Nurse on duty

I had no intention of taking a little blogging hiatus, but sometimes life just gets in the way. As some of you may remember, hubby is a pro cyclist, and pro cyclists like to ride really, really fast. And when they wreck, it never tends to be pretty. Hubby was involved in a crash last weekend, which left me frantically rushing to the ER and on nurse duty this week. He sustained several injuries but should be just fine in 4 to 8 weeks. Heaven has been helping me out with the nursing duties while I'm at school and work. She likes to crawl up into his sling and nap. I'm sure it's just so that she can be ready in case he needs help.

Hope you are all having a wonderful weekend!!

gelato sammies

There's just something about ice cream sandwiches that screams "summer". While you can't go wrong with the classic version, I decided to put my own spin on this traditional summertime treat. The only problem is that they are totally addictive and I probably could have eaten 5 of them in one sitting.

Tips for making the perfect homemade gelato/ice cream sammie:
- Let the gelato/ice cream soften a little first so you don't break your cookie when making the sandwich
- Wrap assembled sandwich in wax paper and pop back into the freezer so the gelato/ice cream can firm back up. The time in the freezer also softens the cookies a bit so your sammie won't break into pieces when you go to eat it.
