We've pretty much given up the idea of sitting on our couch lately! We accept that they are pet couches now! Here are Jack and Charlie waiting for Alex to wake up. I woke up way too early again today, a gal can't live on 6 hours sleep - at least this gal can't! I'm so tired, I might need a nap before bedtime. ;)
Chocolate to the rescue!!! :) I try to use my time wisely in the mornings because it's just way too easy to find an inch on the pet couches and watch my British comedies...which is fun, but it makes me lazy first thing in the morning. I decided to start the Chocolate Fudge Swirl Ice Cream!!! I'll post the recipe if it works out!
I could dive right into these bowls and you can bet the spoons are licked clean lol...The left bowl is the soon-to-be ice cream. The right bowl is the fudge sauce. These go into the fridge all day and tonight I'll be making the ice cream. This is the third ice cream I'm making, I still have to post about the Country Peach Ice Cream too.
Tomorrow is Canada Day. It's also Canada's 150th birthday! :) I made these little flags to decorate our dessert for tomorrow. I have a nice day of appetizers planned, a red and white dessert and a red cocktail!! :) I love Canada, I'm so grateful to be living in this beautiful country! :)
Last night's dinner was AMAZING, if I do say so myself! :) I had a bunch of thises and thats in the fridge, so I put together a Goat Cheese and Breaded Shrimp Salad with Toasted Baguette. It was very easy to make and quick too! The baguette is to spread the warm goat cheese on; and those shrimp were so tender and delicious! I wanted to use my own lettuce, but we have a house guest coming and I want to save it for those Cobb salads I'm planning for that dinner. I added some of the garden peas to the little salad too and ME, the PEA-HATER, loved them! They tasted more like green beans to me, I'm pretty thrilled!
Wishing all of you Canadians out there a very Happy Canada Day! And SUNSHINE.
