Food Notes

1. I made chocolate peanut butter ice cream pie for husband's birthday. So Good!

Just mix together 1 carton softened chocolate ice cream, 1/2 carton whipped cream, and two big scoops of peanut butter. While you are waiting for the ice cream to soften, crush half a package of oreos (easy in the food processor) and mix together with a 1/4 cup of melted butter. Press this into a pie plate (or the bottom of a round cake pan). Okay, now mix the ice cream. Then pour into the pie plate and smooth with a spatula. You can drip or shave chocolate on top. Or sprinkle crushed peanuts. People think you are a fabulous cook and ask for seconds, and everyone is happy!

2. Old Orchard's Pineapple Orange juice reminds me so much of Sundays. Growing up, I went to a fancy downtown church that served punch after services. We'd all head to the banquet hall to snack of handfuls of those soft wedding mints, and fountains of pineapple-orange-ginger ale punch. Or maybe the wedding mints were just at the wedding receptions in the same room. Anyway, you drank the punch from a little glass cup with a little glass handle that would only fit a finger or two. I haven't thought about this in Years, and yet tonight here I am, the pineapple-orange taste taking me back.

Its been a good night.
