Homemade ice cream

Last evening we had a little birthday celebration for my mom at my sister Jodie's house. It was just 'us'. As always, we cackled and carried on, nearly making mom's beverage come out her nose-several times!

We had quite the little spread-pizza, wings, homemade ice cream with homemade fudge sauce and strawberries, angelfood cake, and little cheesecakes. Thanks Jodie for hosting and doing all that work!

Here's the recipe for homemade ice cream that our family has used since I was little (and that's a long time!). It's easy and yummy.

Homemade Ice Cream

2 regular sized boxes of instant vanilla pudding
2 cups sugar (this could be cut down if you desired, I think-it's plenty sweet)
2 Tablespoons vanilla
2 cans evaporated milk
half gallon of whole milk

We used a 4 quart ice cream freezer.

Mix all together-pour in ice cream freezer container, do your thang with ice and rock salt and in about 30 minutes or so-enjoy your homemade ice cream!!! You're welcome.☺
