Today is the last day of March Break. The week has flown by. I had not planned anything, but the week happened anyway. Although the week has flown, it was a nice week. I really enjoyed the kids. I find myself already dreading Monday and the structure that it brings.
We are most fortunate to live in a rural area, where many people tap their trees. We were extremely fortunate, because our friend's the Prevost's gave us a container of that sweet Canadian deliciousness. As Lisa handed me that container of liquid gold, my mind swam with possibilities. I could make a maple glaze for that salmon I have in the freezer. I could make scratch waffles (which I did), oh the possibilities were limited only to the size of that container. In the end I made an extremely delicious treat! Maple Milkshakes, the big hit of the week. We made several batches to much applause.
The recipe for this is easy, ice-cream, milk, and maple syrup. The shakes taste all the better with homemade ice-cream, but for the time crunched, store bought is pretty tasty too. I used my old school blender, and put in three hardy sized scoops of ice-cream. I then put in 1/4 of a cup of maple syrup. I then filled the blender with milk. We like slightly thinner shakes, so I used more milk to ice-cream. My mouth is watering just thinking about this.
Good-bye March Break 2013, I feel like I hardly got to know you.
