Ice Cream Maker Give Away!

I've been thinking about ice cream lately. I stumbled across this post, and I thought I'd share in case anyone else is thinking similar thoughts.

Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker Give Away

As posted recently, I purchased one. It's super easy to easy, and the result is fantastic. All you need is a little patience, since it does take at least a day from start to finish (mostly chilling time, not actual work). And there's nothing nicer than knowing what you're eating and feeding your family.

Motrin "Phantom Recall"

I haven't been able to find Motrin at any of my usual stores. Finally, I asked the pharmacist at Target, and she said it was recalled, but there's plenty of generic (i.e., ibuprofen).

A quick Google search later yielded McNiel Consumer Healthcare's attempt at a "phantom recall."
"The company at the center of a massive recall of children's Tylenol and other popular over-the-counter products tried to perform a "phantom recall" of defective Motrin by sending contractors around the country to buy up the medicine from stores without alerting regulators or the public, according to the chairman of a Congressional committee investigating the company."
