Farmer’s Birthday

We celebrated the farmer’s birthday this past weekend.  I decided we would prepare some things that we don’t normally do around our home.  Seafood isn’t fixed very often, I don’t care for the smell or taste, but my family loves it. The kiddos and his parents came over and we ate and celebrated his life!

Our menu was as follows, the words with lines under them are links to what recipes we used.

Salmon


Tilapia

Shrimp

Potato Salad

Corn Casserole with Peppers 
(The Pioneer Woman cookbook, Food from my Frontier)

Dessert was, of course a homemade cake from scratch by his Mother.  My farmer LOVES homemade ice cream, another thing I am not too big on.  But it is made often in our family as it’s a tradition of sorts.  

All the food was very good.  We would recommend all the recipes!

Here is the recipe we use.  Do you have a favorite homemade ice cream recipe you would like to share?  How about a cake? 

Country Style Vanilla Ice Cream

4 Eggs
5 Cups Milk (approximately)
2 Tbls. Vanilla
2 1/2 Cups Sugar
4 Cups Whipping cream
1/4 tsp. Salt

Directions:

in a large mixing bowl, beat eggs until foamy. Gradually add sugar; beat until thickened.  Add cream, vanilla, and salt, mix thoroughly.

Pour into freezer can. Add milk to fill line on can and stir well. Freeze as directed. Makes approximately 4 quarts.



Thanks for stopping by!
