No-Churn S'mores Ice Cream 3

Ever stress yourself out so much you teeter on the verge or vomiting or crying? Yea I’m there. Ever since this part-time adjunct teaching opportunity came up I have been freaking out both in excitement and nervousness. The reason it has been such a challenge deciding whether to accept or not is not a matter of wanting the job, it is a matter of feasibility due to being in Memphis while I currently reside in Knoxville.

Pros: Related work experience, extra money (albeit small), keep current part-time job and free rent with parents in Knoxville, stay at a friend’s while in Memphis
Cons: Only one class for 6 hours a week, driving 11 hours a week (hence the income increase being small)

It is also only for 10 weeks which could be either a good thing and a bad thing. Setting the monetary gain aside (since it is basically negligible) it comes down to one question – is it worth driving 11 hours a week to get experience teaching one class? Maybe I should wait until next term to see if they would have more than one class available? Unfortunately this kind of decision cannot be riddled out by making lists or asking others’ opinions, it’s a gamble. Experience is good to snatch up when you can but sanity is also important.

No-Churn S'mores Ice Cream 1

It’s time like these when I look to food for solace, specifically dessert. Enter in this no-churn s’mores ice cream. I thought for certain that upon freezing the marshmallow creme would cause the ice cream to be rock hard. In fact the exact opposite occurred creating the fluffiest and creamiest ice cream I have ever made. To make things even better, it tastes just like a s’more with plenty of milk chocolate and graham cracker bits. Let your worries drift away for a few scoops-time.

gahhh that does sound stressful!!! I’m sure no matter what choice you make things will work out! Fingers crossed for youuuu

—and I think you had the exact right idea with this ice cream: instant perkmeup right there!!!

Elizabeth @ August 24, 2014 - 2:33 am

Oh, that sounds like a tough decision! It’s times like these I wish I could look into the future and see what the right call is–unfortunately, that’s not really a thing… I hope you’re able to figure out what’s best for you! Maybe you should have a second bowl of ice cream to help you work through these tough decisions. :)

Stephanie @ Eat. Drink. Love. August 24, 2014 - 12:40 am

Teaching experience is always a good thing to get, but if it’s too far, I can see how that would be a turn off. I’d much rather eat this ice cream than decide!

Hannah August 23, 2014 - 8:49 pm

Considering your state of mind, I thought for sure you were going to make rocky road ice cream! I’m glad that you didn’t go the obvious route though, since this sounds flat-out amazing. I don’t blame you for seeking comfort in food at such a stressful time, since I would do the same. Hope you find some sort of resolution that’s at least half as satisfying as this treat.

Heather August 23, 2014 - 10:03 am

I’ve never put marshmallow fluff into my ice cream before, I bet it’s amazing. And I love love love fudge coated graham crackers. What a wonderful ice cream mix in!

Terri/LoveandConfections August 23, 2014 - 12:50 am

I did s’mores this week too. Nothing says Summer like some s’more ice cream!

Susan August 22, 2014 - 7:34 pm

I wish you the best in your decision making process – hope you are able to reach a conclusion without having to consume too many gallons of ice cream… :-)

Megan August 22, 2014 - 7:29 pm

Mint chocolate chip!!

Kimberly August 22, 2014 - 6:31 pm

I have a hard time with dairy so I love sorbets and ices. But if I have ice cream I love good old fashioned vanilla!

Hank McKinsey August 22, 2014 - 5:09 pm

So sorry to hear about the job!! Maybe suck down a few of these as comfort food lol I would love to try this and turn it into a milkshake! Great share, thanks Erin :)

Zainab @ Blahnik Baker August 22, 2014 - 10:36 am

Aieee that is hard and can see my this ice cream is necessary! But being in the same field as you, I think having any experience to put you above the pack of recently graduated PhDs will be worthwhile, even it is 11 hours of drive. There is an end in sight. And maybe with this experience, next term you will be front and center for that position of more classes!!

Marion@Life Tastes Good August 22, 2014 - 8:57 am

That is a tough decision – good luck and best wishes!! Thanks for this amazing recipe – s’mores are da bomb and this looks scrumptious!!

Ashley @ Wishes and Dishes August 22, 2014 - 8:02 am

S’mores are my absolute favorite and now I want this for breakfast!

Lauren at Keep It Sweet August 22, 2014 - 7:09 am

I’m sorry you are dealing with so much stress over this job! My opinion is that you can do ANYTHING for a fixed amount of time so even if the job and the driving was pretty bad, there will be an end in sight. I’m sure either decision is a good one and you should trust your gut to decide what is best for you!

At least there is no-churn ice cream to stress eat:-)

spiffycookie August 22, 2014 - 8:51 am

It seems like everyone is telling me to go for it! But I have to admit part of me thinks it’s crazy to even consider it, haha.
