#19 – Make Ice Cream from scratch

ice cream

As summer in Sydney draws to a close, I set out to make an ice cream that would keep the dream of summer nights alive through autumn and into winter (who are we kidding, this ice cream won’t last longer than a week in my house!). I used a recipe from Cook Republic for no churn condensed milk and jam ice cream which is perfect if you’re making ice cream for the first time and haven’t got the professional equipment and/or an ice cream maker. The beauty of this recipe is that you can substitute the strawberry jam for any other jam or flavouring you prefer (I’m thinking of trying nutella next time) and it literally took 10 minutes to put everything together.

Have you ever tried to make ice cream from scratch? If not, I challenge you to give this easy recipe a go!

I went to my first Zumba class on Saturday and it was so much fun! Zumba is an excellent workout for cardio, toning and burning calories all at once.

Just try and keep me away now!

#16 – Eat at a Michelin-rated restaurant

Hong Kong was the perfect place to cross this item off my list!

There are 61 restaurants in Hong Kong which have been given a 1, 2 or 3 star michelin rating, so I knew I had to visit at least one or two during our time there.

#25 – 40 Documentaries to Watch

I had previously shafted documentaries into the ‘that’s boring change the channel’ category. However, my good friend Demitri opened my eyes to a different world of documentaries. A world different to that of the David Attenborough and Discovery Channel standard (not that they’re not good, they just don’t interest me as much as other topics). He would often come to work, telling me about an awesome doco he had seen the previous night (‘Jiro Dreams of Sushi’ is one that specifically comes to mind). So I started creating my own list of documentaries that I wanted to watch, based mostly on recommendations from other people, and various blogs. This list has now grown to 40 docos…and so far I’ve only seen 2 of them!! For SHAME! Hence, why #25 is an important one for me to accomplish.
