Family time and Sweet Treats

Monday evening, kind of a strange night to have a family dinner but when you find that one night when everyone is available you just have to go for it!

Granny and all the teenagers were over for a light dinner of Roasted Chicken, Jalapeño mashed potatoes and Caesar Salad.

But the highlight of the evening apart from the company wasn’t dinner, but dessert of course.

I had decided to make a Tres Leches with an Andy twist :-).

This of course was preplanned and I prepared most of it on Sunday afternoon.

Made my nice sponge butter cake, let it cool down and then poked it lots with a fork before I drenched it in a mixture of :

  • Evaporated Milk
  • Condensed Milk
  • Heavy Cream
  • and here comes the Andy twist – 1/2 cup of Amaretto Liquor

Then I topped it off with some whipped cream with just a tad of sugar and a little more Amaretto Liquor ❤ – We have now baptized it the Amaretto Tres Leches!

Happy to report that there were no dinner leftovers and not much of the dessert was left 🙂

Best part of the night was the after dinner silly chats at the table. Love love those precious moments.Very happy Mama, surrounded by a loving family!
