Ice Cream & Fish

August 11, 2009



And my 51st blog entry!! It’s taken a while to get here, but I’ve made it halfway to 100 posts! Since I don’t post everyday it’s taken 10 months to get this far haha. But there’s more to come =)

So this post is about a few random things I’ve done over the past week. Ice Cream & Fish. Yes that’s right. Not together I should add. This last week I went to Victoria, on Vancouver Island to visit some friends and go up to Port Alberni to a friends cabin to do some fishing!! I had never really been before so I was looking forward to it. A couple days before we left my friend Justine and I ventured to Wal-Mart for a random shopping spree. We found a 20$ ice cream maker that we just had to buy! And now that I’m home I really want to go out and buy one myself!! (although I probably shouldn’t.. haha.)

So I don’t have a recipe for this post, well unless you own an ice cream maker and you wanted to make Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream, like we did. Man, was it good!

Here are a few pics of the ice cream, my first catch!! A 21 pounder! And, cooking in a little floating cabin without electricity, a fridge, or warm water. However, we did eat pretty good! We caught a sockeye for dinner, some crab, fresh oysters and I even brought along my crepe pan for breakfast!

Yes – I brought a crepe pan to the cabin! It was worth it!
