Happy Father's Food Day
both trying to lessen our sugar intake so I needed to figure out how to make a luscious looking dessert lower in sugar. I made the cookies using whole wheat flour, macadamia nuts, coconut (his favorite flavor), almond flour, and Splenda Blend so they were much healthier than the original recipe but just as tasty. The ice cream is a triple chocolate Dryers Splenda version; it's yummy! To fancy up the dessert with just a few calories, I topped off the dessert with half of a fresh apricot and a fresh cherry with the stem on.
I almost forgot to make a Father's Day card because of the thinking I was doing for the cooking, but I came up with a quickie that I think expresses what my boys and I think about my husband as a father. (The typewriter printed words were stamped using a Hero Arts alphabet set from Ben Franklin Crafts.) The silver ink on the Superman shirt is barely readable in the photo, but it says, "You're Super DAD!". Over the years my husband has served as a dad for me, too and you just can't imagine all the energy he's had to exert taking care of all of us in his high-maintenance family. Thanks DAD!
