This gift is going to make me FAT...

Tonight I'm making dinner for a neighbor (Roasted Vegetable Lasagna-thanks Sweet Pea Chef !) who just had a baby. I'm also making dessert. I got the Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker for my birthday and I LOVE it. I don't know how I went this long without it. I've been making batches upon batches of it, experimenting with a little of this and a little of that. It tastes so creamy and fresh...but it's also addicting.So tonight, I'm making some for the neighbors (and us too!). This time I'm doing the Basic Vanilla Recipe and I'm putting in crushed peanut butter/chocolate Newman-O's . What's a "Newman-O" you ask? It's like an Oreo, but without all the nasty hydrogenated oils and high fructose corn syrup. I found them at Whole Foods AND they're cheaper than regular Oreo's AND they have peanut butter in them...need I say more? They are so good...
Like I said, I LOVE my new gift, but hopefully it won't make me FAT! Guess I better keep up with all of this running, now I have something to really run for...

Mmmm...I do love me some homemade ice cream! It's so easy when you have whole milk around...just pick up a quart of cream and you have two batches worth ready to go.

Damn...I want to make ice cream now.

I've always wanted an ice cream maker. I love Newmans but I don't buy cookies or I will eat them.

Thanks for the shout out!

Oh geez, I think if I got the ice cream maker:

ice cream constantly + I-don't-run-unless-someone-is-chasing-me =
one overweight SPC.

How divine though!
