This post on summer treats is sponsored by Global Influence. All words and opinions are my own.

For some people, hearing the jingly music of an ice cream truck rolling down their street is the epitome of summer.  That’s not a memory I can really share.  Growing up in a rural part of Maine, there were no ice cream trucks that came door to door.

There were a handful of times, however, that I recall being able to partake in that particular rite of passage.  When we would go camping there would sometimes be an ice cream truck that would come rolling around in the evenings.  Once you heard the music, you just hoped you had enough time to scrounge up some change for tasty summer treats before they passed by.

I take a ton of pictures every month.  Heck, I take a ton of pictures every week.  With each click, I’m always thankful that digital cameras are available for home use because I would be spending a fortune having them all developed!

We’ve all had one.  One of those days where nothing goes our way and all we really want to do is grab a spoon and pint of ice cream and tell the world to take a number.

Alexander has had one of those days.  It starts out with gum in his hair, and just gets worse from there.  And when he attempts to get a little sympathy from his family, he doesn’t find anyone to commiserate with him.  Soon, though, each member of Alexander’s family finds themselves struggling with their own terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day.

Crustless Quiche Recipe

In the movie, Alexander’s father Ben serves up a crustless quiche recipe for his family.  I think you’ll find this recipe so easy that even if you’re having a horrible day and have little time (or patience) to put dinner on the table, that you’ll be able to pull it off without much trouble.
