Day 49 - Ice Cream with Smush Ins

Can you believe it? Today is day 49. Sophie or I have cooked everyday for 49 days! Only about 130 days to go to get to our 6 month goal. I feel this is pretty intense and awesome. I'm very proud of myself, and of Sophie.

Sometimes it's been a hassle because of our schedules, but most of the time it's good. I've tried so many new things.

I'm so glad I'm doing this cooking challenge, even if I challenged myself.

Today was one of those busy days. Older brothers are at the football game (they're in band) 2 hours away. Sophie went to a friends. There was school, art club, and doctor's appointments. So I went easy tonight. We made an interesting recipe called Smush Ins. The reason behind the name is that you just take ice cream and just smush in whatever you want.

It's basically really easy. I hadn't ever thought of doing this, but it is quite ingenious. It definitely reminds me of a place called Cold Stone Creamery, but way cheaper for my parents.

I did vanilla ice cream with rainbow sprinkles. I'm a simple kind of guy. It was delicious.

My dad did chocolate ice cream with nuts, chocolate chips, and peanut butter.

Next time he said he's adding a banana.

My mom didn't really want any. She's not an ice cream lover. Crazy, right? She ate one of the cookies from yesterday.

I say you can't fully experience life until you've tried Smush Ins. So, go on, get cracking!



  1. I'm super proud of you and Sophie! I can't even write every night, much less cook from scratch every night. Even if it's smushed up ice cream. It's amazing that you two have done this. I can't express how impressed I am with your ambition.

  2. This is definitely less expensive then Stone Cold Creamery.

    Congrats on preparing good meals. Looking forward to the next 130 days.

  3. Oh, what fun, and so yummy! Congrats on 49 days--that's awesome!
