    Dinner tonight is leftovers from a lovely lunch I also had with dear friends who brought the amazing ice cream listed below! :-)

    I can say that without a doubt, the ice cream was delicious. I am definitely going to make it once the stash Jdouglas brought is gone (which will probably be by tomorrow knowing my girls).

    lindabates - that sounds like a lot of work, but 3 tasty dinners!

    raesmom1612 - so glad your mom is doing well. Saying prayers for your grandma.

    garnertoy - we had deviled eggs with lunch today - yum!

    We had a lovely lunch with some dear friends today, so dinner will probably be light. Maybe Caesar salad with some shrimp.

    I made the most awesome homemade ice cream last night -- no ice cream machine needed. All you need is an electric mixer or even an egg beater and some muscle. Here's the link:
    I made vanilla bean ice cream with chocolate marble swirl (just chocolate syrup dragged through the finished cream). I may never buy ice cream again! Peach ice cream is up next, and then I'm hoping to come up with a praline concoction. I can't wait to make some for my Dad the next time I go up to visit.

    granoftwenty~im sorry I didn't see your post last night. It was girls night and by the time I got home it was sleepy bye bye for me lol

    The packet was really good. Had a bit of spice to it but Rae and DH loved it.....I could only tolerate a little piece (still trying to work my way up to full meals).

    Mom is doing really good at home lots of family have come to visit, help keep up with the house, cook food etc. but grama is still in the hospital. She is having some trouble walking. Not sure if it is bc she has been laying down for so long or if she hit her head so hard that she just no longer has the ability to walk. They are still running tests on her. Thanks for asking :)

    Tonights dinner will most likely be beef tacos since I have some lettuce that needs to be used up today. Sour cream, cheese, salsa, corn and of course lettuce as toppings.
