Tasty Tuesday & Book Winner
I'm running out of ways to say just how hot it is, this is getting old! And it's going to get even hotter this week with 6 days of triple digit heat, so any way to keep cool is a must! I've found a neat idea that not only will cool you off but give those bored kiddo's something fun to do and eat! Home made ice cream in a bag!
Homemade Ice Cream in a Bag
1/2 c. half and half
1 T. sugar
1/4 t. vanilla
1 small ziploc bag ( sandwich size)
I gal. ziploc bag
3 c. crushed ice
1/3 c. rock salt
Put first 3 ingredients in the small ziploc bag, seal tightly. Put ice and rock salt in the big ziploc bag, then place the small bag in the big bag and seal. Squeeze bag till the cream mixture thickens, about 10-15 min. Remove from big bag, unseal and eat with spoon, no need to dirty a bowl!
This recipe makes a yummy vanilla ice cream, but to make a chocolate bag, just add some chocolate syrup to the mix, to taste but not too much. How easy was that! A cool treat anytime!
Now, onto our TT book winner, Kim from Home is Where the Heart Is! Congrats Kim, your number came up at Random.org so send me your mailing info. so I can get the book to you! Kim has a lovely blog and for dinner that Tuesday night, she shared that they had raviolis with tomato sauce and fresh green beans from the garden! Sounds pretty tasty to me!! Thanks to everyone who made me hungry reading your menu's, that was fun! Keep cool everyone, make some ice cream in a bag soon!
