the smoothness of the chocolate chips and the yummy vanilla ice cream running down your arm as you try and eat it faster than it melts. Yup, that is a summer memory and it reminded me so much of those fun summer days that I made one for myself the other day with Breyers All Natural Vanilla ice cream from Albertsons  or Safeway and some homemade chocolate chip cookies. 

If you ever come over to visit and stay until about 9pm, there will be a familiar sound of the opening of the freezer and my husband scooping himself a big bowl of ice cream. It is a pretty regular routine in the Henning household and on average you will find 2-3 different flavors of ice cream in our freezer although recently we have starting venturing into ice cream bars and during the Albertson's anniversary sale, this is a perfect excuse to try new ice cream treats when they are on sale.  

And because finding a cute baby in the ice cream aisle is just the sweetest thing ;-)

To me, there is nothing like a nice summer night, enjoying the cool of the evening with a bowl of ice cream or an ice cream bar. Whether sitting on a porch, on a swing, or just laying in the summer, ice cream and summer certainly go together and now is the perfect time to grab a gallon of classic vanilla or try something new like a Fruttare Mango bar at the Albertsons Anniversary Sale! You can stock up on your ice cream favorites now until August 11 when their anniversary sale closes.

What favorite memories do you have of summer and ice cream?

Precious boo in the stroller brought a smile to my face when I saw this on Insta yesterday! I used to make an ice cream sandwich with the fresh cookies and ice cream in the college cafeteria for dinner hah. Those were the days when you could eat whatever you wanted all the time!
