Donating Hair

Goodness I feel it's been awhile since we've chatted. School is winding down for the kids, but that means life is picking up for me. More kids, more entertainment ideas to come up with, and just more awareness around the house will be required these upcoming months. I've got some great summer ideas coming up for you, but today I want to talk about my 2 awesome oldest.

Princess V and Princess C decided one day last week they wanted their hair cut. We've talked about it often before, usually concluding that Princess V wasn't quite ready to emotionally let go of her hair, and mom being emotionally attached to Princess C's hair.

Strawberry Ice Cream

Strawberry Ice Cream. Lower Sugar Option

Two weeks left in May, which means 2 more Strawberry recipes for National Strawberry month! Today's is probably going to be my favorite to share, because oh em, you guys! This Strawberry ice cream will melt in your mouth and be gone all too quickly.

I only had 2 "complaints" and that was that it lacked sugar, because guess what?! Yeah I cut the sugar down for a healthier (no health claims, just less sugar) ice cream option. I found it delightful, and the perfect afternoon refresher. I'm accidentally in love with this ice cream, and kind of sad I made such a small batch. Baby, I surrender to the Strawberry Ice Cream (bonus points if you can name that tune!)

Strawberry Ice Cream

1/2 pint whipping cream
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup sugar

Mix all ingredients together. Add to your ice cream maker, and freeze up. I like ours a bit more frozen, so after the ice cream machine did it's thing, I put it in a bowl, covered with plastic wrap and placed in the freezer overnight. Top with fresh chopped strawberries, and enjoy!

What's your favorite flavor ice cream?
