Desserts!

Hello! Hope you guys are enjoying the weekend. Yesterday was one of those days when I just felt like blasting through my to do list. I woke up and taught Body Step and then came home to really get started on my to dos. I cleaned the whole house, cut Josh's hair, gave Frank a bath, got caught up on laundry and ironing, ran errands, and made up my desserts for the party we were attending last night (phewwwwww).

You guys had sent me SO many wonderful dessert ideas, it was almost impossible to choose what to make. In the end, I made Gina's fabulous Black Forest Tarts (minus the white chocolate as my white chocolate chips refused to melt nicely), Frozen Bananas (half topped with chopped nuts and half plain), and chocolate covered strawberries.








The party was at our head group fitness instructor's house and it was SO much fun. We didn't get in until around 12:30 and we were exhausted! Its 10 am and I just woke up (felt so good to sleep in). I think I am going to walk to the pool and get in some reading and relaxing!! What are you up to?

Great job on the dessert tray! I love the little bites.

Palidor said...

These look fabulous. I hear you about melting white chocolate. Even if you do everything right, it still might not work out. But, I'm sure the tarts tasted great without it.

Michelle said...

Oh I love my job but I used to feel that way on my old jobs for sure!

Everything looks fabulous.

Yum! I love chocolate dipped treats!

ponyknit said...

Looks great! Did you keep the bananas frozen before serving, or did it just help with the prep? Thanks for linking the black forest recipe. Yum!
