Why Is It
Friday, July 04, 2014
When I want a particular recipe, I cannot find it? When I don't want that one, yet another one, I can only find the particular recipe I'm looking for NOW?
I want to make peppermint stick ice cream for DGD. The recipe I want calls for 2 cans of evaporated milk. The LAST time I wanted to make this ice cream, all I found were recipes for this very thing: calling for evaporated milk. Only I had too much cream on my hands (and half and half) to do that -- I needed to use up what DH had bought on sale. So THEN every recipe I could find had the evaporated milk in it.
NOW I want the evaporated milk recipe (which I remember from being a child and just loving it to death) and I cannot find it anywhere. I want my DGD to have this pleasure. Since today, as the 4th, is going to be a washout (literally, we are expecting flash floods from all the rain, and all town/city festivities in the area are canceled until tomorrow, when the weather is going to be beautiful), I want to make this ahead of time.
BUT I cannot find it today.
However, DH just got up and explained why he bought all the cherries he did yesterday. He wants CHERRY ice cream. Hooray! Problem solved (until the next time, but I don't have to worry so much about finding the correct recipe!)
