I am not crafty. I do not sew, paste things, scrapbook, make gift baskets, or otherwise affix cute hand-written labels to anything. Everything I try to make looks like it was created by a 7 year old, and not in a cute-sloppy way. Whatever gene that Martha has that enables her to make perfect hand-made goods completely skipped me.
So it surprised even me that I was willing to try a very girl scout type task of homemade ice cream in a bag with the kids. I was pretty sure it would fail.
Fortunately, it’s dead simple. Put 1/2 c dairy (half and half or milk) in a small ziplock with 1 Tbs sugar, and the tiniest little drop of vanilla you can imagine. Dump that into a gallon bag half filled with ice and 6 Tbs rock salt. Have the kids shake for 5 minutes.
Of course, you know who did most of the shaking…
It tasted pretty wonderful.
