So I didn’t run last night – we tried out a new small group from our church instead. . . I’ll run tonight though, I promise! Also, I just read this and it gave me another reason to be excited about living in Austin: Austin is ranked 13 in the ranking of sustainable cities with ambitious plans for climbing the sustainable ladder! Portland is ranked number 1 which makes me glad that we visited there to see what they’re doing correctly that we can take back with us and implement in Austin. Yay Austin! I was surprised (and very happy) to read that Dallas, Houston and San Antonio are stepping up their environmental responsibility – I never thought I would see the day when most of Texas would become part of the sustainable quest. 🙂 El Paso, on the other hand, not doing so hot. . . but that’s another story.
Anyways, back to the food. I have been on a quest to figure out how to make even somewhat decent gelato after having experienced the best gelato while I was in Italy. I’ve tried a couple differently methods, some involving eggs and milk, and I think my favorite recipes are the ones that involve thickening whole milk with cornstarch. This recipe that I found is a great base to experiment with other gelato flavors.
