For Christmas, we received a ball that you can roll around and make home-made ice cream in. Being that we are ice cream lovers this sounded like the perfect family gift. We made ice cream last night and Connor did not want to help roll the ball. Angela made it to the half-way point when we had to stop and stir. Therefore, Brian and I had the majority of the work. But, of course, the kids helped to reap the rewards. I guess at this point in our lives, a family gift is not always for the whole entire family. The recipe we used was sort of a custardy type ice cream and it was really yummy. We just need to double the recipe and maybe we will be able to freeze the extra and have it two nights in a row.
