L's stitches were supposed to dissolve on their own in a week. Unfortunately they did not and they were starting to cause him some discomfort so I made an appointment to have them cut out yesterday. You can imagine how excited L was to have a doctor come at him again with a sharp object. Poor boy was not happy at all!!!
So I hope that you will not think less of me but I promised to make him a sweet treat if he would just try and be brave. He did try but his hair was caught in the stitches which caused him a bit of pain. By the time all of his stitches were out I was in need of a treat just as much as L was!!!
Chocolate Whipped Cream
1 cup heavy whipping cream, very cold
1/4 cup powdered sugar
2 tablespoon cocoa powder
1 metal bowl, place in freezer one hour before
In a small bowl combine the powdered sugar and cocoa. Mix well with a folk.
Pour cream into metal bowl. With an electric mixer whip cream until very soft peaks start to form. Then add the sugar and cocoa mixture, one tablespoon at a time. (You might not be able to add all of the mixture depending on the humidity. It was hot and humid in NoVa yesterday so we only added three tablespoons.) Keep whipping until firm peaks form. Enjoy!
L gave the recipe the thumbs up. I am happy to report that he is healing well and finally got the green light to swim again. I am not sure who was more over joyed to get that news. I already have the pool bag packed and ready to go!
