Best laid plans...

So the wife didn't get her job...we'll be staying on here for a while longer...not exactly boosting my morale but such is life. On the food front...it's Mardi Gras season here and King cake is the order of the day - one would think that purple, gold, and green (the colors of Mardi Gras) sugar would be relatively simple to locate. I'm new here and maybe I looked in the wrong spots but I could find green and gold with only minor trouble but purple (which appears on half or more of the cakes in this town) was more difficult than any needle in any haystack. Never fear...I bought purple icing color and solved my issue creatively. I'm baking this afternoon and tomorrow and will post pictures...hopefully.

Check out this site...I think you'll like it! http://icecreamireland.com I think the flavors of ice cream are incredible! Maybe for the 4th of July we'll have something different than plain vanilla ice cream!
