In 1984, Ronald Reagan declared July to be Ice Cream month. As well he should! What better month to celebrate the icy treat? Have you heard I'm having a virtual Ice Cream Social in commemoration of this cool month? Well in case you hadn't, I'm using this weeks Flashback Friday as a shameless plug for my event.
Hope everyone will join me the weekend of July 17th-18th. If you feel so inclined you can add your ice cream related post featuring your favorite ice cream recipe, ice cream dessert, ice cream themed table setting, you favorite ice cream product or ice cream memory. Anything ice cream is okay by me. Check out last year's post HERE to see what it's all about. If you don't want to link a post, just come hang out and check out everyone else's ice cream goodies. Maybe someone will come up with an ice cream craft like this Sherwin Williams ad I love.
I made this awesome fresh Raspberry with Chocolate Chunks ice cream for last year's event and I thought it would be a perfect time to repeat since many of you may have ripe raspberries to use up. I think this would be great with strawberries or cherries too! Another plus for this recipe is that there's no cooking involved.

If you have a flashback of ANY kind please add your link below, then link back to me on your blog. It can be a favorite recipe, old post, last year's flowers, snow from December...whatever floats your boat.
I'm joining in this week over at Designs by Gollum for Foodie Friday. Michael Lee has something I love featured this week....Check it out HERE.
