Perk Me Up Apron

There are certain necessities in life—1.Coffee and 2. Chocolate; they go hand in hand. If you are looking for an energy booster, try this apron Perk Me Up by Wendy Bentley fabric. This collection is a flash back to ‘60’s art, with the color trends of today.

There are 3 lined pockets in front that are 7"deep. The fabric is fun, perfect for any occassion.  Apron measures 29" at waist and 15" long includes the ruffle, and it is lined with a coordinating cotton fabric.
Wendy made these fabric covered boxes.
Wouldn't these be great as a gift set for the coffee lover.
One with the apron, one filled with coffee and the other with chocolate.
The perfect gift!!

Place Setting Tags

Here are some tags I made and I thought they would be great to add to a place setting or to hang on a gift of food.

Pretty package tags

A Ice Cream Desert

Do you have plans for the long weekend?
Do you need something easy and oh so good to make?
It will be 97 degrees here today. The 3rd of September and after making my ice cream apron
I wanted ice cream so I made this wonderful treat that my friend from work brought in one day. She called it a funeral cake because this is what she takes to a wake and everyone loves it and so did I!
You will be surprised!
What you need is
1/2 gallon vanilla ice cream, any brand. It does not have to be expensive.

2 Packages vanilla instant pudding. (large box)

2 sleeves Ritz or Town House crackers

And Cool Whip (8oz will do)
Those are the ingredients.
But first you must let the ice cream soften and then add the 2 pudding packages and whip them together

Crumble your crackers (i like the way that sounds) and put into the bottom of 9x13 inch pan

Spread the ice cream pudding mix on top

Once that is spread out add the Cool Whip on top of that

That's all there is too it! Easy as Pie!
You can serve in pretty dishes like I did with the crystal goblets "I HAD TO HAVE" when I got married but never use.

I really is very good and was gobbled  up so fast by my family.
(maybe because I finally used my goblets)
I think this would be REALLY good substituting vanilla with chocolate.
OR add bananas to the vanilla.
What is nice about this is the pudding really firms up the ice cream. It WILL NOT run like melted ice cream. So it can sit out for a while. But please refrigerate any left overs.
Have a Great Labor Day Weekend.
