AUGUST 2nd – ICE CREAM SANDWICH DAY

This was a no-brainer dessert idea -- a cool, delicious ice cream wedge between cookies or soft pastry outer layers.  It's an inexpensive rite of summertime to nosh on these, whether you wave down an ice cream truck or buy a box at the supermarket.

Tip: Have ice cream sandwiches on hand as a reward for reading a yummy book today.  Remind your little ones that books are just like ice cream sandwiches -- the really good stuff is in the middle.
