Berry-Chocolate Fools


I’m behind on posting I’m sorry, I was out of town and had a lot of stuff to do yesterday so I’m a day late. My husband and I went on our first jugging night fishing trip. My brother has done this before. He uses old bottles then attaches a line with several hooks that you attach bait to and a weight at the end of the line. You drop it in the water in different areas and go back to check them with hope there’s fish on the line. Here’s a couple of the pictures of the fish we caught on our trip from 7pm-3am.

Here’s one of the vacation homes of the Mrs. Baird’s bread family homes (the big white house) on Lake Conroe:

It seems to be that I’m on a strawberry kick lately. It’s not my fault they’re on sale and I love to have some fresh fruit so you’ll have to bare with me. I love simple quick desserts and this one falls in that category. I originally made this for our anniversary at the end of June telling my hubby it’s a berry-chocolate fool for 2 fools in love. He got a kick out it and I crossed my fingers he would like it. He did and he’s asked me to make it again since then so I think it’s a keeper. If you’re in a super hurry you can use the tub of whipped topping instead of making your own, but I preferred making it from scratch.

Congrats to our winner of the Fiber One 90 Calorie Brownies giveaway Nicole!!!
