"Oscar" (who's given name starts with C)
First. A moment of silence for the beloved, dearly departed Lickety Split. Apparently he churned his last batch last week. This delicious Salted Butter Caramel ice cream. He was making some bad sounds last week.
Yesterday, with my dad's birthday cake on the line and the ice cream custard chilled in the fridge I pulled him out, said a little prayer, plugged him in and....nothing. So sad.
I thought the spirits might want my dad to have his banana split ice cream cake so I sprinted to the Thrift Store where the Lickety Split was uncovered in 2009 and, for $3, found this:
and proceeded to make the menfolk churn their own dang ice cream. Mr. H has plans to hook this baby up to an electric drill to save our arms.... By the time we got that churned it was too late for the ice cream cake to freeze up solid so I'll report back later on the cake. The more I think about it the more it sounds disgusting. We'll see.
