My mom didn't want a cake. That was fine by me; I was tired from all that salad making. Let me share our favorite new dessert: Publix sherbet. They come in unusual flavors like this Peach Mango Passion, which tastes AMAZING. The best part? Quarts were on sale 4/$5. One quart would easily serve 2 scoops to 8 guests.
Tip: You can pre-scoop your sherbet before guests arrive. Just freeze individual scoops on waxed paper.
My other favorite sweet find: Aldi's Cream Wafer Rolls, at $1.99 a can. They look too rich to be so inexpensive. Then again, they taste too rich to be healthy! Break each roll into two pieces to accent each sherbet. One can contains about 30 wafer rolls.
