I know I spent last summer telling you how much I love BLT's. I still do. I've even had a BLT for breakfast this summer. Unfortunately, between the heat and a tomato loving fox in the neighborhood, we've had very few tomatoes on Easy Street. Thankfully, friends have given us their surplus, so there hasn't been a shortage of BLT's for me!
Another favorite food this summer is garden fresh, too. I love cucumbers, onions, and vinegar with a bit of sugar and salt and pepper. I could easily eat a cucumber a night! This dish has become a staple of our evening meals.
So that's it for the fresh vegetables! I've also discovered this:
I know Dairy Queen Blizzards have been around for a long time. I have always thought their small Blizzards were too much. I usually felt a little sick after that much ice cream. At last, they have come out with a Mini Blizzard!
Sonic used to have a Junior Banana Split. It was so tiny and the perfect price and size. They did away with it. Darn it. (I'm feeling a writing campaign needs to begin!!) Wendy's has a Junior Frosty. Again, it is advertised for kids, but is really a perfect size for adults. K and L love McDonald's little reduced fat ice cream cones. I hate cones, so they don't appeal to me. So there are some healthier options out there if you are looking for an ice cream treat this summer!
There you have it, some of this Friday's summer favorites! Just writing about all this food makes me feel the need to go for a run!
