Tell Me It’s Summer

It hit 90 degrees today. I’m not sure why I have the weird compulsion to document the weather on my blog…but I’ve always struggled with that ‘introductury sentence’ (or paragraph). Anyone remember that from fourth grade english?

So anyway, it was hot out, and the boys and I loved every second of it right down to the sunburned shoulders and spilled bubbles. We ate dinner late, on the deck, with the sprinklers going to cool us off. It was perfection.

Actually, the strawberry shortcake we devoured for dessert was perfection.

I used THIS recipe for the shortcakes, mixed strawberries and raspberries together with 1 tsp of sugar and topped it off with a dollop of vanilla ice cream. I’m typically more of a purist and prefer whipped cream for this desert, but tonight, the ice cream hit the spot.

Then we ran off the sugar in the sprinklers.

Not a bad Monday.

    It’s summer! Well, it isn’t but I like telling people what they want to hear. That strawberry dessert looks great.
