Inspired by the upcoming Summer Solstice, I've got a week's worth of summer-questions for you!
As the weather heats up and we spend more time outside, what summer-y treats do you like to eat? (Or drink?) Is it the same kind of treats you remember loving as a child? Or have your tastes changed over the years?
As for me . . . when I was a kid, my favorite thing was waiting to hear the (highly annoying) Mister Softee jingle as the ice cream truck rolled through the streets of my neighborhood. I loved getting "bomb pops" (pictured above; I think they're called "rocket pops" now) or a soft-serve twist cone or a Creamsicle. Other beloved summer treats of my childhood included burgers on the grill, watermelon slices, and my mom's Kool-Aid popsicles.
Some things never change . . . I still like ice cream. And watermelon. And though I don't eat meat much anymore, I do like an occasional burger on the grill. Not so much on the popsicles these days, although I will take a refreshing glass of Chardonnay or a cold gin and tonic instead!
How about YOU? I'd love to hear about your favorite summer treats . . . then and now!
