Ice Cream Winners :)

We've been working hard on our homemade ice cream recipe to enter into the Ice Cream contest at our school this year. And it all paid off...we took home first place last night with our Blueberry Cheesecake Ice fact I had a wife ask if she could pay me for the recipe because her husband had declared his new favorite thing!

So here it is

1 block of cream cheese-whip until smooth
Add 2 tsps of GOOD vanilla ( i used the stuff we got in Cozumel)
Add 1 can of sweetened condensed milk ...Whip it all up again
Add in 2 cups of heavy whipping cream (nope, this is not a skinny version:)
Add in 1 tbsp of lemon juice
Whip it until its pretty thick
(this is cheesecake layer)

Put 1 cup of blueberries on the stove with 1 tbsp of stevia and 1/2 cup water. Cook until berries have popped and its a thick, syrup like. I used a potato masher to smush the berries.

Now in a large casserole dish put 1/2 of cheesecake mixture in bottom. Layer cool whip ( i did use the reduced fat cool whip but at this point whose counting calories?) on top. Layer 1/2 blueberry syrup. Repeat...make sure blueberry syrup is last layer for visual effects. Take a knife and swirl top layer.

Freeze for at least 5 hours....AND EAT..It SOOO super rich and so STINKING GOOD!!!

What did we win? A $50 giftcard to our schools uniform store....we are gonna save that for Christmas when Goober has worn out all his chapel pants knees and has no toe left in his shoes :).

More pictures from our summer.....

My mom's parents eating with the littles at the beach house. I'm pretty sure they were both conning the adults out of their food.
Later on that night we all went crabbing. This picture is definitely not my best but I think its funny because Goober is obviously pouting. I wouldn't let him ride in the back of the truck, down the highway, with the adults :). What an awful momma!
Crabbing with Cousin Mason, Uncle Paul, Daddy, Uncle Chris, Captain, CC and momma...I think he caught 3 or 4 that night.
How we spent the 4th....Momma reading from the side of the pool...HALLELUJAH!!
Grandparents playing with the babies in the pool.

Soaking in all that attention!
Attacking others with water guns.
