Jerk Chicken with Fired Rice and Grilled Pineapple Salsa.
It is a complete white out right now. Like white as can be, snow coming down so hard.
Been going strong all day.
It’s the perfect weather for a nice cold ice cream cone! Just perfect!
Seriously though, the last time I made ice cream it was also snowing. Whats up? Colorado you can pound me with snow all you want, but that sure as heck is not going to stop me from making ice cream.
Or going through practically the whole pint of ice cream (five ice cream cones, and ALL the spoons in the drawer) shivering our butts off tasting it.
We’re freezing, but we are trying to pretend it is 80 degrees sunny and that we’re sitting by the pool licking our cones clean. Thanks to the heat dish (A.K.A the sun around here) it is actually working! Bring it on snow!
I almost took a picture of my lovely cone sitting out on our deck on a nice spring day… with snow dumping all around it. Unfortunately, it was starting to get dark by the time I thought of it and I am afraid the effect would have been lost. I guess you’ll just have to picture it.
This ice cream almost did not happen.
First, I had to actually decide which ice flavor/combo I wanted to do. Obviously, that was hard for me. I have like five variations of this ice cream. So for what felt like hours I went back and forth, back and forth, on which one to do. Guys, I am insane. Simple decisions like this should not be this hard.
Then after I finally decided what to do and had made the ice cream mixture I went to get the freezer bowl out of the freezer only to find it was not completely frozen. Yeah, that was just awful.
I had put the bowl in the freezer two-days earlier, but I guess my freezer door was not cold enough to freeze the dang thing! So freaking frustrating. Especially since I stole a few licks of the ice cream, which pretty much just tormented me for the next twenty-four hours well I waited for the freezer bowl to actually freeze.
Misery people. Don’t do this to yourself.
Basically this is the ultimate ice cream. It is a milk chocolate ice cream base, with the fudgiest brownie chunks and a peanut butter swirl. It is what every warm spring, hot summer or cold snowy day needs.
Asher has declared it her new favorite ice cream. She wants me to tell you that is it SO good and that the chunks of brownie are her favorite part, but that the swirl of peanut butter is her second favorite part. She said that she had to make the brownies her favorite because brownies are chocolate, and if she had to choose brownies or peanut butter, she’d choose brownies.
Yeah, she is definitely my mom’s daughter.
Ok, so the most important thing?
Remember to make sure you one, put the freezer bowl in the freezer and two, make sure it is in a cold spot! Trust me you want that thing frozen. Really frozen. Once you taste the ice cream mixture you’ll probably go in insane if you can’t churn it right then! Really, it might drive you insane.
People will not want to deal with you during your twenty-four hours of insanity. I know from experience. People did NOT like me much.

It is pretty much just perfect.
