Making the most of what I've got!

This past Saturday evening was our ward's Ice Cream Social.

I LOVE ME SOME ICE CREAM, especially homemade.

One of the directors called to see if I could bring some. She said "homemade is preferrable, but whatever". Since I don't have an ice cream maker, and forgot to borrow one from my parents, I did the next best thing.

YUM !!


--Buy the best vanilla ice cream out there
--Add some milk for Dairy Queen Blizzard-like texture
-- Dice strawberries, add to mixture
-- Finish off with crushed Oreos
-- Mix well

This, now favorite, combination was introduced to me by the lovely Jillian, my sis.
Thanks Jill -- not only for the PARTY IN MY MOUTH!!........ but also for this:

That's right!!! The ice cream social wasn't just a social, it was a contest -- which I was not told about. I didn't say anything when we showed up because I thought, "There's NO WAY, with eleven other homemade ice creams on the table, that I will win something."

Turns out I was wrong. Strawberries and Oreos is a beloved combo for many (including the Stake President) who would have been too nervous to try it on their own.

P.S. -- I tried to give back the prize (Baskin Robbins certificates) but it was a four-way tie for third place, so I was told to go ahead and keep it. Some were impressed that I even concocted an offering semi-homemade without an ice cream maker.

Others just whispered "cheater" when I walked by.... for the rest of the night.

"Now we know how to win next year!", one voice said.
