Good morning from Charleston, SC! Eric and I left yesterday, and for the past week, we’ve been preparing for the trip by using up as much of the food in our refrigerator as possible.
I mean, who wants to let a perfect pint of strawberries spoil?
Last week I realized that if you have a lot of milk or fruit that needs to be used up before a vacation (or just before it spoils), you should make recipe that uses both.
You should make gelato.
It was all so delicious, but, more important, we saved innocent strawberries from growing fur this week.
I think making gelato should be a pre-vacation tradition.
Besides saving the perishables, it also enabled me to give you these recipes to make now so you won’t be quite so jealous when I start telling you about everything we’re eating in Charleston.
