I Have Alzheimer’s or Another Dementia
Ice Cream Bread-I Dare You to make it.
As some of you know — besides my being a transexual woman — I attend a place called the ARK. The ARK is a daycare center for folks who have Alzheimer's.
In one of our discussions one gal came up with a recipe which is totally different. It is called "Ice Cream Bread". So for you gentle reader, here is how you make it:
1 pt (2 cups) ice cream softened. Do not use low fat.
1-1/2 c. self-rising flour
stir togther ice cream with the flour, stirring just until moistened. Spoon batter into a greased and floured 8 x 4 inch loaf pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 40 to 45 minutes or until a wooden tooth pick inserted in the center of the bread comes out clean. Remove from pan and cool on a wire rack. Leftovers are wonderful toasted with butter and jam for breakfast. Enjoy!
I would be much interested in what you think of this unusual recipe! Sort of goes along with my dementia... Strange!
If you chicken out...well just eat the ice cream! ))
Kaye, welcome to our message boards, our online community! I believe you will find many supportive people here.
Guess I'll have to pass on the ice cream Too many stomach issues right now and I stay away from dairy as much as possible. If someone tries it, I will be happy to live vicariously through them and see if that works!
Geegee, What are you doing up at 5:32AM in the morning? Of course the same could be asked of me as I am not an early bird. The truth be known I like 10;30AM or better yet 11AM would suit me just fine.
I gotta tell you though, I did get up at 7:30 AM this Sunday morning. ( Don't ask me why, but I did. I use to have trouble sleeping at night. My spouse Lisa told the doctor and, yep, he gave me sleeping pills to go along with a whole Pharmaceutics worth of other drugs that had been added over a period of time. Now Lisa and I are disabled...some say I have been since birth, but that is a whole different story for another day. My Lisa has Ulcerative colitis, and of course I have early stage Alzhiemer's. I tell you this because we fall into the what's called "Donut" hole with all the cost of our happy pills. Now I like donuts, but why do the happy pill people call it a donut hole? Why not call it you maxed out your insurance hole or some other term like that? I don't know and beside thinking about it gives me a headache. Maybe I should add a pill for that too.
Well getting back to the beginning of this diatribe, The good doctor gave me sleeping pills. So being the obedient (Not) person that I am I take them along with all of the other rainbow colors of pills I usually take. The net result is I fall asleep about 10:30 or so sitting on the couch watch the boob tube. Now before you get any wrong Ideas, that is the TV. Not boobs. I'd stay awake for that! Some times I wake up at 2 or so in the morning and go crashing down the hall to bed. The other day, I forgot my PJ's so I didn't need to get dressed in the morning which to my way of thinking was neat. I didn't have to figure out what I need to wear. Well anyway back to the sleeping pills. those pils are so strong as I noted that a whole band coud be playing in my room and I would not know it. In fact the guy with the big tuba could be blowing it with my head inside and that would not wake me up.
So now, I have a delemia. Why am I up so early in the night today? it's only 7:30 AM. Maybe I go make some ice cream bread and eat all and be happy?
OK...I get it. 3 have excuses but about 76 read my Ice Cream Bread recipe. How come? Yup, I know why. you think I am pulling your leg...left or right, your choice.
I'll let you in on a little secret. Shhh, don't tell anyone, but the recipe is real and makes great bread. lol Pastor Kaye
Aw Kaye...here's the deal. Around here, the ice cream doesn't last long enough to make the bread. If it's brought into the house, mom, hub and I attack immediately. I guess the answer may be to buy LOTS MORE ice cream??? Hmm...
OK Iris, Your excused Maybe for a special treat or reward?...Just saying.
