Would ya look at this--I've said it once before, even quite recently, but seriously, could there be more blue eyes and an angelic face on a kid? (Yes, he needs a haircut big time!)
And then there's this guy, who thinks he can ride a bike, but can't even reach the pedals. It doesn't matter, he's cuter than pie.
And a really rare occurrence--all four of them together.
Of course, it's because they are all enjoying a treat together before bedtime, which seems to be an every-night thing around here.
You remember the pink lemonade sherbert I told you about recently?
A little recipe recap for you--
Katrina's Refreshing Pink Lemonade Sherbert
1 1/2 cups half and half
1 cup whole milk
1/2 cup agave nectar (or sugar)
1 can pink lemonade concentrate
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
pinch of salt
3 drops of red food color (optional for darker pink color--I did use it_
Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and whisk to mix thoroughly. Process in ice cream maker following manufacture's instructions. Put the thickened mixture in a air tight container and freezer at least two hours. Or enjoy it immediately in glasses with straws! It was like a really yummy, thick, tasty Slurpee. Be careful, this is the brain freezing kind of stuff! ;)
We had some leftover, so I scooped it into cups for the boys and topped it off with some 7-Up for delicious
LEMON-UP FLOATS (I came up with that name and thinks it's pretty darn cool!) The boys love Root Beer Floats, and they really liked these. (It helps that they don't get pop much, so they think it's pretty awesome when they do.)
Sam wasn't up for trying for one more group picture.
And one more quick summer treat. I looked at a lot of recipes, but ended up coming up with my own
Lower Fat Banana Ice Cream, by Katrina
2 cups half and half
8 ounces fat free sweetened condensed milk
2 bananas, mashed
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Whisk all ingredients together in a large bowl. Add to ice cream maker and churn according to manufacture's instructions. Freeze for about 2 hours. Mmmm. This is great with some chopped nuts on top, or a little chocolate, or some chocolate chips and peanuts, or.....lots of things!
