cake machine

Okay, so the family and I are trying to eat more healthy and plan better snacks and treats. I have been baking much more of our muffins and as soon as I can get a bread machine, I will make alot more of our own breads too. I have always made my own cake and such. Well, anyways, we were talking the other day about how the store bought ice creams have all this "stuff" added to them which makes them not so good for you and have tried several of the no-sugar, nothing but natural ingredients kind, and to say the least, they have all fallen short.

The kids asked if either Stephen or I knew how to make homemade ice cream (they have read online that almost anything that is made from scratch is way better for you). Stephen said no, but I said kinda. I used to watch/help make it as a kid growing up. I told them that I could always get Graw's receipe, but we would have to find an Italian ice cream machine. We could use one of "ours" but that would mean that we would need a transformer and there is no room or nowhere in my kitchen to plug one up.

In the middle of explaining all this to them, Elizabeth says that she likes cake better anyways and we dont have to a machine to make that. All of a sudden Keegan's eyes brighten and she gets this look on her face like she is thinking really hard. The next thing that comes out of her mouth is that we have a cake machine. Everybody suddenly busts out laughing. She takes off in to the kitchen looking for this cake machine. Jeremiah goes after her and asks if she means the oven. She says no and starts looking through all the cabinets.

After a few mins she comes out, Jeremiah and Boo still laughing non stop, and says that she cant find it but she knows its in there. Stephen tells her that there is no such thing as a cake machine, that I make all of our cakes. She thinks on this for a few mins and finally comes to me and says, well mommy I guess you are my cake machine!!
