Ice Cream Monday

Hi friends!

Just popping in real quick to tell you about this little dessert I recently discovered…

You will want to make it ASAP. Perfect for last minute gatherings or for your kids’ birthday parties as an alternative to the usual birthday cake!

Inspired by this post. Here is another variation, too!

Ice Cream Sandwich Cake

12-15 ice cream sandwiches

{variety of your choice ~ I used mini ice cream sammies found at Ralphs, their brand, 16 in a box}

Chocolate syrup, caramel sauce, or even Magic Shell would be fun!

Tub of Cool-whip

M&M’s or candy bar of choice {chopped up}

Use a tray or large dish to assemble this dessert. Lay a row of ice cream sandwiches onto your plate, tray or dish side by side. Spread on a layer of cool-whip, drizzle with chocolate syrup or caramel sauce and then sprinkle your candy of choice on top. Repeat with the same number of ice cream sandwiches followed by another layer of cool-whip, syrup and candy. Repeat one last time and you’re done! Place in freezer for a couple hours before serving and cut with a serrated knife.

Easy, right?

This would be fun at Christmas with the mint ice cream sandwiches and the red and green M&M’s or chopped peppermint bark.

Or what about neapolitan ice cream sammies with slices of banana in-between and topped with sliced almonds and cherries for a Banana Split Ice Cream Cake?

And I do know that they have cookie and cream ice cream sandwiches, too!

Have fun with it!!!

You must make one before summer officially ends.

Um, that’s what’s dangerous about living in So Cal…….

The Happiest Sandwich On Earth

I remember years {and years} ago my Mom ordered a Monte Cristo sandwich at The Blue Bayou Restaurant at Disneyland.

At the time I had no idea what it was, but once I took a bite, I knew it was something special. Like a mash up of french toast and ham & cheese. With powdered sugar. And maple syrup.

Julie over at Joy’s Hope introduced an updated, much healthier version of this ‘wich and I immediately knew it was on our Saturday lunch menu.

All you need is a tube of crescent rolls, some ham or turkey {or both} and queso of choice. I used honey ham and swiss. I finished them off with a light dusting of powdered sugar and seedless blackberry jam.

{Just follow Julie’s easy tutorial to put these sammies together}

I served it with some mini banana & blueberry skewers.

These were fantastic and I could close my eyes and imagine sitting {outside} at the Blue Bayou as park goers climb on the Pirates Of The Caribbean boat ride.

This may very well be the {happiest lunch on earth}.


Blessed In The West

You remember this episode of Friends, right?

The one where Ross’ turkey sandwich gets stolen from the ‘fridge at work?

Not just ANY turkey sandwich, but a Thanksgiving leftovers turkey sandwich with Monica’s “moist maker” gravy soaked bread slice in the middle.

About 12 or 13 years ago I had a sandwich that rivaled what I think Ross’ sandwich may have tasted like…at least, his reaction is probably what I would display if this sandwich was taken from me.

It was called “The Bobbie” and it came all the way from a tiny sandwich shop called Capriotti’s in Delaware. One of the Regional Sales Managers, Alain, sent sandwiches to all his peeps at the ACC credit center. Dry ice rocks!

I thought about this sandwich from time to time and in 2001 (4 years later) I was in DE for work and we went to Capriotti’s and picked up a Bobbie. Oh man, you’ve got to try this sandwich.

Check out this baby here!

Tender pulled turkey, stuffing (yes, bread on bread!), cranberry sauce and mayo on a soft roll!

The good news…there are 2 Capriotti’s here in LA. I don’t know what prompted me to Google this yesterday, but I’m glad I did. I’m thinking a trip down to Wilshire (9683 Wilshire Blvd.¬†Beverly Hills)¬†on Mother’s Day would be the perfect gift!

There are also several stores in Vegas…

According to this article from The Huffington Post, nothing was lost when this little sandwich shop in Delaware decided to branch out and move West. The Bobbie tastes just as good in glitzy Beverly Hills as it does in the little riverside city of Wilmington.

Generally, I don’t like when a small, local icon of a business franchises out, but I. AM. NOT. COMPLAINING. HERE.

Bobbie, I’ll see you real soon!
