Slice of Kiwi Crochet Earrings

Even though it was in the mid 90s today, I was still in the mood to crochet. So to make something to match this beautiful sunny weather, I came up with these earrings: Slice of Kiwi- $12

Roasted Figs with Mascorpone Ice Cream

I bought these beautiful figs in Costco today and couldn't wait to make a delicious dessert with them.
I happened to have Private Selection Chocolate Hazelnut Mascarpone Ice Cream, from Fredies (which is to die for). So I decided to incorporate two and come up with something yummy. Plus a cool dessert sounded so good on a hot day like this one.

So I cut the figs in half, linned them up on a foil, sprinkled some sea salt and added 1/2 of tea spoon of sugar into each center of the fig. Then roasted in the over on 420 deg. for about 15-20 min.

Figs added to the scoop of Mascorpone Ice Cream made a delishes and easy dessert.

Currant Vacherin

Yesturday, we were invited to our friends house to watch meteorite shower by the fire. Even though we had no luck with it, we've enjoyed a yummy Currants Vacherin. Earlier this week, I've picked some currants at my dad's house which I've been wanting to use with meringue. Lets just say "the pursuit of happiness, achieved"

Layers of meringue and Whipped Cream are adorned with red and white currants.
