Enjoy the end of summer with slices of cold and refreshing Bailey’s Irish Cream Pie. A simple dessert that is a make-ahead crowd pleaser.
Where did the summer go? When we moved to the new house earlier this summer, we moved to a new town. The kids have to switch schools and I just assumed that they would go back when everyone else does. Turns out I was wrong. I looked at the school calendar and we go back before Labor Day. I just lost a week of summer. I’m one of those moms that really doesn’t love sending her kids back to school. (School supplies though – can’t get enough.)
I like having them around and the freedom that summer brings. I like being able to linger longer over a morning cup of coffee, being able to go on an impromptu adventure or explore a new place, and afternoons at the pool. I like coming into the living room and seeing them reading on the couch or in the kitchen making a snack. I just like having them around.
The school day is long and factor in football practice and after school activities – we just don’t have a lot of time with them during the week. I’d be lying if I said that I didn’t like some of the structure my day has during the school year. Working from home is a lot harder over the summer, but I’d take having to put in some time in the office during the evening if it meant I could spend the day on the beach. I guess the point of this is that I’m not quite ready to say goodbye to summer just yet.
I’m going to keep summer alive for a while longer and I’m going to do that with cold slices of Bailey’s Irish Cream Pie. I always think of Bailey’s as being a winter drink, but I have to say, it is really refreshing in the summertime. And in pie form, it’s pretty amazing year-round. This is a great make-ahead dessert and great for end of summer parties and barbecues.
