Thanks, Ms. Trudy & Ms. Sonya!!!

For the kids' teachers, we wanted to do something extra special to thank them for all of their hard work during this past school year. So, we decided to put a little "twist" on our Christmas gift we gave them, and instead of bringing supper to their house one night, we surprised them with a homemade lunch at school! Complete with fancy china, goldware, flower, personal note from the kids, and candle light, they were definitely the envy of the Teacher's Lounge!!

Ms. Trudy, Kinlee's teacher, was first on the list. Yesterday, I got Kinlee out of class a little before lunch, and she met me in the Teacher's Lounge to help me get it all ready. Ms. Trudy was very surprised when she walked in and saw her special place setting.

Ms. Sonya, Parker's teacher, enjoyed her lunch today. It was neat to see even Parker excited about the surprise!! I wasn't sure if it would be "too cool" for him or not, but he loved it!! The kids were so excited to be "sneaky" that they couldn't wait for their teachers to come in the room!! (Sorry for Parker's "blurriness" below - I had some kind of smudge on my lens!)

The menu for the day consisted of the following:



Fresh Fruit

Garlic Bread Sticks

Ice Cream Sandwich Dessert


Here is the recipe for the Ice Cream Sandwich Dessert - very easy and VERY yummy!........

1 box of 12 ct. ice cream sandwiches

8 oz. cool whip

chocolate syrup/caramel syrup

crushed oreos

In an 8x8 pan, place a layer of ice cream sandwiches. Cover the sandwiches with a thin layer of cool whip and drizzle with chocolate or caramel (or both!!). Repeat with another layer of ice cream sandwiches, and the rest of the cool whip. Top with syrup(s) and crushed oreos. Put it in the freezer uncovered until everything is somewhat "set". Cover with saran wrap and foil until ready to serve. Cut like a cake - serves 9. ENJOY!!
