Summer Fun

We had a good weekend around the Yellow House. And our weekend still goes on. Today is a bank holiday here, a public holiday, similar to Labor Day back home and to me, it’s the unofficial end of summer. It is making my mind turn to autumn and what lies ahead :-)

But this weekend, Brit Boy and I have been enjoying our end of summer and end of his vacation from work. So in honor of that, yesterday I made us a couple of brownie and ice cream sundaes and soon after I took this picture, I promptly plowed in with my spoon :-)




I had a great time making these and we had a good time eating them :-) A treat is a wonderful thing every now and then and a summer treat is even better!

I've been looking around recently and there seems to be some really great value holidays to Benidorm out there. Having a trip to sunny Spain along with this summer treat above is my idea of paradise! Here's to holidays, food, and fun!

That looks delicious! I hope you both had a wonderful summer. I have to say that Fall is becoming my favorite season. I just love the transition from the hot days to the cool.
Now, it's too bad they haven't invented a way for me to be able to download that sundae and eat it:)

The brownies look yummy, no wonder you tucked in fast before the icecream melted!

MMM brownie sundae! I'm looking forward to autumn too. I grew up in Florida sans seasons so I really look forward to the changing of the seasons here in England. Have a great week! :) xox

Dori,
OMG. . .That photo is too much. I can actually smell brownies right now. I'm definitely going to have a special treat today and it will include something chocolate. LOL

I love the fall. When I went walking this morning, it was definitely in the air. The leaves have already started to change and it was nice and cool. Just beautiful!

Thanks for sharing. :-)

Thanks everyone for the comments :) Yep, Brit Boy and I had a great Bank Holiday and those brownie sundaes were just the ticket for our end of summer celebration. Now I think I'll turn my culinary skill towards making muffins...healthier ones. Autumn feels like muffin time :)Have a great weekend everyone!
