Food Favorites of the Week

I can already tell it's going to be a difficult semester if it's only the second day and when I should be doing homework, I'm blogging, playing with Mia, getting my hair done, being social...pretty much anything else but homework. Oh these next couple months are going to be interesting!

Yep, that's right Eric and I have both started school this week and one of us was more excited to start then the other...wonder who that could be? ;) Regardless for my less then excited attitude to go back to school, my first day of classes wasn't all that bad, except after only being gone for less then 4 hours I had to come home and hold Mia pretty much the rest of the night until she went to bed. I missed that little girl!!!

Anyway, on to the real reason I am posting, I just wanted to share with all of you my new favorite foods for the week! Yes, they are that amazing, worth blogging about.

Food #1) Homemade Soft Served Chocolate Ice Cream

Of Course one of my favorite foods would be something involving chocolate! Anyway, for Father's Day Eric' grandma gave him one of these:

Hamilton Beach Half Pint Soft Serve Ice Cream Maker

We've loved this little ice cream maker. It makes the perfect amount of ice cream for a night treat and it's SO good! Usually we just make the vanilla ice cream and add fresh strawberries, which is also to die for, but yesterday I tried the chocolate ice cream and it was like making Ben and Jerry's at my house and for anyone that knows me, I LOVE Ben and Jerry's! You can buy these half pint ice cream makers at Walmart for $30 and you won't regret it if you do!

Food #2) Baked Zucchini Fries

Two words to describe these... nutritious and delicious! I got this recipe from Our Best Bites for a side dish for a BBQ we had the other night and we loved them so much I'm making them again for dinner. They are crispy and flavorful. We dipped ours in ranch dressing.

Hope I've convinced you to give these favorite foods of mine a try! And please, let me know of any recipes you like, especially that involve garden foods! Eric and I love trying new recipes!


  1. That ice cream WAS really good! It was heavenly. I agree with going back to was hard to go back and leave a baby at home. I hope we make it!

  2. I hope you have a great semester! When do you graduate? Both of those recipes sound yummy. I am asking for an ice cream maker for Christmas! Good luck Hanna!
