its the small things...

This weekend was a full one, but one where I got to stay at home at least.
It was full of small things, but the BEST things.

At work Friday (and Thursday) we made homemade peach ice cream. It was beyond amazing.

Friday night, I cooked some lasagna, made a salad, and enjoyed watching Andy wrestled with my bottle of wine. And he really did wrestle.

We both spent literally 20 minutes trying to get it open. But in the end, Andy persevered.
And I got my wine.

Saturday was spent with my sweet friend, Kelsey.
We spent the day with the rest of her vet school class at the coolest pond. It had a trampoline, zip lines, and giant diving boards. It was so much fun to spend some time in the sun with a good friend.

Saturday night, Andy and I ate at a friends house for dinner. They cooked a HUGE amount of ribs and more homemade ice cream.

Sunday morning was spent at church followed by eating Mexican, being lazy, finding the worlds smallest carrots, and cooking for HA's parents. We even made more homemade ice cream.

So you might notice from this post, that I LOVE ICE CREAM.
Seriously. I am addicted.
So here is the super easy recipe, it is so much better than store-bought and really simple.

Easy Ice Cream

2 1/2 cups sugar
2 cans evaporated milk
1 Tbls vanilla
1/2 gallon milk

Now just puree your fruit (I used strawberries and peaches), add the fruit, sugar, evaporated milk, and vanilla to your mixer. Fill to "fill line" with milk.

I made this recipe in a large mixer, the one that you fill with ice on the sides. Churn until the mixer stops on its own. This makes soft-serve like ice cream. You can freeze in the freezer to get it to be more like store-bought, I don't wait that long. I just jump in.

NOTE: I used non-fat evaporated milk, and 1% milk and it turned out great. Some may turn there nose up at this, and say GO FULL FAT. However, I try to cut it back where I can, and I seriously couldn't tell the difference.

What was super fun about your weekend??


Linking up today with Alli, Sami, and Carly!

I just made homemade vanilla ice cream over the weekend! I used 1% milk and half and half and it turned out SO creamy. I have to try the peach next time, yum!

Homemade peach ice cream brings me back to my childhood. My dad used to always make it for us. And the wine debacle is CRACKING me up! Glad you finally go your vino! ;)

Nothing, I made a joke about them with Andy's parents, that everyone got one for their salads, but they were too cute to eat!

Montana said...

Sounds like such a fun weekend! I've never had homemade ice cream before and now I feel like I'm seriously missing out.
