Dessert Thursday

It may sometimes be difficult to decide what you may want to feed your friends when they are over, but one thing is certain everyone loves dessert.  Of course as long as we keep the Hawaiian inspiration theme going, the picturesque scenery adds to sweetness itself.

                                                     Though it can  sometimes be hard to narrow it down to just a few choices, always know your friends will be happy with what ever you choose.   So simple to make them happy and if they are happy so are you.

Like I said the worst part is making the decision as to what you should serve, if you have someone around talk it over with them.  Toss the ideas around, make eclectic selections within your theme, or just go crazy.  Today it is Hawaiian and I think the boys may have helped me choose well, see if you agree.
