Making ice cream is pretty easy: Basically, all you do is churn some milk and sugar in an ice-cold container. Usually, that container is a tub-shaped thing with a crank, but it could take any shape.

Bonfires are overrated. It's cold and windy, there's sand everywhere, there's never any booze left, you smell like a burnt french outdoorsman and there's a creepy geetar player with questionable facial hair trying to steal your girlfriend.
