Two Sisters, Serial #25 and Mandarin Orange Fluff

Posted on


Can you believe it?

We’re going to start this year off right. Let’s take the wholesome tang and sweetness of mandarin orange slices, the all-round nutrition (and digestive assist) of yogurt, the richness of whipped cream, throw in a little orange liqueur (if you’re not too hung over from last night), some dark chocolate shavings as a garnish and–BANG!!! (that’s R&R’s version of fireworks–ain’t it cute?)–we’re starting off the new year with a splash and style and, as always, a simple and scrumptious dessert for one or two.

Oh, and check out Two Sisters, Serial #25. It finds Brooke and Leah scheming to dance the debutante waltz together, even though it has never been done by a couple of the same sex in the century-long history of the event. Brooke plans to wear the tux and lead, since Leah is deaf and can’t hear the music. Sound confusing? Well, check out the previous twenty-four installments, at your leisure. You’ve got a whole new year to work with.

A blessed and happy new year to all!

(Now if I can just remember to get the year right on my checks . . . )

Serve immediately. Cover and refrigerate any leftovers.

Serves 2-3.
