Well the calendar says it is summer :)  Our weather is so wacky here!  It is warm one day and like yesterday it was cold.  I actually turned on my little space heater while I was working and after work I wore a sweat shirt :(

On Saturday when I made the ice cream it was really warm.  Bill and I worked all day out in our landscaping.  We are re-doing some of our landscaping and landscaping some areas around the new garage we built last year.  So I guess you could say our remodeling has spread to the outdoors

I have more news..... We have 2 new grandpuppies!!!

This is Cally's dog Daisy.  She was adopted from the Humane Society.  Poor Daisy has had a time or maybe I should say poor Cally.  Daisy has had Kennel Cough and stomach issues since Cally brought her home.  We are hoping she is over the hump and will start feeling better soon.

Daisy loves her Papaw!

This is Lucy and she was adopted in Lexington by Billy and Amanda.  Lucy's sisters are in love with her!

So back to this Ice Cream.  Oh My Goodness............... frozen peanut butter fudge is the bomb!
I made Jif's Peanut Butter fudge recipe (click here for the recipe) I liked it but next time I am going to make my Dad's peanut butter fudge recipe.  I used my go to vanilla ice cream base and at the end I sprinkled in some Peanut Butter and Milk Chocolate chips.  I made the ice cream in my Cuisinart Ice Cream maker but you can use any ice cream maker and follow the manufactures directions.

Peanut Butter Fudge Ice Cream

2 cups whipping cream
2 cups half and half
3/4 cup sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla
2 cups peanut butter fudge
1 cup peanut butter and milk chocolate chips (optional)

Mix whipping cream, half and half, sugar and vanilla together and put in refrigerator (or freezer if you are waiting until the last minute to mix together like me :)  and let the mixture get really cold.

When you are ready to make your ice cream, pour the vanilla ice cream base into the ice cream maker and make according to your manufactures directions.

When the ice cream is almost done, sprinkle in the peanut butter fudge and chips.  allow to churn a little longer to mix the goodies into the ice cream (you can also wait until the ice cream is done and then hand stir the goodies into the ice cream)

Pour the ice cream into an air tight container.  I also sprinkled a little bit of the peanut butter fudge and chips on top of my ice cream.

Put the ice cream in the freezer for at least 4 hours or until it is hard and able to be scooped.
