Today I’ve joined up with a bunch of fabulous bloggers to have an ice cream social in preparation for Labor Day Weekend. After you read about this yummy creation, scroll to the bottom to see what everyone else is serving up, like our toffee ice cream sauce!
Plus I’m guest posting a favorite cookie and a tender memory from growing up and how my mom helped me feel better about myself on Is This Really My Life

 

 

Chocolate caramel ice cream sauce just got way better with crunchy little toffee bits. I have always been a texture person. I love to have a little crunch in things. It just tastes better to me. This sauce is super silky and those little nuggets of toffee add the perfect little something.

 

We had these ice cream sundaes to celebrate the first day of school for our little 6 year old. No one told me that 1st grade was going to be harder than kindergarten.

 

 

I actually didn’t even think that kindergarten was that bad anyway. Maybe because I was so used to Preschool, or because it’s only 3 hours every day and I would have her home for lunch. I did hold strong and I didn’t cry, but it was honestly so hard to let her go. I felt like I was sending her out into the big scary world and I had so many worries. Would the other kids be nice? Would her teacher take care of her and teach her the things she needed to know? Would she choose the right and be a good example to those around her? Would she struggle with the school work? And what if she had to sit alone at lunch or had no one to play with at recess? I know, I seem a bit too worried, but kids can be so mean and school can be hard on kids sometimes.

 

Thankfully I didn’t need to worry, and she did fantastic, made new friends and loved her teacher. Now I just hope it continues. I will say I am looking forward to not having kindergarten homework. I swear it has to be the worst because it’s all about the parent sitting there and trying to think on their terms. It was definitely a bit much at times.

 

This ice cream party was a little celebration for making it through the first day and it felt so good to forget work, cleaning etc and just have fun together celebrating a new year and what a blessing it is to be able to send our children to a good school every year.

 

 

There’s just a hint of chocolate in the caramel sauce and though you could totally add more, I like it as mainly a caramel sauce with toffee. And don’t worry, your secret is safe with me if you decide to crack open the fridge and just sluuuuurrrrpp spoonful after spoonful. 😉

 

What do you do that’s special on the first day of school?
