I SCREAM, YOU SCREAM.......

WE ALL SCREAM FOR 
ICE CREAM....
 A MUSING POTPOURRI
is having an 
OLD FASHIONED
ICE CREAM SOCIAL... 
and so is KITCHENBOUQUET 

THIS is a very favorite re-post
featuring ICE CREAM for my DEEDS...

♥♥♥
I found these TWO
BANANA SPLIT BOATS in PINK
at the DOLLAR GENERAL STORE close to my house for half price...
$1.00 each...
just precious and just PERFECT to serve GRANDS a
delicious treat...
MIZZ DEEDS, my most youngest grandgirl,
was spending the weekend with me and
these pink banana boats
were TALKING to us..
"banana splits....we need banana splits"
Sooo....
OF COURSE we started gathering the luscious ingredients of a
TRUE BANANA SPLIT....
just the way SHE wanted it..
♥♥♥
HOT FUDGE
FRESH FRUITS
WHIPPED CREAM
PECANS
CHERRIES
OOO, WHAT MORE COULD A GRANDGIRL WANT ??
why....PINK COOKIES, of COURSE.
♥♥♥
(O, yes...$2.00 for the two banana split boats and
$1,000.00 for ingredients....
but......that's what grandmothers do, you know !! ;>))
Fresh strawberries.....fresh, ripe bananas....
Our eyes were dancing by this time...
diamonds make SOME girls happy..
...fresh fruits going in to make a BANANA SPLIT makes US happy....uh hu !!!

May I just say that THIS was a WORK OF ART....
A delicious bed of fresh BANANAS....
♥♥♥
#1.....Vanilla Bean Ice Cream..
#2.....Fresh Strawberries...
#3.....HOT Fudge...
#4.....Paula Deen's WONDERFUL Ice Cream Topping PECANS...
#5.....Creamy Whipped Cream...
#6.....with CHERRIES ON TOP !!...
TOTAL $1000.00 (well, nearly !) :>)
TIME WITH A GRANDGIRL.....
PRICELESS !!

The pinkness girl didn't waste a minutes time on chowing down on this beauty..!
NOTICE...she never takes her eyes off that ICE CREAM.... 
♥♥♥

♪♫♫ HOT FUDGE ♪♫♪
O HONEY

Believe me when I say you NEVA get too old for HOT FUDGE...

My pretty girl was getting after that delicious
BANANA SPLIT...
I'm not even sure she TASTED those pink cookies...
her mouth was too full of ICE CREAM.....:))

DREAMS are made of ICE CREAM...!!!!

I love ice cream! It's one of my favorite memories of time with my Dad as kid. Your grandkids will have the same memories!!

Barbara F. said...

Yum-yum-yum. I didn't know Paula Deen had pecans for ice cream!! xo,

Dixie said...

I just knew when I saw your post title that there was going to be icecream when I got to this post.
YUM!

Theresa said...

I remember this sweet post and enjoyed it again:) Deeds is precious and that banana split is making my mouth water!

Enjoy your weekend dear BJ, HUGS!

Oh, isn't she a cutie! Those splits looks so good! What time is ice cream?

Kathleen Grace said...

Don't tell me that dear little girl ate that whole big banana split! It sure looks good:>)

Love Of Quilts said...

Hot Fudge and Pecans! Now I have a craving....looks so good... Granny this is one that she won't forget. Trish

Vee said...

This is no ice cream dream; this is an ice cream event! I guess it's true what they say about the acorn never falling far from the tree. Your bowls of ice cream look like twins!

Robyn said...

WOW! NOw you've done it - I WANT ICE CREAM!! Good thing I just finished dinner and YES, we have a good selection of ice cream in the fridge and whipped cream! Yummy! Great find on the banana split bowls! Have a wonderful pink weekend!

Marigene said...

Oh, yummy...ice cream is one of my major downfalls!
Have a great weekend, BJ.

LV said...

Nothing better than a big banana split with Blue Bell or Braums. I love it, but try to not over eat. That is a great picture of your granddaughters.

NanaDiana said...

Oh- That looks like a delightful treat for your granddaughter. I haven't had a banana split in 500 years...well, I might have exaggerated a tad...maybe 15 years~

What a great post and your little gd is so intense while she is eating that thing. How funny is that? LOVE the little pink boats!

I do that You Scream. I Scream, We All scream with the kids on the way to our local Frosty Tip and we each actually DO scream! Yeah...with the windows rolled up...never said I was too bright now, did I? xo Diana

La said...

Deeds is a girl after my heart. She can make me a banana split any time.

I love your ice cream fairy too. Thanks for joining in on the fun! La

Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

Oh my that looks so good especially when I am watching what I eat now after seeing pictures of me last weekend. No ice cream for me.

Julie Harward said...

Oh my gosh bj...that picture has got me screaming...headed to the kitchen right now! :D

Chrissy...The Apothecary Shop said...

OH B.J. how I have missed you...your posts just warm my heart..your such a happy,lovely person!! x0x0x0 SEA

xinex said...

Can I be your granddaughter, BJ? LOL! I want to be fed by you. You prepare the best foods. Yum!...Christine

FABBY'S LIVING said...

Love ice cream! My fav lately, no, for a few years now, it's "dulce de leche" ice cream. What memmories you're creating for your grands, I remember my grands with ice cream too. Your oldest grandgirls are gorgeous! Thanks for sharing. Hugs, FABBY

Debbie said...

I love ice cream, and this is the second post featuring the stuff that I've opened this morning. Hmm... I think it's a warning that I'm in for a hot day.

I think my favorite part of this is that your Deeds emailed you a picture for your blog. That is sweeter than the ice cream.

Rita said...

WOW! this post is hard to beat; and your grand daughters are so cute; I think they might be taking after their grandmother...maybe.

Aunt Amelia's Attic said...

Oh-me-oh-my-oh-mercy! Those precious pics of precious Mizz Deeds, say it ALL! :-)

Oh and your present blog look is so, so, so pretty, Dear BJ. I love the way you use creativity and change things around and etc., etc., etc.

LOVE IT!

~♥~

Aunt Amelia's Attic said...

Also love how you highlighted the "Word Verification Free Blog" issue. Right at the top, over your 1st post.

Some people don't know they have it on. Some people don't know about the good SPAM filters on Blogger now. Plus, we ALL read our comments. If a nasty blogger does slip one in on us, we delete it, when we read it. Simple. :-)

I know it will be ok with you, if I *borrow* this idea.

'Cause I don't look at Sidebars much, and so my button, on my Sidebar, I feel it gets lost.

Happier Than a Pig in Mud said...

That banana split looks pretty darn good BJ! I'll bet she loved it:@)

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

OH MY! Leave it to you to find the mostest and bestest ice cream dessert! Happy weekend to you! ♥

Emily said...

I've made a ton of home made ice cream for my family, our son grew up loving it and turning the old ice cream machine his with his PA, my dad. Your pretty pictures makes me want to make it again! Sweeeeeeet photos of your grandgirl and having fun treats. Thanks for sharing, I could look at this post everyday.
bj, have a great weekend.....

Pondside said...

You're right - you're never too old for hot fudge sauce! My favorite quick treat is French vanilla ice cream, chopped nuts and chocolate sauce - I'm in heaven.
Sweet granddaughter there - I'll have to start talking to my kids about the lack of a granddaughter in this family!

Maggie said...

What a wonderful post, the love between the two of you just shines through!
BTW that banana split looked pretty scrumptious too.
Maggie

Debbie@Mountain Breaths said...

I love everything about this sweet post! You remind me of my sweet grandmother :-)

Beth said...

That is the prettiest banana split I have ever seen! You are a fabulous cook, a fabulous photographer and a fabulous grandma! Deeds is one lucky girl!

Carol @ There's Always Thyme to Cook said...

Just about the best ever banana split! She's adorable and looks like she is really enjoying that sundae! Very sweet post!

Oh 'BJ', the home you see, "behind" my husband's flowers, is NOT our home. It's the home of our son/daughter-in-law next door!

My husband's flower garden is in the front yard, next to their yard. And when I took that pic, THEIR home shows.

It is pretty and they had someone landscape it for them, and it's lovely looking. Sorry I didn't put that info, under the picture. Our house is years older and not so sharp. :-)

Hugs...

Suzy said...

Wonderful post. The dishes are so cute but the granddaughter is cuter! That is definitely a work of art created there :-) Thanks for joining in at the social. Mark the calendar for next year!

Sares said...

THAT looks dangerous! But oh so yummy. I agree about the word verification, it's annoying. I think most people just don't know to take it off or how to.
I am a "PIN" girl myself, it's my latest addiction! Happy Pink Saturday and have a wonderful weekend!

Shug said...

SWEET...bj. I used to not care for ice cream, but since Andy's came to town, I have been smitten..
Blackberry concrete is my favorite...

Have a great sunday

Atelier de Charo said...

So fresh and yummy post! Love ice cream too!

Sweet Tea said...

I'm convinced the world would be a happier place if everyone ate a bowl of ice cream each day.

Pam said...

Oh my gosh this looks so good!!!!!

Chari at Happy To Design said...

Hi BJ...

Sorry, Sunday Favorites was cancelled this week! I have family here from Texas. I left notes on my last two posts about cancelling the party today....you must have missed them!

Warmest wishes,
Chari

Foley said...

First the hot fudge got me until I saw those gorgeous pecans on top...

Carol said...

BJ,
What a beautifully delicious post! Great banana split dishes, and the banana split itself....words fail!
Sweet granddaughter. She sure is having a great time.

Tina @ MOMS CRAZY COOKING said...
