This weekend our family will be watching LDS General Conference via the internet. We try to make it an extra fun weekend for our kids. I printed off some conference packets available on Sugardoodle for the kids to color while we're watching conference. We're also going to make a "conference tent" to sit and watch conference from.
And we always try to think of a special treat or two. This year we have a new recipe we came upon kind of by accident. Hubby's chemistry classes had "Liquid Nitrogen" day last week, which involves making liquid nitrogen ice cream, and there was plenty of ice cream ingredients left over...but no liquid nitrogen. We don't have an ice cream maker...so what to do?
Combine in a blender:
Lots of frozen fruit
Half frozen half-and-half. (We put it in the freezer for a couple hours before we're ready to make it.)
A teaspoon or so of vanilla (to taste).
Several tablespoons of sugar (to taste).
Blend until thick and smooth. You may need to add more half-and-half, depending on the strength of your blender.
