What a crazy month!

April has been crazy for us with procedures to buy our first house. It’s been very exciting and stressful… so many phone calls, emails, and things to do! Crazy!

Well, that is exactly why I picked this recipe from A Cook’s Quest for this month’s Secret Recipe Club posting. I loved flipping through all the recipe filled pages debating over different things to make but I kept going back to doing this amazing ice cream.

When I saw the recipe for Peanut Butter Cup Ice Cream I knew that I had to do it. It would be super simple but so intense.

And that is what we needed this month considering everything going on. Sometimes a big bowl of ice cream helps melt away all the stress.

It would be the perfect sweet treat to enjoy to end the month. Plus, it would give the ice cream maker a bit of work before being packed up for a bit.

 

This is one the creamiest ice creams I ever made. The high fat content from the peanut butter and that fact that everything is mixed so thoroughly really made this so smooth and creamy.

Plus, who can resist the combination of chocolate and peanut butter!?

I found the recipe really easy to make and would definitely make it again and again!

Serves 8 (1/2 cup portions)

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 Cups smooth peanut butter
  • 3/4 Cup sugar
  • 2 Cups 2% milk (alt, 1 Cup skim milk,  1 Cup whole milk)

Process

  1. To create the ice cream base, use a mixer to combine the peanut butter and sugar until smooth.
  2. Slowly add in the milk and mix until all the sugar is dissolved, approximately 2 full minutes. Add the heavy cream, beat until well combined and smooth.
  3. Refrigerate at least 1 hour to chill the mixture. Freeze the mini peanut butter cups.
  4. After the ice cream base as chilled, follow your ice cream makers directions to process the ice cream.
  5. When you ice cream is done, mix in the frozen peanut butter cups.
  6. Transfer to a storage container. Ensure the peanut butter cups are well mixed throughout.
  7. You can enjoy the ice cream now with a soft-serve consistency at this point.  Or you can let it chill again, for a least another hour to set up

NOOOOO, NOT FRANK!!!!!!!!

Some a-hole hit our car while I was at CVS today getting photos developed. I didn’t notice it from the way that I parked, as I did not need to pass the back of the car to get into the driver’s seat. But Pricer had to run an errand tonight and saw it while he was out. He came back looking very solemn and said ‘Someone hit Frank’. At first I thought he was talking about a scratch on the passenger’s side of the bumper so I went out to take a look, but holy hell someone really hit our Frank The Tank*

Thanks jerk. 

 

*Price named the car ‘Frank The Tank’ because this teeny tiny car has put up with our crazy city driving and our long crazy adventures.

Corgi Addict

Highlight of my day…

So there I am just standing on City Hall plaza waiting for lunch from Lobsta Love. I was freezing my butt off because I was originally just running some jobs over to the job site and didn’t grab my coat. Well, I order and turn around…

see this lovely face!! I instantly knew that I had to meet this corgi and take some pictures to send to Emily. Emily is a hardcore corgi addict. How can you blame her? These guys are just so adorable! She loves them as much as I love french bulldogs. ZOMG! their squishy faces! So irresistible! Anyway…

Well, as luck would have it his owner told me that this guy was in fact the background to Corgi Addict. Umm corgi in a lobster suit in a pot. Hell ya! It was just so serendipitous since I was waiting in line at Lobsta Love food truck. Well, this guy’s name is Edison and he likes to eat snowballs.

Edison was so adorable. I didn’t realize that I had my phone on video at first so I think he was a little confused with my holding it in face for it bit while trying to take a photo. He did not approve.

I snapped one last picture before they headed off. Such a lovely dog 🙂

Happy Friday!!

What are you up to this weekend?

We are busy with packing and finishing up misc things for our house closing on Monday(!) and meeting up with Pricer’s mom for her birthday.

1,2,3 Dance LO: Day 9- KP’s Sketchbook 4

{Day 9}

This might just be my favorite layout I have made in a while. I loved getting to pull out all different random pieces to work with this sketch. I have tons and tons of fun embellishments but I don’t use a lot on my pages for some reason. I have to shake that habit since it was a lot of fun to pull out all these brads, tags, stickers, and clips. It seems like I did a little bit of everything on this layout (except washi tape.. crazy!) , and I’m okay with that. I have the stuff… I should use it!

The biggest shocker to me was using such a dark solid piece of cardstock for the base of my layout. Softening up the color and adding some ‘pizzazz’ with the Mister Huey’s Opaque White really transformed it. I am getting hooked on Mister Huey’s… umm hello… I used it on all of these recent layouts that I have posted.
