Pint of ice cream + bag of cookies = instant dessert
This is a really no-brainer idea, but it is a lifesaver when you're having company over and don't want to fuss or bake (well, I suppose you could bake the cookies) but would still like the illusion of serving something not straight off the bakery shelf. Although that's okay in my book as well.
On that note, happy weekend. Keep things simple and go enjoy the cherry blossoms.
