The boys and I have got sore throats and Mark is running a bit of a temperature, so to cheer us all up (and boost the vit-C intake) I hauled out the ice-cream machine and made a batch of raspberry from the fruit we picked on Saturday.
Our machine is just a cheap number, with a bowl you freeze before adding the mixture. It works fine though and I always feel more virtuous feeding the kids homemade stuff with no additives. The raspberry recipe couldn't be simpler - make custard, chill, add raspberries squished with a fork with a little extra sugar. Churn and eat.
We only have a weenie freezer inside and a dinky one in the garage, but I usually manage to have the bowl frozen and ready to go. Part of me envies people with huge freezers, but I know I'm not organised enough to use one effectively. I NEVER remember to get stuff out to defrost in time.
Creative Little Daisy's flashing her freezer today. Feel free to join her! I'm too ashamed... the only items in regular use from mine are peas, ice cubes and ice cream. The rest is just in transit to the bin - I have such good intentions when I put stuff in there, but I forget it and then chuck it out when I next defrost, because it's so old.
