Banana Splits for Dinner

About two weeks ago, I read this story about a little boy who was born with Down's Syndrome and a heart defect. Nothing more can be done for this child. His mother's wish is to create a wonderful memory with her child in mind. Her idea was to have "Banana Splits for Dinner." Mind you, most people do this with their children, but we had banana splits for dinner. It's a dinner that will be remembered. So much fun. We had not had one in years!

We had vanilla ice cream with orange marmalade and dark chocolate syrup for our dinner tonight.

It's one of those thoughts that should not have come true...very good, too good and horribly bad for both of us.

The marmalade is from Seville, made with Seville oranges and brandy. It is heaven in jam form. I thought it would be really good on vanilla ice cream, I was right. The chocolate syrup was Shrek's idea.

Like I said, too good to repeat anytime soon...

Did you buy the marmalade in Seville or can it be found in the U.S?

Mmmm....nice looking dinners Dave and Harry...everything sounds so good. Loving the desserts for dinner, too! Life is short, we need to have dessert for dinner every now and then.

I had scallops and a fruit salad for an early dinner this evening. Nothing fancy with the scallops, just pan seared with a little lemon juice. Yummy.

sad story, pf. my heart goes out to them, truely.


but i must say that the last time that i bought marmalade from seville it had not one but two hairs in it.

i was so disgusted that i just chucked it.

too many damn barbers in seville.
