Anticipating one of the world's greatest athletes stepping onto the world stage to try and enter the history books is an exciting and potentially 'once in a lifetime' event. So today, in readiness for watching the Olympic Men's 200 metre race, I made a batch of homemade vanilla ice cream which I knew my family would love. It's a new recipe that I've been wanting to try out for a while since returning from a trip to France where I got the idea.
I was convinced, before the race, that Usain Bolt would win and as such would become a living legend in world sport and my way of sharing in that joy would be to celebrate by enjoying a new ice cream!
My husband asked me "What if he doesn't win?"
My reply: "Don't worry he will! He has to because I've gone to such trouble to make this new ice cream!"
Thank you Usain for repaying my faith :-)
Here's the ice cream I made - served on a meringue nest with sliced, fresh cherries. Delicious!
