SUNDAY, JUNE 8th 3-5pm
First Presbyterian Church, Franklin Rd, Nashville

Recently I was asked if I would like to be a judge for the 2014 Purity Miss Martha’s Ice Cream Crankin’ and Summer Social. To judge an ice cream contest is basically a DREAM COME TRUE. As I just mentioned in my last post, I eat ice cream year round. And I have a full category of ice cream recipes here on my blog, with both traditional flavors & crazy flavors. Some of my absolute favorite &/or most notable include:

I can’t wait to see what flavors everyone comes up with at this year’s Ice Cream Crankin’ Contest! Elliott & I went last year with our buddies and we had SO MUCH FUN! There was live music, & fun activities for kids. I definitely wasn’t able to sample all of the ice cream that day, in part because I had to keep up with Elliott & keep him happy, as well as I just didn’t have the stomach space! As a judge I’ll get there early this year, so I’ll be sure and come hungry.

A little background info on the Martha O’Bryan Center, it is a non-profit founded in 1894 and has been operating at it’s current site in East Nashville since 1948. They help with everything from child & youth development and activities to college and career counseling. They serve over 6,000 individuals a year, specifically helping people at the low income poverty level. So come on out and support a great cause, and most importantly eat LOTS of ice cream!

This event always has a great crown, but I’d love to see lots of friends there, so spread the word & please come! The event is Sunday, June 8th, 3-5pm, rain or shine. Tickets are on sale now, and they’re $10 for adults, $8 for children in advance. Friday at midnight the price goes up to $13 for adults, $10 for children. Children under age 2 attend for free. For more info and to purchase tickets, visit their website.

    Nothing better than being force-fed ice cream! I’m gonna have to try that honey ice cream out.
