Mother's Day is right around the corner, a holiday that honestly really hasn't meant very much to me until recent years. But as I grew up and moved away and then came back closer to home, it always meant so much to me to be able to spend the weekend with my mom.
Now that I'm far away again, I really wish I could just teleport back to Virginia for brunch or even coffee, or maybe a scoop of this delicious ice cream--it's strawberry rhubarb and I made it myself in celebration of spring and Mother's Day and all the wonderful women I'm lucky enough to have in my life.
When I told La Crema that I wanted to make some strawberry rhubarb ice cream for Mother's Day, they sent me a couple bottles of their Monterey Pinot Noir Rosé. This stuff is my favorite and if you haven't had it, you have to try it! It's especially good with a scoop of strawberry rhubarb. Pink wine and pink ice cream--what's not to love, especially for Mother's Day?
I don't make ice cream very often but whenever I do, I'm always kind of enchanted by how simple it really is, even though the result can be downright luxurious.
Fresh strawberries, bright rhubarb, a nice glass of wine--I hope you get to enjoy and share in some quiet moments (and ice cream) with the people you love this weekend. And if you're looking for a fun craft to do together, this wine bottle succulent planter DIY is still one of my favorite projects.
