Hello all, happy to be back this week to report on these super-easy to make but delicious treats!
The truth is that I didn’t want to like them. I justified my position by thinking along the lines of these being too sugary, too eggy, too creamy, just too much. It doesn’t help that I’ve been on a clean food drive. We have always eaten remarkably well here but as of lately I’ve gotten myself deeply immersed in this book with the expected consequence of becoming more reluctanct to indulge in too many treats too often. This is my way of saying that as much as I love the word of food and all it encompasses I also value our health and wellbeing. I guess balance is key and it’s not easy….
Well, good intentions aside, I have nieces and nephews I love to feed. In fact, the youngest one usually skips the obligatory salutations and outright asks me if I’ve made any dessert for dinner. Well, since making these sandwiches a couple of weeks ago, my little nephew’s greeting has changed to a sheepish “Milly, have you brought those ice cream sandwiches again?” I guess that says it all. Even adults loved them. Not naming names but I saw some adults forcing bites off the kids’ sandwiches after they’ve finished their own. Poor children. Sorry, kids. Adults are terrible people. In their defence, it was the sandwiches’ fault. They were terribly moreish.
Only two photos this time, the ones that matter. Didn’t think of taking photos during the process. Maybe I was in denial? The third photo is for free. May I introduce Eli, the rooster. He’s been knocking on my kitchen window every night to let me know he’s ready for bedtime. We aren’t allowed roosters in this area but we’ve put a rooster collar on him to muffle his crowing (and we’ve told our neighbours about him). We also put him in a special box in the guest bedroom where he happily sleeps and doesn’t start crowing until 7 or 8am. If he were to sleep with the other chooks he’d gladly wake the whole neighbourhood at 3am. He is well-meaning but doesn’t understand that timing is everything. We love him, though. Eli is very affectionate and tends to fall asleep in one’s arms. Oh, the things one does for animals…
On that happy note, see you next week with a cheesecake! Have yourselves a lovely week!
