Recipe of the Week - Coconut Ice Cream

I love to bake so I thought I'd start posting a a recipe each week. Either one that I've recently tried or an old favorite. The recipe I chose for this week is one I discovered last year on one of my favorite recipe web sites - This recipe is easy to make and delicious. A great combination in my book.

Coconut Ice Cream

1 cup milk
1 (15 ounce) can Cream of Coconut (found by the drink mixes)
1 1/2 cups heavy cream
1/2 tsp coconut extract
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cups sweetened flaked coconut (optional)

Combine the milk and cream of coconut in the container of a food processor or blender, and mix thoroughly. Stir in cream, coconut extract and vanilla until blended. Stir in the flaked coconut.

Pour into the container of an ice cream maker, and freeze accordingto the manufacturer's instructions.

Options: 1. Add chopped almonds and mini chocolate chips (like an Almond Joy). 2. Sprinkle with chopped almonds and fudge sauce. 3. Sprinkle with toasted coconut.

Look-A-Like Contest

My sister Lauri entered Bo in a look-a-like contest being conducted by a local Magazine. This is the picture she submitted nominating him as a look-a-like to Prince Harry. Bo was selected as one of the finalists and will be featured in the upcoming September/October issue. Pretty Cool!

And here is a picture of Prince Harry for comparison.

Wants to be like his brothers

This weekend while Zack was in our office on his computer, Winston came in and climbed up on the chair in front of Bo's computer. He then picked up Bo's headphones and put them on and began typing on his keyboard - just like he sees his big brothers do. Zack thought it was so cute and funny. He snapped these photo's of his baby brothers attempt to use the computer.
