My sister and I share a home here in Florida. We have both raised our children, mine are in their thirties, hers are in their twenties. There is a ten year span between her oldest and my youngest, I lived in California and she was already here in Florida, so we didn't really raise our kids together. Sis and I love each other dearly, but we really don't have much in common. We are polar opposites, in fact.
We do, however, both work at home. Sis does medical billing and I am a graphic designer. Once a week, Sis has to go into her company's office and I can always tell it was a good day when I walk into the kitchen and see something like this on the counter:
You see we do have something in common, we both LOVE chocolate!
This luscious little bite is the Chocolate Mousse Mouse from Frida's Cafe. We don't have many good bakeries in our area, but Frida's always comes through with something scrumptious and this little delight is one of them.
Needless to say, we hastened to make and eat dinner so that we could get to dessert. I have one thing to say, I love these meeses to pieces!
Here are some of the others fabulous finds at Frida's:
A couple of weeks ago, on Foodie Friday, I posted about my obsession with magazines and how I am in the process of weeding out old copies and articles I've saved for far too long. This was another post many of you related to and I want to let you know that I am progressing nicely.
While going through the notebook of desserts, I came across this old ad I had carefully cutout and saved for close to twenty years. It is slated for the recycling bin now, but I wanted to share this special recipe with you today. This still brings a smile to my face every time I see it:
Simple and direct. I believe I've had dreams about this recipe on numerous occasions. So as this post draws to a close, I want to remind all of you of what is now an old adage — Life's short, eat dessert first!
I also want to thank all of you who read my Outdoor Wednesday post — Vintage Beach 1960s, it was so much fun reading your comments and your emails. I had so much fun writing about the era I grew up in and it was equally fun to see you all enjoyed it and the memories it brought back. Thanks!
Now, don't forget to visit Michael at Designs By Gollum for more Foodie Friday Links! Plus, you don't want to miss her new Fall header, it is beautiful!
I love the beach and everything that goes with it! I love the waves lapping at my feet. I love the feel of the sand between my toes. I love the roar of the Pacific and the gentle waves of the Gulf of Mexico in Florida. Let's talk about beaches around the world, bonfires, building sandcastles, swaying palm trees, flamingos, clambakes, sunrises and sunsets. If it's tropical, it fits this blog!
