I actually have some wonderful tips planned that will take me through the summer...I think. I am just so busy! I started this blog last July and of course, summer is always busy. But with a house you are trying to fix up and completely move into seems more time consuming! Plus, so much of my personal stuff is still in boxes.
And now there are swim lessons and bible studies and planning birthday parties ( I went a little nuts planning the girls party last year...they have birthdays 2 weeks apart) so my days have been full!
So will you still stick with me while I iron out the details of my life? I truly am NOT tipless. Just timeless. I was attempting to be cute there but it fell flat. But you get me.
I hope to be back next week with more tips and more stuff to to blog about. I have all these ideas running around in my head. One is to let my Hummingbird Lane blog go. I just can't do two. And so many things I want to do for this house would make a great two tips and then it just would not make sense. So I think I may have a tab here on my blog strictly for Hummingbird Lane so you can peek in on my new digs. What do you think of that idea?
I am also planning some giveaways...my first ones! I have never done them before but I can explain why later.
Do you like how I am telling you all my plans with absolutely nothing to offer you today? What can I give you. Hmmmm...how bout...
My recipe for this amazing cake from last years birthday party for the girls? It is a great summer treat and sooooooo easy. Here goes....
What you need:
8 ice cream sandwiches (regular size)
A gallon of your favorite ice cream flavor
Toppings of choice if you wish
Place a springform baking pan and plate in the freezer (maybe an hour) I did it for less because I am so impatient.
Cut the ice cream sandwiches. Cut them lengthwise first, then across. This process will cause a lot of melting so put them on the cold plat and put them back int he freezer again until firm.
After the melting fiasco is over then it is easy. Take your cut ice cream sandwiches and line the springform pan with them around the edge. If you are working fast, you will have time to put the ice cream in the center. Just scoop it all in there and smooth the top. You are done!
Just before serving, remove the springform pan. Put toppings on. I did this the night before and it worked best.
A great summer treat (and right before Father's Day too!)
