My earliest recollection of Valentines Day was in second grade. The teacher, Mrs. Fenwick, had us make Valentine mailboxes...ok I 'm into that...what's not to like ...it's a craft right! But, then the shoe dropped...."you must take this list of ALL YOUR CLASSMATES home and bring a Valentine for each one! WHAT!?! ...lets be honest did you like everyone in your class....and then send a Valentine to them!!! YUCKO!! ...I didn't sleep much 'cuz I didn't like the whole idea...."Mom.. I'm not feeling so good today..I should stay home today, 'kay.'' "But Honey, it's the big Valentines Day Party". (Exactly).
So, I delivered my cards (honest I did). "Children it's time to do a dance called the Minuet. Form two lines; girls in one, boys in the other, facing one another." The music starts ...one step ..double step hold hands and....COOTIES. Refreshments: Pink Punch, Pink Cookies and the silly message hearts ...I coped.
Here is my favorite pink dessert...I think you will Luv it:
ICE CREAM DESSERT
Soften 1/2 gallon Vanilla Ice Cream
1 1/2 cups crushed Rice Checks Cereal
3/4 cup Light Brown Sugar
1 Stick Butter, melted
1/2 cup coconut
pinch of salt
Press 1/2 above into 9X13. Set aside.
When Ice Cream is thawed, spread onto crust, and freeze.
Thaw 1 quart of Rasberry Sherbet, spread on top of frozen Vanilla Ice Cream.
Sprinkle with the remaining crust fixings and freeze.
what's with the white lines..must be cooties!
