Very Cherry Milkshake

C — I love summer!

I love the heat. I love sweating in over 100 degree weather and not turning on the air conditioning. I love taking cold showers in the middle of the day and still not feeling refreshed. It’s 106 degrees and I am loving it! Yeah, I am pretty hard core about my summers. One of the reasons I love living in Sacramento.

Another thing I love about summers are milkshakes. When I was in college I would go out with my friends and have a burger, fries and milkshake daily. There was something about the blend of the salty fries and sweet, thick and creamy milkshake that got to me every time. I love the stuff. But, of course, I can’t eat that way all the time anymore.

One more thing I love about summer is that it’s cherry season! Cherries are here left and right. I use black cherry ice cream, lots of fresh cherries, and some milk. It’s so simple. Its 100 degrees out and the air conditioning isn’t on. A great cold beverage waiting to happen. Oh, it’s happening. Life is so good!
