Thursday we are hitting the road. Destination: Ft. Worth, Texas for Glenn’s family reunion. I will not be taking my laptop on the trip. I know, I might have withdraws! But until we get back I thought I would fill you in on the details of our Ice Cream Social this last weekend. Ice Cream Socials were a regular thing in our small town in Missouri.
I thought it would be fun to invite friends and neighbors over for dessert. And I haven’t known anyone who would turn down a bowl of ice cream…made just the way they like it!
Parker got dressed up for the party…she wore her hot pink bikini and black cowgirl boots. She lives in swimsuits during the summer (and occasionally in the winter too).
Alex picked out all the ice cream flavors. The good stuff, not the cheap stuff here. Mint chocolate chip, Reese’s peanut butter, Neapolitan, chocolate, vanilla bean, and Oreo cookie. And, as you can see, there was no shortage on toppings!
Pictured top left is Semi-Banana Split Bites: chocolate dipped bananas, rolled in nuts, with whipped cream and a cherry. I originally saw this idea on Bakers Royale. She actually hollowed out the banana and stuffed it with ice cream. Yeah, I am too lazy for that! I skipped that part. Oh yeah, and the whipped cream melted quickly and slide off the bananas leaving a runny mess. I would suggest you add the whipped cream and cherry, then QUICK hand these little babies out. Don’t even wait 5 minutes.
I have to apologize to the parents of the children who attended the party ’cause they were hopped up on sugar. Sorry. Glenn made a last minute run to Walmart for Coke to make a few grown-up drinks. He came back with Orange Crush which is like Crack to kids! Sorry again.
This Ice Cream Social was a hit…and much easier than a barbeque!
I would like to see the cow girl boots with the bikini. when i was a kid our family had the old fashion churn ice cream maker with the rock salt and ice, all taking turns turning the handle. what work that was, but ooh so gooood.
I remember us doing that too. Thank goodness they have these new inventions called electric ice cream markers!
Sounds like fun! Hey, it’s ok to get the kids hyped every once in a while! Thats the best part of being a kid … ice cream, fun and craziness!
Sometimes I think my friends think that is all I serve…sugar and ice cream, because I am always inviting them over for a sugar overload. Carrot and celery stick parties wouldn’t be very popular!
