We've gone a little light on the letter I. Munch already knows it because it's in her name, so we did some painting instead and mailed it off with a love note to her cousin.It was also a gymnastics day, so off we went to that- along with a bunch of errands.Neither of us was in the mood for the full alphabet routine when we got home, so for a nice treat, I brought out the ice cream maker. I got the recipe from a Ben & Jerry's cookbook- we decided that chocolate mint Oreo cookie ice cream would be just right for all of us since I like chocolate, Munch's favorite is mint, and AudioDad like cookies n'cream. While I melted the chocolate, Munch got to work crushing the cookies and beating the eggs-we mixed up all the ingredients, poured them into the ice cream machine, and let it crank away.Unfortunately, it didn't freeze well. I discovered the issue was the scraper insert- it wasn't meeting the edge of the freezer bowl, so none of the frozen mixture was getting incorporated with the rest. I stuck a spoon in to scrape the edges as it froze, which worked okay, but what a pain! The ice cream was a little soft when I served it,but after putting the rest away in the freezer overnight, it turned out really nicely.
