Yesterday the theme was strawberries. Seemed everywhere I looked there was a photo or a recipe or a song playing. I did’nt have anything planned and so I asked my daughter if she’d like to come over for lunch. Just happened that my son in law was at a fantasy football party and so she agreed. My mom was so surprized when she found a full house after Sunday Mass. Love when that happens.
Vera told me not to make a fuss, we can call out for Chinese food. So, I ran to the market and got some things to pick on and dessert. I called my sister Marianne and my niece Sandra to join us. My sister came over but Sandra was working. After we finished eating I took the kids and Miss Penny out on the stoop for a while. It was pretty hot out there, but the kids get antsy in the house. The kids love Miss Penny and she likes them, though they can drive her pretty crazy. So I really have to watch her when they are around. Next thing (most important) in order is dessert!!! Ice cream, pound cake and strawberries, something I know the kids would help make. So while the ice cream was softening, my little chefs handed me strawberries to cut up, and they thought I did’nt see them pop a few in their mouth.
Natalie and Liam got a kick when I told them that their mom used to help me make this when she was a little girl. This is a long time favorite dessert around here. So easy and so good. a real crowd pleaser :)
