traveling, wifi issues, and ice cream

We have been traveling again.  My Beloved is taking a bladesmithing workshop for two weeks at Haywood Community College.  It is in North Carolina and this part of the country seems to appreciate their handcrafts.  There is at least two programs I would like to take here.  

I have to admit that I have been enjoying autumn.  We just do not get it at home.

And then there is Haywood Community College campus.  There is a horticulture program here that maintains the campus.  There is also a program that is about low impact conservation.  It is beautiful.


I walked for about a mile on campus just taking pictures.  Those above are just a few.  The grist mill was built by students.  And we will not even talk about how many pictures I took of autumn color and the campus.  I do not think you wish to look at hundreds of pictures.

Yesterday, I was going to post some of these pictures but I had a hard time with wifi.  I was at a public library and it was just not working to get here.  But the community college library's wifi works well.  So now I know where I be working in the mornings.  I may do some more walking.  

I have done some cooking.  Shauna of Gluten Free Girl and the Chef just posted that she can no longer eat eggs.  I was reading the comments with the post and noticed that one lady posted a very simple ice cream recipe that she said her grandmother used to make.  Since I can be sensitive to eggs, I decided to give it a try.  Especially since it is not a custard base so it works well for traveling.  The funny thing is, that I think it is as good if not better then ice cream made with eggs!

Vanilla Ice Cream

1 (14 ounce?) can condensed milk

500 ml heavy cream

2 teaspoons vanilla

Mix all the ingredients in a large bowl.  Freeze as ice cream in your favorite method.  I put it in a large pyrex and stir every couple hours until frozen.

And you have pure simple elegance.  I made a simple hot fudge to go on top just because.  Heaven!

And this last picture is just because!

If I get distracted by autumn and do not post as much as usual, I hope you understand!
