A Taste of Summertime Heaven

I made dinner for a family from church the other night. I was packaging up the roast beef and trimmings I’d been cooking all day when it suddenly occurred to me — I hadn’t done anything for dessert. In panic mode, I ran through a quick inventory of what was immediately available and what I could come up with, when I spied my full cookie jar. The boys and I had made Whole Wheat Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies the day before. I’d used slivered almonds as the nut and they were beyond wonderful.
I decided to use those with my Smooth & Creamy French Vanilla Bean Ice Cream and make ice cream sandwiches.
I took two cookies of as equal size as I could get and put them both top down.
I put a scoop of ice cream on one of them.
Then used the other for the “top”.
And there it was. A taste of beautiful summertime heaven.
I made several – wrapping them individually in aluminum foil and putting them in the freezer. They were amazing.
I’m so grateful for your visit, today.

Yummy. Do you prepare standard meals for those you take meals to? I have a couple of standbys, but honestly I’d love some new ideas. Something easy to make and take. Maybe you could do a series on that!
I actually tend to keep it super simple. A roast beef or roast chicken, root veggies, green beans or corn, rolls, salad, dessert. Less roast chicken only because people can grab a rotisserie chicken at the store, so I figure they’ve gotten some or will get some during the period of meals being delivered.
That’s a good idea for a series, though! Would definitely be something to do in a Monday Morning Survey – what do you bring or what do you like to have brought – give us all some fresh ideas!
When I first started at your site I read your “Our Diet” section and thought yours would be a blog full of food neither my family nor I would ever eat. I am so pleasantly surprised that you cook wonderful “regular” food that anyone would love. I have also implemented your zone cleaning. I am still working to get more diligent, but at least have a plan now. Whenever I am feeling down I come to this site and always walk away more inspired. THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!
Thank you so much!
This made me smile, because Kaylee – who loves to eat what we eat and is learning how to cook how I cook – is always a little bit apprehensive when a new friend comes over. But, as soon as they enjoy a meal, she relaxes. It’s funny.
You are incredibly encouraging – thank you.
I love that your church sounds so caring – taking meals to other families is such a sweet thing to do!
That doesn’t really happen over here. I am still looking for the church I want to attend but I want that community that goes with it. Not just people who pop in for a couple of hours on a Sunday and nothing else. People who live their faith everyday if that makes sense.
