ANNOUNCING: Change is part of life, and apparently, it's part of blogging, too. As of September 5, 2013, I'm merging The Virtual Goody Plate with Disco Mom Takes on the World and whatever else may henceforth spill from my fingertips (and kitchen), into one great new blog. I hope you'll join me there in exclaiming, "THIS IS AWESOMELAND."

Dessert Club - Frrrozen!
We've had a nice couple of weather days here, in the 80's with low humidity. But tomorrow it's supposed to start cranking up again to that serious southern heat natives and transplants alike dread so much. Excellent timing to post D.C.'s Frozen Night.
Maple Bacon Pops
Butterbeer Ice Cream Sandwiches
Berry Ice Cream Pie with Coconut Whipped Cream
Ice Cream Crunch Bars
Chocolate-Covered Key Lime Pie on a Stick
(even better than it sounds!!!)
Almost-Famous Chocolate Mousse Cake
Raspberry Ice Cream
Raspberry-Ginger Popsicles with Lemon Mousse Stripes
...and the winner of the evening, a molded confection of mango, coconut, blackberry, and blood orange...
Homemade Magic Shell!
Here's my plate. Unfortunately, take-home husband plates are hard to manage when we do Frozen Night, and believe me, I heard about it from several husbands, before and after. One of them even has an internal clock that resets itself so whenever I see him he tells me how many days until the next Dessert Club. Luckily for them, though sadly for us, Frozen Night only comes once a year.
