We enjoyed a simple weekend. It was casual and relaxing.
A little bit of swimming.
And a little bit of summertime treats that I promise your kids will love.
This is all you need (sugar, half and half, vanilla, salt, and ice) for some made-in-minutes ice cream.
2. Place the small ziplock of ingredients in a larger ziplock filled with ice cubes and salt.
3. Shake for five minutes - or until your kid whines that his arm is getting tired and he's ready for his treat nnooooowwww.
Tiny suggestion if you decide to try this: Remind your kids not to lick the ice cream bag since it'll be covered in salt from being in the larger bag. My boys learned this the hard way.
Now that I know it's a hit, I'll be armed and ready with sundae toppings next time.
