Italian Ice Cream Sundae

I decided to stay in Odessa a few more days. We have been so busy working on catering jobs the past several days that we didn't have time to just sit back and enjoy each other. I brought my camera, but not my computer to attach it to, so I don't have any new photos. My cousin took this good picture of my sister, my brother and I. We have had some quality sibling time!

Em and I made these before I left town. It is so yummy!

Italian Ice Cream Sundae
3/4 cup marsala wine
2 Tbsp sugar
zest and juice of 1/2 a lemon
1/8 tsp nutmeg
8 strawberries
4 cookies - I used Lemon Snaps, they were perfect for this dish
vanilla ice cream
 Zest and juice lemon.
 In a small saucepan, mix sugar, wine, zest and juice.
 Cook while stirring until reduced by half.
 Put syrup in a dish and refrigerate for about an hour.
 Cut tops of strawberries and cut in quarters.
 Scoop ice cream into bowls.
 Top with strawberries and pour half the syrup over the ice cream.
 Crumble cookies over the top!
 Garnish with mint to make it pretty, pretty!
 This was delicious!
