Friday Treat!

HAPPY FRIDAY!!!  We survived another week!  Earlier this week, Luke and I made homemade ice cream with our Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker.  I can't even begin to tell you how great it is!  We absolutely love it!  It's so easy to use and the ice cream is so much better than any ice cream you buy in the store. 

This week we made chocolate caramel ice cream and then we made strawberry ice cream.  Both were so yummy!  We used the recipe that came with the ice cream maker because we haven't mastered the ice cream recipes yet.  Last night, we decided to make a milkshake using the strawberry ice cream. 

Strawberry Milkshake for one:

1 Pint of strawberry ice cream
1/4 cup of milk (for thinner shake add more milk)
1/4 cup of strawberry's diced small (add a tablespoon of sugar)
1/4 cup of cool whip (thawed)

First, put your diced strawberries into a bowl.  Sprinkle about a tablespoon of sugar over the strawberries and let it sit for a few minutes.  Next, spoon the pint of ice cream and cool whip into a blender along with the milk and diced strawberries.  Blend until combined. 

By the way, I mentioned last week that Izzy seemed to be feeling deprived of my attention so I spent a lot of time with her last weekend.  I threw tennis balls for her to fetch in the backyard, we went for a walk and I gave her a new toy.  As you can see, she was a happy girl!

I think she was very ready for me to go back to work on Monday though.  She was totally exhausted.  I don't think she could have handled a third day with me. :)

I've been itching to get an ice cream maker for a while now. I already have way too many appliances with limited storage space :( but this looks so yummy! Hi Izzy....her smile says it all!
