That's lovely @Grahamstown - I was wondering how you were going. We have had a fairly social week too - but my funny story this week - we went out to a nice Italian restaurant that we are lucky to have in our tiny town- after our mains we were too full for desert so I asked for a single slice of their baked ricotta cheese cake to take home . When home I asked N if he would like to share the cake with some icecream. He said if I could trust him he would prepare it ! Yes great I said . Off to the kitchen (not far) and back 10 minutes later with cake decided into 4 serves - each with icecream ! One for each of us and one each for our dogs !! It did make me laugh. But I said - oh I don't think icecream is good for their teeth - we had better have their helpings !!
