Summer Is Here

Ciao Bella Key Lime Gelato Ice Cream Sandwiches

Yikes where has the time gone. As you can see my posting has been interrupted by a little thing called summer vacation. The last week of school is insane and every year I say I am not going to let it be crazy with the end of the year this and that. Actually, this year was calmer than most because we did not attend every single event that was happening. With my son leaving elementary and moving on to middle school and my daughter leaving middle school and entering high school this year is a big transition.

The first week of summer vacation goes so fast. When I was a kid I remember summers lasting forever. Now as I am experiencing summer with my kids I feel like I blink and before I know it Target has the Back To School banners hanging from the ceiling. Melancholy sets in.

We are into our second week of summer vacation and I feel like I can breath again. The last week of school the kids were graduating from their respective schools, I had a very hectic food styling job, received an email to contribute to an online food magazine for which I now have deadlines, and my camera went on the fritz. Hit the panic button.

So now all things have been resolved and I am back in the blogosphere.

Today is the actual first day of summer, the summer solstice. I have a nice little summer treat to share. My husband found these in the freezer one night and told me to please keep buying them. We love these sinfully creamy icy cold squares of delight. They are Key Lime Gelato Ice Cream Sandwiches from Ciao Bella. The tangy lime gelato combined with the graham cracker cookie is a match made in heaven. They can be hard to find but if your store sells any Ciao Bella product buy it. I have not met a product from them that I have not adored.


  1. I know what you mean about summer vacation. My kids are in college but I do remember graduating from one elementary to middle school. What a big deal that was! Summer was a blast and semi-lazy, at least I tried!

    Love key lime and welcome to HonestCooking.com!

  2. @sweetsavoryplanet, it does go quickly doesn't it! Thanks for the nice note.
