Family Tradition - Homemade Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream

Making homemade ice cream is quite a tradition in my DH's family.  I'm so glad he has carried the tradition into my side of the family too.  This is the newest ice cream recipe that we've been experimenting with.  I'd love to hear your favorite ice cream recipes!

6 cups 2% milk 6 cups heavy cream
3 cups sugar
1.5 teaspoons salt
3 teaspoons vanilla extract
2.5 teaspoons peppermint extract
6-8 drops green food coloring (optional)
6oz miniature semisweet chocolate chips

Put all ingredients EXCEPT chocolate chips into a large bowl.Stir until the sugar has dissolved.
Pour the mixture into an ice cream maker.After about 10 minutes into the freezing, add the chocolate chips. When the ice cream maker complete’s its cycle, put the container into the freezer for 2 hours to freeze more solidly.

Here is my review -

The Strength in His Pinky

“The foolishness of God is wiser than man’s wisdom, and the weakness of God is stronger than man’s strength.” 1 Corinthians 1:25
God’s great wisdom and strength reside in me as I abide in Him. My best laid plans pale in comparison to his knowledge and understanding. When I’m at my weakest, the strength in his pinky finger alone can sustain me.That’s good, because sometimes I can be pretty weak.And there are a LOT of times when I don’t have all the answers.PRAISE GOD that he fills me up and works through me!

Chosen, Appointed, Delivered, and Filled

Jeremiah 1:5+“I chose you before I formed you in the womb; I set you apart before you were born. I appointed you a prophet to the nations… Do not be afraid of anyone, for I will be with you to deliver you…I have filled your mouth with my words.”
What a lovely promise. He chose me. He formed me. He set me apart. He appointed me. He is with me. He delivers me. He fills me with his words.And he did all of these things for you too.
What a great scripture for us to cling to for ourselves and our children!
