I'm still full.
Not kidding, we need to get up now that we hear movement in the house.  Yesterday Stevi and I went shopping to make dinner and we marinaded 4 lbs. of strip steak in Worchestshire sauce with green onions, lemon zest and rock salt with pepper, roasted potatoes in olive oil , salt and pepper and fresh rosemary, thyme and sage, sauteed asparagus in butter with salt and pepper and then shredded Gouda cheese on top.

Before that, Jack helped me start dessert in the ice cream maker, Stevi chose peanut butter ice cream which is made with heavy and light whipping cream, sugar and creamy peanut butter.  It was, as Pippa would say..."The best ice cream 
I have had in my entire life!"  See her jumping for joy in the picture?
  For the ice cream party we sliced bananas, had chopped nuts, chocolate chips, chocolate syrup, whipped cream and chocolate dipped cones as well as waffle bowls.  It was fantastic, as Stevi and I brought Jack for his evening wagon ride, I guess the topic of conversation at the house was when are they getting an ice cream maker.  It makes for a fun evening and there is no ice cream like
 home made ice cream.  Time to get up and walk the 3 miles to get coffee, I need to walk off dinner from last night!

Seriously, that ice cream was amazing. We talked about it for at least 45 minutes, and I'm pretty sure my brother is ready to have you adopt him. The food was wonderful! Kevin is still talking about how full he is from last night!!! Thank you so much for spoiling us!
