bbq tonight to celebrate our successes, triumphs and a few trials and tribulations. I made this wonderful, refreshing dessert. I hope you try it!
4 c pretzel sticks, coarsely ground
3 T granulated sugar
1/3 c melted butter
Mix and firmly press into a 9" pie plate. Bake 425 for 5-7 min. Place in freezer to cool.
5 c strawberry ice cream
2 T tequila and orange flavoured liqueur
1 c sliced strawberries for garnish
When crust is cool, place slightly softened ice cream in a large bowl. Squeeze juice from lime, stir in tequila and liqueur. It's ok if mixture is lumpy....mixture should resemble a thick milkshake. Spoon into cooled crust and cover with plastic wrap and freeze until firm ( 4 hours) Let sit 10 min before serving and garnish if desired...yummy!!!

Trevi fountain in Rome...a bustling place, full of tourists and Romans out for a stroll, had dinner in a small restaurant together over beer and wine and became fast friends. It was as if we had known each other for years. Funny thing, even our husbands had a blast together! We met again last night, for the first time since our cruise, to have dinner and share our continuing life stories. What a memorable reunion! We're going to do it again....real soon!

Something is wrong with this picture: it's Wednesday, and the golfing gals golfed. It always rains on Wednesday so we rarely golf together. We made up for it today. Are we good? Hell no! But we can laugh and be silly and when the 9 holes are over, we walk away with a warm fuzzy feeling. Ok, I am speaking for myself now. We call ourselves the "Leen's" and we golf sporatically together. Lynn and Linda enjoy the thrill of searching for balls in any water source and Mar and Shirl stand and watch. I took a few pix to share...doesn't it look like we're having fun? Juice, girls!!

Quick post...we just had our first earthquake of the century! It was a little one, less than 20 seconds but one nonetheless. I was on the phone with our daughter who works in Toronto and she was the first to notice that her desk was shaking. At first, she wondered if it had anything to do with the G20. What excitement!!

It's officially here....SUMMER!! Longest day of the year....yahoo! We had the best Father's Day yesterday with the kids coming home for the day. Our son Matt provided a delicious pulled pork dish and I had a variety of cold salads ready to go...carrot, pasta and broccoli. A dip in the pool, a few cold drinks and we had the makings of a perfect day! Our daughter Cat helped me with my blog. How did you celebrate the day?

Happy Father's Day! My Dad passed away March 2009 and I miss him. He loved every sport but enjoyed a game of golf. So, here's to you Dad. Hope you are enjoying your round today. I love you!
