Abby's soccer team came over last week for a swim party.
At the last minute I decided to make my "trough" dessert for the girls, because it feeds a lot and is always a big hit.
My friend had borrowed my trough (which is just a planter box!) the day before and returned it with leftover cake (perfect since I don't have an oven right now).
After filling the bottom with ice, then plastic wrap, we cut the cake up into cubes.
Scooped out the ice cream (2 pints).
Added whipped cream and a few bananas. Sprinkled with M&Ms and Wah Lah! A trough ready to go!
My friend Cindy and I carried it out to the girls (best to eat outside where they can make a mess!) with plastic spoons and paper towels. And the girls dug in!
Good friendships, sunshine, water, imaginations, laughter, yummy food and full tummies.
I'm all for nurturing healthy relationships for my daughter!
And this kind of party just makes a mom feel good!
I'd love to hear if you've tried my Ice Cream Trough in the past?
If you grew up with Farrell's Ice Cream Parlor, do you remember the Pig Trough?
