    OK, so I just found out that my darling husband :huh: is bringing over the VP OF HIS COMPANY (who is in town addressing an issue) for dinner. :eek: I am somewhat frantically dusting, sweeping, and thinking of what to cook for dinner.

    So far, I'm thinking baked steak, potatoes, corn, and rolls. But I need a dessert! Any ideas?

    I have actually thought about getting a pie from the PieMaker (just frozen pies, pretty good). Do you think this is too cheesy?

    Oh, and it snowed 8 inches last night, so it's cold and wet outside...hence the warm, homecooked food.

    A crisp is always pretty easy and delicious. Also, an apple crisp would go great with your meal.

    Come on over, kinder! I have caramel and vanilla ice cream, so you can have your choice. It should be coming out of the oven about 5pm.

    kcjo13--Crepes are quick and easy and always seem special. Here are a few of our favourites:
    - fill with ice cream and top with fresh fruit and whipped cream.
    - fill with whipped cream and fruit and drizzle with chocolate and butterscotch sauces
    - fill with apples sauteed in butter, brown sugar and cinnamon and top with ice cream

    You all beat me to it. An apple crisp with vanilla ice cream is my favorite easy dessert to make. And, no, I don't think you will disgrace yourself if you buy a pie.

    It's Thanksgiving weekend here in Canada. While we don't have snow where I am yet, my husband just came in and told my daughter to get out her snowboard. The neighbour's son has been driving back and forth to the arena all afternoon carting home snow to put on the hill beside the house so that he can go boarding!

    Forget the pie........ If it's snowy, cold, and wet give the VP a healthy serving (or two) of Grand Marnier in front of the fireplace ......:p

    I have a great (easy) recipe for a melted ice cream cake and one for a rum cake, both that just use a cake mix as a base. I also make a good saltine brittle and a fruit pizza.

    Buy the pie. Anyone who comes on short notice is happy with anything.
