We are in the middle of a particularly ornery "Indian Summer" here in the East. Yesterday was pushing 90 degrees and the next couple of days will be the same. Yesterday was also a parade day for local bands. Parade days mean uniform days. Uniform days mean polyester, lots of polyester.
Polyester + 90 degrees + blacktop = sweaty teenagers.
Sweaty teenagers need ice cream. It's just that simple. Do the math.
As my husband, Russell and I were escorting our daughter, Mia and her friend the 23 miles back to our car, through the crowd, up hill, in 90 degrees, over the blacktop, we overheard the following and I thought it would be a perfect blog.
*Please note, the measurements below are inaccurate. I call this "recipe" 2000 Calories of Goodness."
'So what you do is you put some ice cream in a blender.
Then, you put a bunch of cookies in the blender.
You add about a cup of heavy cream.
You make the blender go 'rrrrrrrrr!'
Then, you pour the milkshake into a tall glass and top it with some more whipped cream!
2000 Calories of Goodness! YUM!
That's it! It's that easy!
