Hi folks. As many of you know I had house guests this past week. So I am a bit behind the eight ball on my posts. Hopefully you adore me enough to forgive me. I am trying to catch up so also feel free to forgive the onslaught of posts. I have so much to share though. So pulverize you with posts I must. I shall try to limit to 3 a day until they are caught up. But no promises. I don’t do well with guidelines. I’m a rebel.
So I just got a message from my brother, not the camera forgetting old dude you already know. I have another bro who is a year older than me who lives in town. He’s only a few blocks away. He’s the nice one. If he had a fancy camera he would never forget it like old dude did. So this brother is Ken or as I like to call him Ken-Ben (no idea why) or Mr Magoo (also no idea why). Have you noticed I never actually call anyone by their actual names??? It’s like a sickness. I don’t do it for the blog or security. It’s just what I do. My son is B or Bray, my daughter is mini-me, the warden or munchkin, my husband is hubs or C, even the pets have cute nicknames. Anyhow Mr Magoo messaged me and asked me to stop by. He is cleaning out and organizing him home. He says he’s finally moving in, only he has lived there for 4 years now so it is quite funny. He has some stuff that belonged to my mother he wants to give me. He says he’d rather me have it as I would display it and that is better than it sitting in a box at his place. So I am beyond touched and know today will be an emotional one. For those who don’t know my Mom passed away when I was 15. Very unexpectedly, she had a heart attack in her sleep. She was an incredible woman and not your ordinary Mom. We were all very close to her, she was one of those Moms who hung out with you, hung out and got to know your friends. She was amazing, and we were shattered when we lost her. Miss her every single day. So I know going over and seeing the stuff will send me over the edge today. Especially with Ken who doesn’t talk about it much. So I may go off the grid for a few hours. But I shall return tonight.
I am so behind so let’s all just pretend today is Sunday. So whatever you were doing on Sunday just do it again for me okay. Not too much to ask I think. Just have the whole world step back in time for me as I am late. Seems totally reasonable. Okay go….it’s now Sunday.
“So today is Sunday so I am posting my ICE CREAM SUNDAY links for you lovely folks. I look forward to it every week and enjoy doing it for you. I adore you all so much that I would never be late or fall behind on my posting. That would be wrong and not very pro-blogger of me. So here I am, on time and excited it’s ICE CREAM SUNDAY again. Please enjoy the new recipe, the old recipes, and the links to fellow bloggers.”
*wonders if anyone bought it*
Pistachio Ice Cream:
1 cup whole milk
3/4 cup sugar
Pinch of salt
1 package (99g) jello pistachio pudding, unprepared
2 cups heavy cream
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 cup pistachios, shelled and crushed
MAKE SURE YOUR FREEZER BOWL IS FROZEN BEFORE STARTING THIS!
Put your whole milk, sugar, salt and pistachio pudding granules in a bowl and mix until sugar dissolves.
Add your heavy cream and vanilla, mix lightly.
Cover and set in fridge for 1-2 hours.
Shell and crush or chop you pistachios. Set aside.
Take your mixture out of the fridge and transfer to ice cream maker freezer bowl.
Turn on the ice cream maker and mix for about 15 to 20 minutes. Add your pistachios during the last few minutes.
Serve immediately or stick in the freezer until ready to eat. Just remember if you put it in the freezer it’s always good to take it out about 10 minutes prior to serving.
So to recap my ice cream posts over the summer you should probably pull up a chair, grab a bowl of ice cream and be prepared to be overloaded with ice cream. These are mine. Click the name if you want to head over and see them.

Goodness I make a ton of ice cream. No wonder my a** never gets smaller. Geez, I need an intervention or something. If you guys are gonna hold one can I make a small request, can we have it at Baskin Robins??
Okay on to my fellow bloggers. I have a few links for you but not as many as usual this time around. Simply as I was busy and not blog stalking like I usually do. If you ever want to send me links please feel free. I am human, much to my horror, so I do occasionally miss posts. I love including fellow bloggers in this so never hesitate to promote yourself. I am open to anyone sending me things they would like shared. So this week I am doing it a bit different just to save a bit of time. Some I have the foodbuzzLol. So to those reading please if it directs you to foodbuzz take some time to cruise over to the actual blog and see the recipe there. Maybe stay awhile and poke around. Join foodbuzz too. They rock.
Okay folks, that is it for this Sunday, yes, yes, it is still Sunday. *giggle*
I am off for the afternoon to see what my brother has in store for me. I shall return tonight with another recipe or two. And will blog
stalk visit you all then. Hope you have a fantastic day today, this fine Sunday.
I may be out of town tomorrow. We may take a road trip tomorrow depending on the weather. I shall fill you in later.
Toodles and smoochies. xx
