Bay Bridge Toll plaza, although it's pretty crowded at the base of the incline Still Joe McConnell for cake you, buddy. Thank you, Joe. Traffic support comes from European sleep works. Time. Now, For a perspective, it's officially summer, and Debbie Duncan is going all in on a concoctions, she says, is summer in a glass. Here's her perspective. What does summer taste like? I thought I'd have to dig deep for my answer. Because many of the foods I remember from my 19 fifties and sixties childhood summers came out of a can or a freezer pouch, peaches, green beans, even corn. Be honest, those flavours kind of blended together. So did the taste of Cherries when they swam with other bits of so called fruit in a syrupy sauce poured out of a can and called fruit cocktail. My mid century space safe. Suburban family did not eat seasonally or locally, but we did have a station wagon. One of my dad's favorite things to do after dinner on summer evenings was Dr my brothers in May to the new Southern California drugstore Savon for ice Cream cones. Five cents for one, Scoop 10 for two. Had a feeling Mom didn't approve of dad eating ice cream. But when he was out with us, he indulged in his favorite flavor. Chocolate chip. I always ordered Strawberry two scoops of creamy strawberry ice cream melting over a sugar cone. I'd forgotten about that glorious taste of summer until a couple of weeks ago when I tested a recipe for something called strawberry milk, Cut farmers market strawberries up into a blender and Sprinkle with sugar. Stir them a few times over the next hour until nice and goopy. The puree until smooth. At good whole milk and buttermilk ster Let the mixture steep in the fridge overnight and oh, my goodness. The result is summer in a glass. It's two scoops of circa 1965. Save on strawberry ice cream eaten on a warm summer evening in the rear facing See that the station wagon Minus the cone. I've gone gluten free. It's undoubtedly healthier than its 19 sixties version. It is buttermilk. I make it for myself. I make it for my family. I will make it for anyone who comes through my kitchen for his long a strawberry season lasts Dropper and milk takes me back while also providing comfort. And I and most people I know can use a few.
