no time to blog

I apologize for being so remiss in my blogging lately. We have a houseful right now, so we have been on the go! So, here are some random things:
- I made more ice cream! I made a batch of vanilla ice cream that contains no eggs and requires no cooking. Less work for me! I also made some peanut butter ice cream:

It also required no cooking! I found the recipe here.It’s super peanut buttery and yummy (if you like peanut butter, anyway).
- My mother-in-law brought me some Japanese gooey treats:

I think she was a little surprised at how excited I was. People, you just don’t know how difficult it is to find these kinds of sweets!
- We took our houseful out along the Columbia River scenic highway today. We decided it’d be a good idea to stop at Bridal Veil Falls and take the 2/3 mile roundtrip walk.

Pretty, isn’t it? The walk wasn’t that far, but it was pretty steep. On the way back to the parking lot, Peter’s dad got so hot from hiking uphill that he took his shirt off. He then tried to dry himself off by standing in front of the automatic dryers in the bathroom.
- Speaking of Peter’s dad, here he is along with Peter after our lunch at Skamania Lodge:

As you can see, he put his shirt back on.
- I hinted at “big news” a while back. I might be able to annouce said news this week.
- The cake we had the other day (the one from Bakery Bar) was poppy seed with citrus curd filling and buttercream frosting. It was delicious, and yes, it was a birthday cake. Thanks for the well wishes!

    ages ago my husband bought me an ice cream maker for Christmas, which was really a very cool gift that unfortunately has sat on top of the refrigerator for too long a time. Your recipes are inspiring me to actually use it and make him realize his gift was appreciated.

    isn’t peter supposed to look a lot younger than him? :) ah ha ha ha ha just getting him back for all the nasty dress comments!

    I’m hoping the big news is what I’m thinking it is.
    Is it? :-)

  5. Glad you like the PB icecream recipe. My husband adapted it from the recipe that came with our icecream machine. I actually don’t like peanut butter, but I do love this icecream. It must be PB texture that I don’t like, because I enjoy PB in many other things like satay sauce, cookies, ice cream, etc.

    What a coincidence! The Mister and I went out to Bridal Veil Sunday. I wanted to climb on the large rock at the base of the falls but was deterred by the steep, silty path.
    What are the origins of Skamania’s town name? I kept imagining ska-punk kids with baggy pants and wallet chains stomping around.
    Happy Belated Birthday!
