On the bayou, it’s lively and tasty and ordered with a strong man at the head of the table. The new matriarch, his baby girl, sits close by, and her son and daughter, grandchildren, brothers, friends, nephews and nieces buzz, reflect, and try to drink this short time in.
We celebrate 84 years of a gentleman’s good life.
We celebrate another birthday with earplugs, full stomachs, and all kinds of booms.
Here’s a picture of it and its maker.
It tastes like cheesecake.
If this is a secret recipe, pray Aunt Sharon forgives me.
Aunt Sharon’s Buttermilk Ice Cream
2 quarts buttermilk
2 pints whipping cream
4 cups of sugar
2 tablespoons of vanilla
Pour sugar and vanilla into a bowl with enough buttermilk to allow the sugar to dissolve. Add 1 pt. of whipped cream. Pour in freezer and add all buttermilk and whipped cream. Continue to add milk until until it hits the fill line.
Wait patiently, allow to freeze, then use your largest spoon.
