39 weeks--where's the ice cream?

Tried a new homemade ice cream recipe for Father's Day.

Homemade ice cream.....GOOD.
Homemade peanut butter.....GOOD.
Chunks of Reese's peanut butter cups.....GOOD.

You can find the recipe here. I doubled the batch and added more milk--almost to the freezer's fill line. dad must have wanted a new outfit for Father's Day. He chose a hospital gown. He's in the hospital recovering from a ruptured appendix and resultant surgery. Just got off the phone with him to tell him that he absolutely must get up and walk around today. He was a little worried about exposing his hind end.

Sweet corn day is scheduled for Wednesday. So now we get to *anticipate* for two whole days prior. Lots of sticky, hot work. Loads of corn in the freezer.

1 week and 1 day away from my due date. Absolutely cannot have the baby this week. Am much too busy.

Sorry Joyce, couldn't help grinning widely at your last comment. Of course baby will want to come this week. I would be very aware of corn day, as babies have a way of coming at the most "inconvenient" times. :) Rosanna

Just think, if baby comes this week, you won't have to help with the corn. :)

Ha, I was going to agree with Sherri -- have the baby a little early and everyone else will have to do the corn for you!

I 3rd it.....push that baby out and skip corn day. What would be more fun than holding that little bundle in your arms. What a great excuse to skip doing the corn, and still reap the benefits of corn in the freezer. Because everyone will certainly see it as a good excuse and do the corn for you.

Can't wait to see that little baby. I had no idea you were so close to your due date. Were you early with the other 2?

How about a picture of your cute baby belly?
