Summer where art thou?
I wish I could say that we are experiencing Summer here in Gran Canaria, but, I would be lying. Truth be said, we´ve had a few nice, even hot days. Unfortunately that only lasts a few days at a time and then we´re back to the cold. The days range from cold to “perhaps it could be warmer today”.
I´m tired of the cold. So over it! I want me some Summer-rrrrrr.
However that didn´t stop me from making this delicious homemade raspberry sorbet *smile*
Homemade is best
This homemade raspberry sorbet is delicious! It´s made with frozen raspberries and sugar.. and a blender.. That´s it! I mean really! If I knew making frozen sorbet was as easy as that I would have started making my own a long time ago.
My blender unfortunately is not the best so I needed to make it in two batches, but, if you have a heavy duty blender like this Kitchen Aid one you don´t have to split the ingredients in two. Perhaps if I´m a good girl and I behave well (what´s the hope of that happening) hubby will buy me one.. just maybe.. because my list of what I want is already very long *smile*.

A side note: I went shopping with my teenage daughter yesterday. Well actually the whole family went but hubby and Luca (5 years old) basically sat waiting outside the shops on a bench because they were bored! Luca always complains of tummy ache when we go shopping. Then, as soon as we get back into the car he is perfectly fine! Men! You gotta love them *smile*.
I stocked-up on some “must have” t-shirts and bought a really cool statement necklace. I can´t wait to wear it! I don´t know about you guys but I´m loving the Bohemian look that has been brought back this Summer! It´s so pretty! Do you agree?
