Yes, the sun can make you sick.

Poor Arianna. She got too much sun today. We ended up going to city beach and playing in the water for a few hours. It pretty much killed us all…

The kids died when we got home. But Arianna ended up with a bit of sun poisoning. Poor thing. She is better now, but the house is out of anything vitamin C.

All the playing made us a bit hungry so it was time for food fun. I fixed up some cold shrimp with a lemon garlic tartar that the whole family seems to think is awesome. I will be sharing that recipe the next time I make it. We made hamburgers and Bill BBQed them and a pork loin that I picked up for him, along with some turkey dogs. Oh… it was so good.  I am full again just thinking of the spread.

And just when we thought that it couldn’t get any better, I made dessert. I know, I know… I am going back on what I said. But this was lowish fat and so good.

Sponge cake with white chocolate mousse and fresh blueberries. Oh wow! That was some of the best dessert that I have made in a long time. Thank you Yokes for having beautiful looking blueberries on sale.

I decided to go for a quick run now that I have my inhaler. YES!!! It works. So I do have exercise-induced asthma after all. I ran about half of the 1.13 miles and it didn’t hurt. I love this!

When I got home from running our kids and the neighbors kids, as well as a boy from the neighborhood that Arianna likes were waiting for me. It was time to light off all the fireworks that we bought last week. Fun Fun. The kids loved it and it was fun for all the pyro adults too.

Well, its 10:30 and the kids are in bed.We are going to a verterans stand-down in the morning, so I better head off to bed so that I will have energy to wrangle kids and new stuff tomorrow. I just know I will be dreaming about that dessert.

Mmmm. Now thats a sweet dream.

No more dessert

I love dessert. Its obvious in the fact that I cook it nearly every night. There is just nothing like dipping your silverware into something creamy or gooey. Well, I caught a glimpse of myself in a picture yesterday and I am not happy with what I see. So I am changing it.

I made my last dessert last night. I am not saying that I will never make dessert again. In fact I have promised a blueberry frangipane galette for a baby shower next week. But I am not making dessert for me. So it is with sad taste buds that I present:   The last dessert

Ricotta mousse with crushed almonds and fresh cherries. Mmmmm. *sniffle, tear*
