At any rate, I'm getting better. Bless Amazon's little heart, when I ordered the ice cream maker, they suggested the Ben and Jerry's ice cream recipe book as something I also might be interested in. And what do you know, I was. So I got that too. I let Ethan choose tonight's ice cream flavor from the Ben and Jerry's book and he chose chocolate chip cookie dough.
This was my 4th ice cream attempt and probably my best, if I do say so myself. I couldn't wait for the boys to taste it and give me their feedback. Here's our conversation:
Jonah: It tastes like ice cream.
Me: It is ice cream.
Jonah: I mean real ice cream.
Me: It is real ice cream.
Jonah: I mean real ice cream from the store.
Ethan: It's pretty good, but not as good as the stuff from the store.
Isaac: Mom, your ice cream is better than ice cream from the store.
Me: Thank you Isaac! That's the answer I was looking for.
Jonah: But I didn't know what the right answer was!
