I'm contributing pumpkin ice cream to our Friendsgiving this weekend. I like that it's a traditional Thanksgiving flavor in a non-traditional Thanksgiving vehicle. And I like that I was able to (obviously) make it ahead of time. Now, on the day of, I can just play sous-chef to Micah and his contributions: turkey, green bean casserole, rolls, gravy, cranberry sauce, and deviled eggs.
Ice cream: making lazy people look hardworking since forever (or - since the ice cream maker was invented).
