First time visiting an aquarium with our daughter, it's during our recent trip in Osaka. Greeted by a tunnel once entering. Enjoyed looking at variety of species available, magnificent views. We had a limited edition soft serve ice cream in the cafe. It's an unforgettable experience for us.
Fave Memory - by Susan Long - A memory of what I would have considered the dream diet when I was a kid! Pizza, chicken nuggets dipped in honey, ICEE, pop, gumdrops, orange slice candies, caramel cubes, pixie sticks, kid cereal, kool aid, buttery popcorn and soft serve ice cream. I could have lived on this stuff! While it's not my preference these days... the thought of these foods take me back to special treats and celebrations of my childhood!
One of Mom's many famous deserts was her individual Baked Alaskas. She usually made them with French Vanilla ice cream (Dad's favorite), but I thought it would be fun to pair the pineapple and coconut with raspberry ice cream instead.
The Pacific Northwest (USA) is a very sociable place; gatherings with friends and family outdoors are common. Lawn games, hikes and other outdoor activities feature. Here's a dessert treat I often make for such events - a cool refreshing, though messy, treat to be enjoyed outside. One of our very young family friends calls "cantaloupes" - the melons - "antelopes" - which brings all kinds of wordplay to my mind. So I've playfully adjusted the melon spelling accordingly because "Antelopes and Ice Cream" is too.... well, never mind.
When fresh strawberries and blueberries are in season here in the Pacific Northwest "Sloppy Milkshakes" is our preferred quick and easy treat. What makes these milkshakes "sloppy" is that no blending (or use of a blending machine) is required. Sometimes I only cut up the biggest strawberries and leave most of the berries whole.
