My favorite ice cream store.
Has been since I was big enough to stand up in the front seat, between my parents.
That used to be legal!
My mom and dad even got to the point where they wouldn't say the word anymore . . .they'd spell it! . . .As if!!
"Do you want to stop at 'B.R.A.U.M'S?" they'd say.
"I do!" I'd say!
Then, I got where I'd say, "Let's go to B.R.A.U.M'S!"
I was a smart kid!
Now that I'm older . . .and wearing a seatbelt, I like Braum's for:
- ice cream
- egg nog
- sour cream
- chocolate milk
- jalapeno dip
So, why do I write this?
Tonight I made a homemade strawberry sauce, and a mixed berry sauce, and homemade ice cream . . . which made me think of Braum's, which made me think of how much I love ice cream, which made me remember that I've always loved ice cream, which made me think of the funny story about B.R.A.U.M'S!
If you can't get to a Braum's -- first, I feel sorry for you! You need to go find one! But if that's not possible, the make this yummy ice cream at home!
Ok, I already know -- there are raw eggs in the recipe.
I started as a young kid, introducing small amounts of raw egg into my diet, through things like raw cookie dough, cake batter, and delicious ice cream. I've built up a tolerance toward any dangers of raw eggs! But! If you're a little more careful about your ingestion of e coli, use the pasteurized egg substitute in the recipe. I don't know how that stuff works, but if you know the name brand, and you're screaming it right now -- hoping I'll hear, I trust that you'll know exactly how to use it in this recipe!
