How very unfortunate the Creme de menthe ice cream pie I made looked better than it tasted. Don't you just hate it when you get special ingredients for a special desert and it turns out wrong. The recipe called for 2 TBS. of creme de menthe, I used 1 TBS. and it was way to strong. As in...one bite left you running for water and burned all the hair out of your nose. It was bad. I used Creme de menthe flavoring oil. Do any of you cooks know something different I should have used??? The recipe simply said creme de menthe.
Then we headed outdoors for some croquet. What a beautiful day. Loving the warm weather.
Someone loves to prove he's not getting old.
My cousin Steve and his wife Jane.
Showing the boys the game. Poor Jack has been running a high fever since Tuesday, but was up and around a little bit tonight.
O.k. just so you know this kiss was less than 1 second long. We are not making out. Just to clarify...for Donovan's sake.
And on a side note from another day....Tuesday we were at the school picking up Jack and Isabella and I had to use the bathroom. Which by the way....other question comes to mind what can you do with your little (almost) 4 year old boy when you go into a public restroom and need privacy...any ideas?? So moving forward I finish going to the bathroom and Suzy says, "Potty, Potty" along with her little dance that means...right now! So I quickly jump up and put her on the toilet. The very tall toilet with lots of germs on the seat. So I'm holding on to Suzy because of course she can't touch the floor with her feet and I certainly don't want her holding on to the seat.....and I'm waiting. And waiting. And waiting. So I look around to see if maybe she did go and I didn't hear it. So I look around the side of the my precious little girl and ker-plunk something huge & brown hits the water and then splashes. Splashes pee water into my eye. The eye I can not wipe because I'm holding precious with my 2 hands so she doesn't fall into the toilet that is very contaminated. All in a days work...girls. All in a days work.
