Kiwi Strawberry Sorbet

This weekend I took it nice and easy. If you count working outside, painting a bedroom and bathroom and moving the girls into one big bedroom. Then it wasn’t sooo relaxing of a weekend. But we had great times with good friends and we are so grateful to be surrounded by such good influences for not only us, but our children as well.

Here’s some interesting tidbits:

William’s Sonoma has once again fallen victim to my spending. This time for this gadget that i had to have.

I am currently baffled as to why the dog keeps licking the refrigerator, walls and cabinets then follows baby around all day.

If my husband needs a fund for my breakage of appliances, than i want a budget for new cookware. Three plates and two bowls have sadly been lost by this week’s tragic events. Baby. She found out that when brother and sister aren’t looking she can snag their plates and throw them to the ground and they make this wonderful crashing noise. It is also funny because immediately following the crashing noise, baby has learned that Mom’s reaction of horror is also funny.

This kiwi strawberry ice cream was also born from one of my ‘saving sprees.” A whole bag of six was only $1! I had to buy it.

Luckily for me I found this great recipe. Just assemble the few ingriedients,

Dump it all into the food processor or blender and mix it for two minutes.

Place it in a freezer safe container and freeze for several hours. the result?

2 cups strawberries, tops cut off and cut into pieces

While mixture is cooling, place the kiwis, strawberries, lime juice and vanilla into the food processor. Pour the liquid mixture in and blend for two minutes.

Pour the mixture into an airtight freezer proof container and freeze for several hours until soft.
