Violet is sleeping, Kevin is at the gym, and I am writing about ice cream. Oh, and eating it. Healthy me!
Anyway, this is a bit overdue but clearly a must post because I got emailed two separate links the same day on the subject: ice cream bread!
Say what? Yes, apparently the rage is to mix equal parts of ice cream and self rising flour and you get an ugly-but-yummy bread. Who knew?
First, the lovely Marsha of First Things First sent me a link from Instructables: Ice Cream Bread -- Ka-POW! (I just love the name). Apparently this was part of the bread contest that Instructables is having. I wonder if I can still vote. This one has my vote! Darn, it's too late, but Phyllo, good luck! I'm rooting for you!

Then my lovely husband who seems to spend his day surfing the web (just kidding, Company-that-husband-works-for!) found a link and sent it to me later in the day. Oh, it seems to be a link to the same recipe but Kevin sent me the link as it appeared on Boing Boing and they aptly called it "Fugly Bread." It's true. It's not gorgeous looking, but it does have potential to be yummy!
I'm going to try it in the next couple of weeks. Boing Boing suggests it's probably more like a cake than a bread. To me it looks like scones. Ok, wait, actually, on first glance it looks like fried chicken! All the same, my wheels are turning and I just need the ingredients and the time.
