We had a very pleasant weekend.
May 14 was the 14th anniversary of our engagement.
We celebrated at the wedding of a girl that we knew in NY
who would also be our neighbor in NC.
It was fun to have the whole day together.
We ended the day with a trip to Golden Corral.
May 15 was my 41st birthday.
The day was absolutely beautiful.
Sunny all day, cool breeze, and a pleasant 75 degrees.
Picture perfect day.
We believe that this is the fourth year that we have celebrated with my own special birthday feast:
deli mustard potato salad
canned Bush's beans
Not a very balanced meal ... but my favorite none the less.
I was missing my childhood favorite : a Carvel Ice Cream Cake
I can't have the yummy cookie crumbs
and I would regret having the ice cream,
I made ice cream sandwiches.
We started with these ginger cookies.
Then we filled them with coconut ice cream.
The fun was a suggestion by google search.
In order to fill our sandwiches,
we took the pint of ice cream (yes, that's the only way it comes),
tipped the pint on it's side,
and sliced it.
It was perfect.
Then we just popped the cardboard off and sandwiched it between the cookies.
Pretty and practical.
