It wouldn't seem as if making ice-cream fits into the Elastic Mom approach to life, but when the cream is skimmed off buckets of milk from the cow in the field nearby, then ice-cream churning is definitely an Elastic Mom pursuit. If I'm not too careful with my ice-cream passion, then Elastic Mom could rapidly become Spongy Mom, or Squishy Mom.
In the middle of Winter, on our frosty school break, I was gripped with ice-cream fever. I made four types of ice-cream in one week. The results were superb, ultra rich, creamy and smooth....
... definitely of the one-scoop a day to savour its goodness type of thing.
All credit goes to David Lebovitz and his awesome book, The Perfect Scoop. His superb vanilla ice-cream recipe is here;
oh, and credit goes to my generous son for the pocket-money-busting book voucher that he gave me for my birthday which bought the book;
and to my loving husband who heard my rather loud hints that an ice-cream machine would be a perfect birthday present;
yes, and credit to Daisy, Jasmine, and Clover, the pretty jersey cows who provided the creamy milk;
and, my sweet friend, Lisa, who owns the cows;
and our awesome God who thought of ice-cream when He created cows.
