We are still patiently waiting for the call letting us know if we can come home today. OK, so maybe patiently isn't the right word. I'm actually going a little crazy and needed a diversion since Rachel is asleep. I thought this would be a good way to pass the time.
I'm sharing a recipe that I made a few months ago. Obviously, because I'm not doing a lot of cooking from here in my hotel room. Unless you count mixing up some mean bottles.
I have to say that this is the creamiest homemade ice cream I have ever tasted. EVER. Like so creamy that if it wouldn't have been cold, my tongue wouldn't have known it was ice cream. So smooth and yummy! I opted for the chocolate version, but you could just make regular cookies and cream ice cream. Either version is sure to be amazing. And has no part whatsoever in a diet plan. So save it up for a special occasion. Or just make it because you are in the mood for some rockin' homemade ice cream. Enjoy! I hope my next post is written from my house. Because I really stink at the whole no mouse/laptop keyboard thing!
