Now THIS is Summer

Family Fun Magazine awarded this their "Most Active Recipe."  I'd also add: fun, fast, easy, silly, exciting, very little clean-up, and YUMMY.

Combine 2 Tbsp sugar, 1/2 tsp vanilla and 1 cup half and half in pint-size ziplock bag and seal it tightly.
Place 1/2 cup coarse salt (table salt worked fine) in a gallon-size ziplock, then fill it halfway with ice cubes. 
Place smaller bag inside as well, and seal.
Shake the bags until the ice cream mixture hardens, about 5 minutes.

Did it work?!
Because I have my spoon, and I'm ready.

Check out the science behind it
We saved ourselves the trouble of washing dishes and ate right out of the bags.  We're doing it again tomorrow.
