Feb/March Misc.

(Jan) Chuck and I are parked in Gila Bend tonight at the Elks Club.  I am flying out of Phoenix tomorrow and this gets us a little closer to the airport with a safe place to leave our motorhome. My brothers, sister and I are going to visit my parents at their Assisted Living Facility. It will be good to be together as a family again, however, I am sad to leave Chuck here.

The past 3 weeks we have stayed at Ogilby Road, 4 nights at Sidewinder and the past 5 nights on a lot on 53rd Street in the Yuma Foothills. We’ve enjoyed visiting lots of wonderful Boomer friends and getting to be with Chuck’s mom.

Bernita Poutney and I, with Judy and Ron, making homemade ice cream in 2 zip lock bags.  It was delicious! Recipe follows.

Thanks, Ron and Bernita for sharing this treat with us! In 1qt. Ziplock freezer bag, put: 1cup Half & Half, 3 Tablespoons sugar,¼ tsp vanilla. Burp the bag and seal tightly.  Next; In a One Gallon Ziploc bag, Put: 3+ cups  of ice cubes, ¾ cup rock salt. Put the 1qt bag inside 1gal bag, burp and seal. Roll bag up in a large towel to insulate it and keep your hands from freezing. Knead bags gently about 8-12 min until you have hard ice cream. Note: Be careful when kneading bags so you don’t cause them to rupture or leak. Be careful not to contaminate ice cream when opening small bag as it will be covered in salty water.
