I understand that for many of you this is not unusual but for us Canadians, our igloos have normally just melted and we've just moved into our summer huts . .(tongue firmly in cheek) The wonderful thing was that it was perfect weather to have some ice cream. Late in the evening we sat outside waiting for the house to cool. Rarely can we sit outside with a T shirt and shorts until 11 pm. Fabulous . .loved it.
Everything has a good side to it including scorching weather. It seemed fitting to break out the Ice cream Maker that received chuckles from those I love most when I purchased it last year. "Another Kitchen appliance eh?" they said. I love appliances. Such fun.
I made up a batch of Rocky Road Ice Cream for Terry. It's his favorite and he smiled when at 10:30 last night I brought us each a bowl full to eat in the cool of the evening.
I used . . . .
2 cups of heavy cream
1 cup of light cream
1/2 cup of unsweetened Cocoa
1 14 oz. can of sweetened Condensed Milk
2 teaspoons of vanilla
3/4 cup of chopped Fresh Walnuts . . .make sure they are fresh . ..rancid nuts are not nice
1 1/2 cups of little marshmallows
I I mixed the condensed milk with the cocoa and let it sit for about 10 minutes, then I added the creams and the vanilla. I put this in the fridge to cool really well . . .about an hour and then I put it in my handy dandy electric ice cream appliance and when it had nearly finished I added the nuts and the marshmallows.
I put this in the freezer for the appropriate length of waiting. The longer you wait . . .the less calories it has . ..giggle.
Tell me . . .what is your favorite Ice Cream flavour? If we find one that stands out . . perhaps, I'll whip a batch in your honour and post it with spoons to share . . .We'll have an online Ice Cream social . . .sort of. . .
