The girls are addicted to the Food Network. Weird. I know. But fun, too. (I mean, it's much better than Dora.)
So, Friday, they were watching Michael Chiarello...
...make different ice cream treats for his ice cream pool party, and they begged me to help them make two of the recipes he made. The first, was a cantaloupe granita, and the second was a speed scratch neapolitan. The cantaloupe granita turned out perfect, but since no one in the house likes cantaloupe, it flopped. Badly. (I tried to tell them....) The neapolitan, though, was a huge hit.
I thought I'd share. It was so much fun to do with the girls, especially since it was their idea and they were so into it.
I am determined to make this summer a memorable one and try to do several fun projects a week. My plan is to try to do a Friday 'Week in Review' post throughout the summer. We'll see how I do... I've only made it through Monday, and I'm already exhausted.
