I'm having our rehearsal dinner (BBQ) at my house the day before our wedding. My mom will be coming down that Monday, and since we really won't have a ton of stuff to do the week beforehand (I made sure of that!), I was thinking it would be kinda cool to make different types of ice cream for the rehearsal and just keep it in the freezer until that day. We're looking at 40 people though, does anyone know how much ice cream you should have for 40 people? I was thinking about picking up cones as well. So..here's my real question: Does anyone have any suggestions of recipes or ideas of what sort of ice cream to make? I also grow my own herbs, so I have fresh rosemary, mint, basil and cilantro at my disposal, and *hopefully* my strawberry plant will have some strawberries at that point too!
Here's what I'm thinking so far:
- Fresh mint & chocolate chunk
- Plain vanilla
- Perhaps a caramel & sea salt, maybe a regular chocolate ice cream, maybe strawberry basil?
