I'm officially closing the giveaway. I won't be able to accept any comments posted after 11am PST today. Barring any disasters--like my daughter getting into the slips and eating them--I'll post the winner of the drawing tomorrow. I had planned on doing it today, but I am still filling out these little pieces of paper.
(Yes, Random.org would be simpler but with all the double and triple entries and the spread sheet I would have to create to list everyone, this feels easier and I can photograph a real drawing. Whereas a shot of me hitting the Random button feels kind of... hollow. Right?. Besides, my two year old has this instinctive pesky-toddler desire to come over and repeatedly palm slap my laptop's keyboard whenever I am working on important documents.)
Also, I apologize for not getting my usual Monday post up. Father's Day had me a bit busy this weekend and I ended up cooking for Monday's post on Monday (never a good blogger move). I ended up waiting for a batch of Pomegranate ice cream to firm up so I could scoop and photograph it. However, by the time I expected it to be ready, much of my light had faded so I decided to put off the shoot until today.
Of course, being my normal scatter brained self, I often return containers of ice cream into the refrigerator rather than freezer.
Which is where I found it this morning.
Yea, this batch of ice cream isn't looking so firm.
So, I'm going to make the ice cream again today, as it was absolutely delicious and blog worthy. Though, I may make a few adjustments since I have the opportunity to toy with it again.
For the pie contest folks. I still have 2/3 pies to test and taste. I'll try to whip out another one today. Hopefully I can squeeze it in between the paper slips, the ice cream, and the dentist... which is where I am heading off to now.
Hopefully my pearly whites have weathered the onslaught of Scottish Tablet and the Honeycomb Ice Cream reasonably well.
