Well no shopping list today as I am sure that you are all of celebrating the holiday weekend just like we are......Good time to cook great food and visit friends... The flyers did not come yesterday as it was a holiday but I have posted a great ice cream cake... This is the easiet trifle ever ...
24 Ice cream sandwiches
hot fudge topping
crushed almonds (actually, I prefer pecans)
(Try out different toppings, nuts or candies to determine your own favorite variation on this dessert)!
This layered dessert can be assembled in a trifle bowl or a 9x13 dish depending on how you'd like to see it displayed ( I suggest using glass so that you can show off the pretty layers)!
Begin by using the ice cream sandwiches as your first layer. Fit them closely and tight, cut to fit if needed.
Cover that layer with whipped cream and drizzle with caramel topping.
Sprinkle crushed nuts, and then top that with another layer of ice cream sandwiches and whipped cream, only this time drizzle with hot fudge before sprinkling the nuts
Continue to layer in this manner until you run out of room or ingredients!
Put in freezer to set up until ready to slice and serve serve... don't eat too much, it can be addicting ;-)
Well we are just chilling out here ... Deklan is having lunch ,Easton is having his morning nap then we are off to our friends place at Lake Cowichan for a couple of hours this afternoon..It should be nice and warm and we can let the boys have a swim in the lake...Not sure if I will take a dip or not but I will enjoy watching the boys for sure...
Who is Granny?
I'm the incredibly blessed mother and stepmother of 4, "Granny" to 2 Fabulous boys , and wife of "Grumpy." Life at Granny's House is full of laughter, friendship, books, music, lively debate, sports especially hockey and good things to eat. My days are made even more meaningful by having a beautiful home full of love. The purpose of this blog is to make cooking fun and not a chore. So guys and gals cooking is not any one persons job,we all like to eat, so we should all like to cook. Hopefully I can help you achieve that in your home kitchen. The kitchen is more then a room in the home, it is a place to prepare meals, entertain and enjoy each others company. Family time is very important and there is no better place to find out what is happening in your loved ones lives then the kitchen table with plates full of a good HOME COOKED meal.
I've got to say life is pretty good and seems to be getting better with age. For that I want to thank my family and good friends.
