Friday Fare!

Mrs. Nurse Boy here.

It is finally Friday.  We have had a bit of a dreary, rainy week.  Frankly, the break in the weather this week has been a blessing.  The boys spent their mornings out on the soccerfields at their favorite soccer camp.  I think it is their little peace of heaven here on earth. 


Here are my handsome players!

Since it is Friday, I must share a recipe for a perfect summer treat.  This is a special recipe for all of your kids or grand kids.  It is perfect for hot, steamy weather.

ICE CREAM in a Bag

Ingredients and Supplies Needed:
(one serving)
sandwich-size zipper bag
1/2 cup whole milk
1 Tablespoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
gallon-size zipper bag
ice (fill gallon bag halfway)
6 Tablespoons rock salt

1.  Combine milk, sugar, and vanilla in small zipper bag and seal tightly.
2.  Add the rock salt to the large bag of ice.
3.  Place the small sealed bag inside the large bag and seal.
4.  Send the kids outside and have them shake their bag for about 5 minutes.



This is a perfect activity right after a nice day at the pool.



Even my 4 year old made her own ice cream.


And, sometimes they are so excited to enjoy their special treat that there is no time to even bother with a bowl.

(Truth be told, it tastes a lot like "ice milk," but it has still been a hit around here.)

Have a wonderful weekend!!

That sounds so easy, even an adult could do it.

I will have to keep this in mind for when Jaylon gets a little older!
Your kids are so photogenic!!! :-)
I remember those days spent at the soccer field! Well, actually, more like Saturday mornings. Hot, muggy Saturday mornings. (Can you tell I wasn't too crazy about 'em?) :-)

First off. Hi! I hope you haven't forgotten me.

I definitely want to try the ice cream in a bag. I've heard of it before. We use to have a container that the kids could roll back and forth to make the ice cream. This would be fun for camping.
