I've got ice cream churning in the ice cream maker. It's vanilla at the moment, but will be transformed into Brownie Fudge Swirl once it's churned. Had a few brownies left and some homemade fudge sauce.......And voila!
Today was our last day of our "no cooking" vacation. Mom made a salad, and I sauteed some mushrooms, but that wasn't really cooking. For supper we had lox, herring in cream sauce, and cold shrimp along with Mom's tossed salad. Yummy!! 😋
Brother comes home tomorrow, and it's back to coming up with new ideas for dinner. Maybe he'll've been inspired in his travels and come up with some new ideas.
Mom's been watching the videotapes of the trip she and Dad took back in 2001. It's hard hearing his voice again. Brother sounds just like him, so in a way, I hear his voice every day, but to hear HIS actual voice on the tape, it hurts. Mom seems to be enjoying reliving the trip though, so I haven't said anything. I wonder what made her want to watch them?
We had our thunderstorm this afternnon, like clockwork. Rained hard for maybe 10 minutes. Didn't see lightning, but the thunder was impressively loud.
How it's time to go mix the fudge and brownies into the ice cream (and maybe sneak a taste.......or two..........only for quality control purposes, of course!)
