Frozen delights

Ice-cream with layers of biscuits dipped in banana liqueur. A special dessert for this Shabbat, which just happens to be my 25-th birthday. How time flies! When I first started writing on this blog, I was a young single woman, and now I'm due with my second child in just under two months. Life has sure been interesting these last couple of years!

Sheila, I'm sincerely puzzled as to what you mean about "staying strong in Jesus". It explicitly says on my profile I'm Jewish.

Dear Anna,

Happy 25th Birthday! Really, time goes by so fast. I was a single woman too when I first read your blog a few years back and feel like I'm growing together with you. Now I'm married with a one year old. :)

Wishing you abundance of blessings and joy for this upcoming year. Hope you and your family (and the lil baby in the belly) are doing healthy and happy!

Always,
W

Happy birthday, Anna! I've loved "following" you the past couple of years (I can't believe it's been that long, either!).

Serena said...

Happy birthday Anna! It's amazing to see how your life has changed in the past few years!

Tia said...

A very happy birthday to you, and many happy returns of the day!

Jessica said...

Just curious, but is your Birthday, the friday (27 Tammuz on your calendar) or Satuday, 28 Tammuz? Mine is on Tammuz 28. ( July 10th for the american readers that we are)
I feel honored to have my 22nd birthday on Shabbat this year!
Happy birthday to you!

Love your Blog!

Dear Anna, I enjoy your writings. I wish you a happy birthday also. I have a question. You were puzzled by Sheila's comment about staying strong in Jesus and how that fits with being Jewish. I wonder what you believe about Jesus? He says "I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me." John 14:6
Thank you for your time.
Joanna

Mrs. Anna T said...

Joanna,

It's no rocket science what Jews believe about Jesus.

If in doubt, Google "Jews for Judaism."

Mrs. Anna T said...

The only reason I allowed Sheila's comment was because I was sure she isn't a missionary but just perhaps misguided about Jews in general or my beliefs in particular. Missionary comments get deleted from my blog nearly every day.

Dear Mrs. Anna T,

Happy Birthday.
It has been a pleasure sharing this past year with you through your blog.

Your dessert looks yummy. Can you use something other than a liqueur?

Mrs. Anna T said...

Mrs. Kim, for dipping the biscuits you could easily use something else, such as milk or coffee. For the ice-cream itself, alcohol makes ice-cream softer so I usually don't forgo it, especially as the quantities are so small. However you could just prepare it without the liqueur.
