We've been having friends over a lot more frequently in our new place, which is a lot of fun. We're playing games, even ones I enjoy, and ordering out and generally using our friends as guinea pigs for things we want to try (umm, see ordering out). Someday our games played will not be quite so much Apples to Apples and Uno. We've been playing a lot of Uno.
Of course this week has been kind of crazy in that super busy way with my lovely husband getting to work before 8 a.m. While people are getting together at our place, I believe we're also trying for around or just after 7 p.m. Neither of us is getting home early today (I'm stopping by the grocery store for ice cream fixings).
I'm thinking of making a cherry cheesecake ice cream. I have cream cheese. I have cherries. I have sugar and lemon and vanilla. I just need to get another container of heavy cream or light cream in case what I have has aged beyond the using point. Of course, while I want to make ice cream because it is hot, I also want to make these pies because they sound and look delicious! Maybe when I go to the grocery store I'll get refrigerated pie crust, and make lazy pies to go with the ice cream.
Of course, in the if wishes were horses category, if I was smart I would have already placed an order with Penzeys for cumin (which I am almost always out of) and for vanilla beans. I wonder if I can go back in time and order the spices last week so I'll have them in the kitchen now.
