After digitally capturing each day initially in 2010 my Mom (Sis) and I (Lisa) decided to challenge ourselves again in 2011. We went with a different approach; captured whatever enticed us on a weekly basis. So here we are in 2012 deciding now just to keep to the daily challenge of a picture a day from now till whenever we get sick of doing it! There might get some journaling along with our digital images. Whatever we decide, we'll try to be entertaining. Sarcasm is guaranteed!

Day 363 - Sis
This is a white cake snowball that somehow still hasn't been eaten in our house. It reminds me of the 50's, when I was a kid, during the holiday season only, a tv commercial would play advertising this Flaming Snowball dessert. Oh I would just drool and wonder if I would ever have enough money to buy and eat one. I mean, vanilla ice cream covered in coconut with the festive frosting of holly, berries and a candle to light! So elegant looking when the lady in the commercial would serve it on a beautiful table with the lighted candle. Such a dream of mine and finally realized when I was an adult. Of course it couldn't meet my expectations or taste in desserts by the time I could afford it. Vanilla isn't a flavor I'm fond of and the the candle made it start to melt. There it was a dish of melted ice cream with coconut floating in it, another dream lost.
