Wifia lunch

Laura and I hosted the lunch here today. We decided to make a fun dessert, and then have everyone make appetizers to bring. The food was all sooo good, and went together really well! Tiffany brought a super good cucumber dip with veggies and chips, Wendi brought fruit, Jodi brough mini quiches and sausage biscuits, Sarah brought fresh bread and dipping oil, Andrea made a great artichoke and chile dip, and Laura and I made a cheesy pesto pizza. We all had a really great time!

Mmmmm..

The other night, Laura and I poured over food magazines for Quite some time, trying to decide what to make for dessert for today. Laura found this ice cream cake, and we decided to give it a try.

It's actually super easy. Get 12 ice cream sandwiches, lay four of them on a piece of foil, then cover that layer with chocolate spray whipped cream, top with chopped Reese's peanut butter cups (or any type of chocolate bar bits), repeat these layers twice, and then cover the whole thing with cool whip. Wrap the foil up around it and put it in the freezer for several hours. Let it sit at room temperature for 15 minutes before serving.

The finished product - it got pretty rave reviews =)

Keenan's "box house" was a big hit with the boys today....
