Milky Way Ice Cream

If you're looking for an ice cream recipe that is a little different, you have come to the right place.
To make Milky Way Ice Cream, you will need:
6 Milky Way candy bars
1 can Eagle Brand milk
6 eggs
1/2 teaspoon sugar
enough milk to fill a 1/2 gallon freezer

Chop up the candy bars and melt them over low heat with some of the milk.

I don't usually melt the candy bars completely.  I like the small pieces of chocolate in my ice cream.

Add other ingredients and mix with a mixer.

It is better to eat the ice cream before it melts.  I didn't quite get to mine in time.
Melted or not it is still good.

I Saw God Today

My husband and I set off for a short 4-wheeler ride around the Big Woods today.
I decided to grab my camera...just in case there might be something worth taking a picture of.

You know...something like a random wildflower or the occasional pretty weed.

And then we came upon this...a random patch of wild flowers.  These flowers were growing in a part of our field that is usually kept clipped with a bushhog.

But...because of a recent storm and a tree that had fallen, my husband could not bushhog this spot because there were limbs in the way.

Isn't this beautiful...

I love the way sometimes, the camera allows you to see what the eyes may have missed.

And the closer you get, the more beautiful nature becomes.

See the bee???

Milk Chocolate Chip Pecan Pie

Today has been a pie making day.
I decided to make pie crusts with a new recipe I have been using from Paula Deen.  The recipe makes 3 pie, the next thing you know...I had made 3 pies.

I want to share first the recipe for this milk chocolate chip pecan pie.  It was a hit with my entire family.  This was the first time I had ever made this pie, and I am sure I will make it again.

You will need:
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup self rising flour
2 eggs
1 stick margarine or butter, melted
1 cup milk chocolate chips
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup chopped pecans

Mix sugar and flour together.
Slightly beat eggs.

Add eggs, vanilla, and melted margarine.
Mix well.

Now add the milk chocolate chips...try not to eat any.

Add the pecans...try not to eat any.

Pour into unbaked pie shell. 
It already looks good.

Bake for 35 minutes at 350 degrees.

Teen Bedroom

The final addition to the new teen bedroom redo...
My daughter's friend spotted this flower decoration at a Kirkland's.  She recognized that it would match my daughter's comforter...and match it did.
Just the perfect thing to bring this bedroom redo to a close.
