-----Pickle Infused Vodka
Artichoke Pesto
---I am wondering what the texture would be like.
---Freeze for up to 6 months.
---The recipe was inspired by piccata-style dishes.
---We have a food processor. Unfortunately, when it was getting put together, one piece got put on prematurely and now I have to wait until I find a special tool for removing that piece (vintage). The recipe mentions making 4 or 5 cups of pesto at a time in a large food processor...that would be nice since the small quantities of store-bought pesto run out so QUICKLY.

-----Hungarian Mushroom Soup with Fresh Dill
So yummy!
This was No Churn Vanilla and Chocolate Creme Cookie Ice Cream that I made with the kids last Summer. The cookies were the generic Great Value(Walmart)...we used maybe 3/4 the amount one might use in the No Churn Oreo Ice Cream recipe I adapted. Of course, this was immensely better than store-bought. :-)

This weird picture is ice cream hardening in the fridge for at least 6 hours. Another great use for those sturdy Blue Bunny containers with the stay fresh seal. The kids helped crush the finer cookie pieces with a rolling pin...crushing things is fun.
#NotNotMessyToMake

Perhaps we will try these:

-----Fresh Peach Ice Cream (no churn)
-----No Churn Strawberry Cheesecake Granola Streusel Ice Cream
-----Balsamic Plum Ice Cream. No churn. Dairy-free.
-----No-Churn Black Sesame Ice Cream. Only 3 ingredients.

Hmmm...
-----No-Churn Cinnamon Ice Cream
-----Fig, Vietnamese Cinnamon and Coffee Ice Cream

One of our next planned (homeschool) reads for Preschooler. The growth of an apple tree and a family of robins throughout the year. Pollination is summed up nicely. This books gives a basic idea of how to make an apple pie...plus there is a recipe that I am excited about trying with the kids. I have very little experience with pie-making...I intend to fix that but have only myself and the internet to teach me.

-----Spiced Apple Pie
-----Almond and Apple Pie
-----Double Crust Apple Pie
