Pimp your ice cream and don’t look back

Ice creams are for the summer ... or not? That creamy invention that was born as a combination of dairy, eggs and an extra added flavor in the form of vanilla, chocolate or fruit -among many other things-, shakes while the whole is frozen, can give us a lot of play if we accompany it with other preparations or garnish it with other interesting ingredients. Here are several ideas to raise a simple ice cream to another level, which with them can do much more than put a couple of solitary balls in a bowl. No problem.

Leaving home

It would be very difficult to summarize the relationship with home better than Vivian Gornick: "If you don't leave home you suffocate, if you go too far you lack oxygen."

May ‘batch cooking’: cook one afternoon and eat all week

May is the hinge month par excellence, that time of year when spring already flirts with summer but can still remind us that it was not so long ago it was winter, so you have to leave home prepared for any scenario. The last artichokes also frolic with the first cherries, the avocados and broccoli leave and the nectarines appear, the pea heads to the bench after playing all season while the tomatoes heat up to come out, and we think how to cook them all during a late to be able to dedicate the rest of the week to other tasks.As we suggested last month with the salmon, we can prepare the broth for the corvina soup with its bones and its head, and freeze what is left over - if the corvina is large it can be used several times - for other preparations.
