Everything is prepped:

I used some of my duck eggs and used coconut extract instead of vanilla (don't have either vanilla beans or vanilla extract at the house in the City--I know exactly where the vanilla beans are, and they aren't here), soooo since I used coconut extract, I used about 1/2 c coconut milk (I added that when I added the 35% cream). And, since I didn't have fresh lemon juice, I used lime. The "slurry" tastes really nice. I used ATK's trick--I put it in a cake pan to cool and put 1 c in the freezer to freeze. I'm about to check the temp of the stuff in the fridge now--40F and we'll be good to go.

Eek! It's pretty toasty here too. How about a glass of icy cold
sky blue jello while you're waiting.

We had to run errands in Dubuque, so went out for lunch. So tonight's dinner is catch-as-catch can; mostly leftovers.
