This week, I have no recent pictures. But I’ll tell you what I’ve been doing in the kitchen.

Something fixed. The dishwasher. This is an amazing help to me! And the kids like it, too – they’d been washing the mountains of dishes for the months the dishwasher was out of commission. Even though I hadn’t been doing many of the dishes, they were on my mind. The piles of dishes to be washed or dishes to be dried just zapped my mind every time I was in the kitchen, or passed the kitchen, or thought about the kitchen. In other words, practically all the time.

Something I’ve figured out. Don’t be greedy when making ice cream. I was overfilling the ice cream maker every time I made ice cream, and would always wonder why it didn’t freeze fully. Of course, I never questioned my method. I thought the ice cream maker wasn’t that good. For my 2-quart ice cream maker, I’ve started only filling it 2/3 of the way. Now I get a solid soft freeze, rather than a soupy soft freeze. What happens is the frozen tub in which the filling gets churned only has so much freeze to give before it is no longer cold. If there’s too much filling, there’s not enough chilling. ;)

Some things we’ve eaten. Sloppy Joe’s in a Bowl – three times. What can I say? It is really good! Chocolate sourdough cake with basic vanilla frosting (chocolate is pictured). Basic raw soaked granola. Sprouted spelt biscuits. Maple cookies and chocolate pixies, thanks to A..

    I do miss having a dishwasher that we can use. I’m happy for you that yours is now working.
    Did you ever get your kefir ice cream to a place that you were happy with?
    We have Sloppy Joe’s in a Bowl on our menu for this month. I can’t wait!

    I am so happy for you that your dishwasher is fixed! Mine is fixed too, my stepfather took a look at it for me since my hubby and I have had no time with the baby to take it apart and check it with a multimeter. Luckily mine was just a broken fuse, my stepfather went and got the fuse and installed it for me. It is so much easier when you cook a lot to have a working dishwasher!

      Rebecca – yay for you! Glad it was such a simple fix. My husband hadn’t time to look at ours, so we hired someone to fix. A burned out wire needed replaced. I really don’t care how much it costs because it means so much to have it working again.

    Dishwashers are wonderful – especially with this way of cooking (and a large family). I load the dishwasher and still do a couple sinks of pots and pans everyday!
    I will definitely have to try the sloppy joes in a bowl now.
    I did try the vanilla frosting but it didn’t turn out right (I couldn’t find coconut butter and tried to make it…) Try and Try Again is my motto in my kitchen lately!
