Check out BigBoy and VolleyGirl in their Easter frocks yesterday before headed out to church services. We went to SuperSpouse's parents's home for lunch and watch the little ones hunt eggs. They don't get to see them often enough, so these get togethers are a great blessing. Quite chilly outside yesterday, must be that global warming...it was a beautiful day anyhow. BigBoy got his ears lowered quite a bit over the Spring Break but I like it. It was a purely volunteer choice on his part. Countdown until summer vacation has officially begun around here for these two. 45 days or less for BigBoy, depending on his test schedule. VolleyGirl, not quite as lucky, still has right at two months. Time should fly with all the volleyball left.
The ice cream dessert was a hit at our Easter Dinner yesterday and I would highly recommend it. The only change I would make next time around would be to use Starbucks Java Chip ice cream in the middle instead of plain coffee to add a little more oomph in the middle! Also, it was very messy taking it out of the springform pan at my in-laws and very difficult to cut. BigBoy did the job, but bent the serving utensil before switching to a knife. Later, at home, after it being in the freezer awhile, I took it out, sliced it in serving pieces and put it in a container and returned to freezer. This made it very easy to get out a piece. In conclusion: Freeze it, slice it up into serving pieces, when easy enough, store in a container. That would have been much easier yesterday.....but it was still enjoyed!
