Remember my Cuisinart ice cream maker that my friend got me for my birthday? Mine is 1.5 quart. You can get 2 quart, and other sizes but the 1.5 quart makes enough for the four of us (Chad’s family and me) or it makes enough for Vince and I to have ice cream twice.
I brought the ice cream maker and made strawberry ice cream first. The picture is from when I made it at home . . not here.
We were talking about different flavors and Nicole was telling me how her grandparents used to make banana ice cream so I told her we could do it – 2 mashed up bananas, one can Eagle Brand milk and some cream soda. I made it and she said it was exactly like her grandma used to make. Her grandparents are elderly and don’t get out much so yesterday, I made another batch of banana ice cream for them. Nicole and Addie went over there yesterday afternoon to take it. Nicole was telling her grandma that it tasted just like when they made it. She was telling her grandma the ingredients and she could tell her grandma was skeptical – NOTHING like what she used to make. Nicole said when her grandpa tasted it .. the look on his face was priceless. She said she could tell it brought back memories of them making banana ice cream all the time. When her grandma tasted it, she couldn’t believe it was so much like what she made. They loved it!
I’ll probably make strawberry today . . and then I’ll go to Walmart and buy bigger clothes!
Remember the mixer we bought on clearance at Walmart? I can get the ice cream attachment for it so, when/if we get a place here, I can bring that mixer, and the ice cream attachment and we’ll never be without homemade ice cream.
I’m not thinking so much about the ice cream for Vince and me but more for Addie . . just so you understand that! 🙂
