take my word for it wednesday.. this stuff is good..

despite the funky photo.. this stuff was good good..

i am not an ice cream fan.. pete is a "fan"atic of ice cream.. i like it, i enjoy it, but do i crave it and plan things around getting it.. umm no.. but pete does.. ha.. so much so that he has his own bowl made for him by sam that says pete's ice cream bowl.. and the other day on his b day he came in and said guess what sam got me and i said a dairy queen gift card and he said no a blizzard.. for those that know us i don't atually listen all the time to pete which makes for interesting conversations case in point i heard lizard.. so i repleid why in the world did she get that and what in the heck tarnation (no i didn't say tarnation but this a family friendly blog he he ) are you going to do with that.. and he looked at me like i was crazy and said umm eat it.. and i replied with what? what? you can eat them?? so for the next few minutes we were both extremely confused.. but on to why i made this yummy stuff right here..

years ago i got an ice cream maker for christmas.. and well i used it a few times..i had a cabinet in the garage that i thought was for me to put things in that i didin't use often but wanted to keep for the times that i did use them.. well pete had another idea for what the cabinet was.. he assumed if i put it out in the garage i must not ever plan on using any of these items again and well they needed to be donated.. sooo goodbye ice cream maker, electric skillet and pressure cooker to name a few things i no longer have but once enjoyed using..the other day i actually was wanting home made ice cream.. but what to do without an ice cream maker?? i had a recipe from forever ago i don't know where i printed it from and i googled it and couldn't find it.. when i find the original recipe author i will update my post.. but if i were to pick a favorite ice cream i have two.. chocolate chip and orange sherbert ( i know its not an ice cream per say) and i love to pour chocolate sauce over my orange sherbert.. umm helllllooo super yummy..
