Hey moms and grandmas, come on out and play.  It's recess time!

I'm sure glad the calendar says spring is almost here....looking out the window doesn't yield a very convincing view of the subject, LOL.  Snow, snow,  more snow.  Winter is sure hanging on, unlike last year when it was unseasonably warm by this time in the year.  Funny, it seemed like winter didn't want to arrive this year...and now that it finally decided to stop in, we can't get rid of it, LOL.

The kiddos have counseling today but that's the only scheduled activity.  Well, that and maple syrup, of course.  

Good news.  DH got offered the weighmaster position that he interviewed for last week.  He goes in this morning to get oriented and learn exactly what they want of him (hours, wages, "problem" roads and times, etc).  He's anxious to get to work, and I'm sure they're anxious to have him out there patrolling.  Seasonal weight restrictions ("frost laws") have been in place for a couple of weeks now, with no enforcement in the county, so I'm sure the local trucking businesses (construction, etc) have spread the word that they can get away with running full loads without getting caught.  Doesn't take long for that kind of news to spread.  Won't they be surprised when dh shows up on their tail and catches them Cool  I'm happy for him...both the extra money, and the fact that he gets to do a job he never thought he'd do again when he retired from the sheriff's department.

I would be interested in a Vegan version of the ice cream...as I have some lactose issues. I usually just take a pill and eat it anyway. But I have experimented with sorbets, I like. Yet, never found a vegan ice cream I really want to eat yet....whats in your moms recipe?

Heather, she uses one of three things as the smooth base: cashews blended in water, cooked rice blended in water, or cooked potato.  Then she adds fruit juice and fruit blended up.  I don't know exactly how she does maple ice cream, but you can google recipes and find one.  One thing about vegan ice cream, it's not as good the second time around...loses the creamy mouth feel...so you have to eat it all up Laughing  You can put some guar gum powder in it to help it be creamier and smoother, if you want to.
