The Chicago river is dyed (bright!) green every year on St. Patrick's Day, and I wanted to take Ian & Adrianne to see it, but we wanted to avoid all the people (who started drinking at 6am) so we braved driving by the river and crowds instead. It was crazy, but so fun!
Then we headed back to my place to make It's It ice cream sandwiches!
The cookies are apparently a San Francisco classic and the recipe is from the second Babycakes cookbook (i.e. Yum).
And so delicious.
They are chocolate chip cookies, with mint ice cream (mint=green=st.patrick's day=festive!)
between them then they're dipped in chocolate.
We were pretty excited to eat them. :)
