Fun day, and yummy dessert!

Yesterday I was so lucky to go to lunch with Jenny from Texas, Janae, and Amy! All of these wonderful gals are on my sidebar. We went to lunch at Bajio's, for sure a favorite! I had never met Jenny before! We do know some of same people though. It can be such a small world! What a great person!!! Jenny will be moving back to the Gilbert area in the near future! We for sure will all have to get together fun! I will post a pic. later. I am having some troubles with the pic. I took. Jenny, can I borrow your pic? :) I came home from a fun afternoon with the girls, and hopped in the pool. It is so hot! I then decided to run to the store to buy the ingredients to a dessert I have been wanting to try. I bought a great cookbook while I was in Midway. I found this recipe in it. I highly recommend it! So easy, and SOOO good! Turtle Dessert- 17 ice cream sandwiches, 1 jar caramel topping, 1 1/4 cup pecans, 1 12 oz. whipped topping, and 1 jar hot fudge. Place half of the ice cream bars on the bottom of a 9x13 baking dish. Spread evenly with caramel topping, and sprinkle with 1 cup pecans. Top with 2 cups whipped topping. Add remaining ice cream bars. Spread the remaining whipped topping evenly over whipped topping. Sprinkle remaining pecans on top. Cover, and freeze for at least 2 hours. Drizzle jar of hot fudge on top, before serving. This is seriously yum! I chose not to use the pecans last night. It can be made with or without.
