Ice Cream in a bag

We did this the other night for Family Home Evening and to also fill one of Derick's class requirements. I think it turned out pretty good.

You will need two seperate bags for each serving, one for the salt and ice and one for the ingredients.

Ice cream mix:
  • 2 T. Sugar (For Kirk, Derick and I we used Splenda and for some reason the ones with the splenda set up quicker than the regular sugar.)
  • 1 cup half & half
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla
In a seperate bag put 3/4 cup rock salt and some ice. Make sure that your bags are zipped really good and put the ice cream mixture into the salt and ice mixture. Then you just flip your bag around and around until the ice cream mixture is how you like it, anywhere from 10-15 minutes. Wipe off the ice cream bag and then squeeze into a bowl or just eat out of the bag.

This is one of our favorite salads at our house.

  • 2 cans cooked chicken or 2-3 cooked & shredded chicken breast
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • grapes
  • cashews
  • 1 bottle coleslaw dressing or homemade coleslaw dressing

Combine the pasta, pineapple, chicken, salt & pepper, grapes and dressing in a large bowl. Add cashews as you like on your individual servings. Enjoy.
