Have you ever made a piñata or party decorations? I am loving the creativity and colors of artist/ designer duo Nicholas Andersen and Julie Ho. Joining together their love of communal celebration and craft-making they created CONFETTISYSTEM.
Their beautiful art transforms simple materials such as tissue paper, cardboard, and silk into interactive objects. I am taken back by the abstract shapes, texture, and variety of visual surfaces. Nut has already decided she wants a piñata for her fifth birthday, she’s even picked one out at the store… I only have ten months to persuade her to a more glamorous version. I’ll talk up the sparkle and rainbow colors.
In our own version of confetti, I bring you this weeks flavor, Organic Peanut Butter Ice-cream with M&M’s. We have had extra girl time this week, allowing us indulge in our own traditions; Quiche, pesto noodles, everything peanut butter and chocolate.
Organic Peanut Butter Ice-Cream with M&M’s (no raw eggs)
2 cups Organic Whipping Cream (I used Horizon)
3/4 cup half & half
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup Peanut butter M&M’s chopped
Mix creams and sugar, whisk in peanut butter until smooth. Freeze in an ice-cream maker per manufacture’s directions. The last two minutes add the candy. Remove and place in a air-tight container and continue freezing in your freezer.
Yum. Just the trick to keeping two little girls and their mommy happy!
