|chocolate and vanilla ice cream sandwich|
|this can be cooked ahead of time|
Dessert first, of course:
This idea came from Diane who told me how she made ice cream sandwiches with graham crackers. I found chocolate wafers on sale last week so I substituted and they work great too. I also melted a little milk chocolate and spread some on the wafers before adding the ice cream. I wrap them individually and they are ready in the freezer to grab for dessert.
My supper idea is my own concoction and I love it, if I do say so myself! You simply make a tossed salad and add cooked tortellini. I also add grated cheese and crumbled bacon if I have it on hand. I buy this fresh pasta at my local grocery store and it only takes a few minutes to cook. You can put whatever dressing on it that you like but I prefer a creamy one. My husband's idea of supper is meat and potatoes and he is happy with this "full meal deal" so be daring and give it a try.
GRATEFUL TODAY FOR:
62. Lots of sunshine and two loads of laundry blowing dry on my clothesline.
63. A dozen eggs from my neighbor and a batch of Five Rose cookies made with the fresh eggs.
