This afternoon I picked up this red ball ice cream maker at a yard sale. It's brand new, and the instructions say to add ice on one side, the ingredients on the other side, then seal it up and roll it around for 45 minutes. I like the idea of home made ice cream without a bunch of chemicals in it, but I don't have any kids and don't much like the idea of rolling a ball around for that long. However, I do know someone who could get the job done. (Stetson! Here, boy! Momma's gonna put you to work! ) This project is set for next weekend, because I need to make some ice cubes first.
Yep, that's him, practicing his ball rolling skills with the ice cream maker!
It works, but if you like harder ice cream you might want to stick it in the freezer for a little bit anyhow. (after)
When I had scouts, we used big coffee cans with lids with smaller sealed containers inside (packed with ice and rock salt around the inside container).
The girls took turns rolling them back and forth to each other.
Once, when camping near a ridge we rolled the cans down the ravine. Those didn't turn out quite as great.
Have fun with your pooch...and make sure he gets a bite
He's supposed to stay away from sugars and grains since both feed tumors, but I'll make a one time exception for this. Besides, he'll hit one year of remission on Thursday. We can celebrate that, and he'll get to help make the refreshments.
