Mothers get to have a day every May, and in June fathers have the pleasure of celebrating too. One segment of our population that gets overlooked is our Seniors. They are our Grandmothers and Grandfathers – and they deserve to have a special day too! Upon hearing of the existence of national senior’s day, I thought it would be nice to surprise our local seniors at the retirement home a frosty treat in the middle of the afternoon. It was so nice to brighten up so many people’s day! I took JP out shopping the other evening to get what we needed to make these lovely cups.
Making them was a snap – All I did was use my mason jelly jar containers (they are a bargain at 9.99$ a dozen), filled them with a scoop of delicious TCBY frozen yogurt, tie some pretty baker’s twine around the lid and garnish with a chocolate baking chip. Voila! A perfect frosty treat that is as delicious as it is beautiful. #TCBYGrocery
Dosen’t baker’s twine make everything better?
Our local WalMart was carrying 2 different flavors – Classic Vanilla Bean and English Toffee Crunch. I snapped up both flavors because they both sounded delicious to me! I’m not very good at choosing one
ice cream frozen yogurt flavor! ;P
Ack! I keep calling it ice cream! Believe me, you would never know the difference if it wasn’t printed on the side of the container!
JP was such a little ham while visiting the retirement home. He was shy at first, but he became quite the star among the old folks. They each proceeded to tell me about their respective grandsons and granddaughters while we passed out the treat containers.
Children bring so much joy to the elderly, which is why I thought it would be a great idea to bring JP along. While eating, most everyone else thought it was ice cream too – until they were told what it was! TCBY was a huge hit! JP had fun helping with passing out the treats.
Luckily, I had some extra TCBY treats – like these…
Turns out, I needed them! The mason cups were such a hit that I had to tap into these vanilla frozen yogurt sandwiches, so everybody could have a treat. The residents were so appreciative that we stopped by – I think that serving up some TCBY may have been one of the more exciting events for these people. It felt nice to be that for them!
