Family Celebration

So you say it's your Birthday...

Back when we lived in Iowa, we liked to eat at a restaurant that had a dessert called the Big A$$ Ice cream. It was a pretty elaborate chunk of homemade Neapolitan ice cream with a cookie crust base topped with whipped cream, chocolate, nuts, strawberries, etc. and some tall skinny candles.

We've adopted the idea for our "family" birthday celebrations.
You know, when there aren't enough people to warrant buying and eating a big ol' cake. Here's my humble version...

Just be sure to buy the ice cream in the kind of box that has the ends that fold & tuck together.
I like to cut the ice cream diagonally so that it looks like a slice of cake.
Open the end and pry it out with a wide bladed knife.

  1. I could use a Big A$$ ice cream right now. It's been a day. I'm going to have to remember that idea.
