I can’t remember if I ever tried this with my kids, but I think I’m going to.
3 cups milk
1 cup sugar
1 package unsweetened, powdered, orange-flavored drink mix
Mix all ingredients until dissolved and well mixed. Pour into a shallow pan and place in freezer. After about one hour, stir. Stir again after another hour. Freeze until solid. Makes about 3 cups of orange sherbet (or whatever flavor you use).
(Hmmm… I always thought it was called sherbert. Guess I’ve been pronouncing it wrong all these years!)
I discovered my mispronounciation when I looked up this recipe at the Food Network. I found a really yummy looking Red Raspberry Sherbet that’s probaby lower in calories than the orange one I listed above. And I just happen to have some raspberries in my freezer!
It’s barely the end of July and already I’m getting things ready for the upcoming school year. Normally I would wait another couple weeks before doing my last-minute prep, but school is right around the corner… literally! The public schools in my community are resuming on August 9th! That’s just 3 weeks away… since my oldest attends the local tech school for programming classes, we usually follow the public school schedule.
I spent time back in May planning for this coming year, and today was the semi-annual teacher’s sale at Mardel’s. I purchased two Milliken books: The Middle Ages
and The Renaissance, both from the History of Civilization series.
Now I need to clean off my desk, and get last year’s papers filed away so I can start fresh. And I ONLY have 3 weeks!! Where did the summer go?!
