It’s almost the middle of November and I’m still holding on to summer.
At the onset, I made a bucket list. Unfortunately, life happened and I only marked off two items. But, I’m still breathing. That means I can handle a few this fall and others next summer. But, that’s another post.
Everyone in my family likes ice-cream, even those of us (me) who are lactose intolerant. While exploring yard sales one morning, I came across these cute sundae dishes for twenty-five cents each. I have always loved kitchen gadgets and enjoy serving beautifully presented food. I wish I’d grabbed more than four but I was concerned about storage space.
They cleaned up quite well. Glass sundae dishes meant ice-cream treats for the boys and me.
When I decided to make sundaes, I wanted something other than our usual chocolate topping. And, I was out of my favorite Nestle Cocoa Powder. Since I had a bunch of simple syrup in the fridge–summertime in Georgia requires Mint Juleps–I used some of the strawberries I picked up from the farmer’s market.
The 9-year-old was not convinced that I’d be able to pull off a decent sundae with homemade ingredients. Fortunately, his momma has top-notch culinary skills. Let’s just say, JK was totally impressed.
Strawberry Sundae Topping
- 1/4 cup Simple Syrup
- 1/2 cup Strawberries
- Blend strawberries and simple syrup in food processor. I use my Bullet.
