Re: Basically it's sunday

Okay, then, easiest homemade ice cream recipe ever. This is from a cookbook called Apples for Jam by Tessa Kiros.

1 cup cream (I have done it using both table (18%) cream and whipping (35%) cream - use whipping)
1/2 cup maple syrup
1 cup milk (I use whole)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Combine cream and maple syrup in a bowl or container with a lid (I use a 5-cup Rubbermaid that is narrow and deep rather than wide and shallow). Whisk in milk and vanilla. Whisk. Put lid on and place in freezer for one hour. Remove lid and whisk again. Put lid on and place in freezer for two hours. Remove lid and whisk (or more likely mix and fold with a fork unless you have some sort of industrial whisk!) one last time. Put back in the freezer to set fully.

I have made it twice now in as many weeks, and it is easy, delicious and, most of all, easy!

Enjoy!

That sounds very similar to the recipes in my ice cream ball book. But I don't know that I can wait that long for ice cream. I will try it. Thanks. Just not this minute.

Re: Basically it's sunday

back from the inlaws. Diapers are in the dryer and I picked up an exersaucer that my friend let me borrow

tomorrow I'm going through the baby's clothes, and washing all the 3-6 month size. Things like pants and shorts and shirts still fit, but all the sleepers and onesies are super small... I hate packing away clothes. It makes me feel like my baby is getting too big too fast.

Okay, ladies, we are signing off.

And Cheryl, the best way to do it so you don't feel the delay too much is to start it in the late afternoon, an hour or two before dinner. Then you are all busy doing dinnerish things, and don't have too much time to think about how much longer it will be until you can eat ice cream.

not sure. I have to go to a "meeting" about that on the 17th, there is a hearing on the 20th...and nothing "permanent" will be done until her 9 months is up in February 2011. I am not allowed to Homeschool the children per. my agreement with DCF. It is considered a "safety plan" to have them public and visible while in my care....??!! ya know?

DH & I are going to be having another convo about the children and our plans for them VERY soon. I think it is pretty evident they will not be going back to their mom ANY time soon.

Then those people can sell off the other fabrics if they don't want them. that's what I thought Peggy meant when she suggested it. NO picking and choosing, that's not any easier than selling them individually.
I was thinking just pulling out all the fabric you wanna get rid of, pairing it up into groups that will fill a FRB and snapping a pick of the "pile" of fabric that would be included in each box. ya know? If you tell them it could be any of the fabrics in my gallery...they would probably expect some of the ones you don't wanna get rid of to end up in the boxes
