Grant William Stoneman

Grant William Stoneman


So proud to make the announcement of the arrival of my
newest grandson, Grant William Stoneman.  

His grand arrival was a few days early, but GW and Momma
Stephanie Stoneman are doing fine.  My son Marc Ryan is the happy pappa.  
 Holland Hospital, Holland, MI  are providing superb accommodations





He was named after my grandfather, Grant William Stoneman (1898-1961) who was a
lifetime resident of Gratiot County, MI.  

This sign was posted at his farm.  


My grandson just aquired a new antique sign for his room.  

And another little treasure from the Pan American Expo that was 
in Buffalo, NY in 1901.   My grandfather would have been just a
few years old when this was acquired

ICE CREAM CAKE!




What a great dessert for a 
Hot Summer Day



This great dessert is so easy to do...but I must advise it is a bit time consuming.  All the steps require returning to the freezer for a complete refreeze before proceeding to the next step.

Ice Cream 'Cake'

Desserts, Ice Cream

15  Oreo Cookies
1 tablespoon cream
9  ice cream sandwiches; or more
1 pint banana ice cream
1 pint vanilla ice cream
1 pint strawberry ice cream
1 1/2 c heavy cream; whipped
1 envelope gelatin; softened in water
  sugar; to taste

Coat bottom and side of a 9-inch round springform pan with nonstick cooking
spray. Line side with waxed paper, using spray to help adhere to pan. Trim
paper to height of pan.

Finely crush 12 Oreo's in a food processor. Add milk; pulse just until
mixture holds together. Set aside.

My tip: Be sure ice cream bars are completely frozen. Do NOT unwrap, but
cut with paper attached. Return to freezer to completely refreeze. This
makes it so much easier to handle the cut bars...but WORK QUICKLY.

Cut each in quarters (cut once horizontally, once vertically). Break apart
and remove paper wrappers. Stack strips of sandwiches on end, packing them
snugly together, around wax-paper-lined pan. Repeat with remaining
sandwiches to form a stand-up edge. Spoon cookie crumbs into center of pan;
press firmly over bottom. Freeze 1 hour.

Remove all 3 flavors of ice cream or frozen yogurt from freezer and let
soften for 15 minutes at room temperature.  Transfer banana ice cream to a
small bowl and stir until good but firm spreading consistency. Return to
freezer for the ice cream layer to refreeze. Repeat with vanilla and
strawberry.

Remove pan from freezer. Spread ice cream on bottom, then top with vanilla
and strawberry, spreading all layers at level. Top with whipped cream,
edging border with star tip. Return to freezer; freeze overnight.

Whip cream until soft peaks form. Add sugar as desired and softened
gelatin. Whip until firm peaks form but do not over beat. Spread over top
and finish edge with whipped cream in a star tip bag.

To serve, remove side of pan, then waxed paper. Cut into wedges.

You can use any flavor of ice cream.  Choose your favorites!!   This would
also be great with Lime, Orange and Pineapple Sherbet.
