Milk Shakes!

April 16, 2012

Some foods just make you happy. Maybe just because they taste so darn good, or maybe they’re tied to a memory, or a person. I remember as a kid, during the summer time, taking a Sunday drive to the DQ for ice cream. Sometimes a vanilla cone did the trick. Sometimes it was a hot fudge sundae with peanuts and a cherry on top. Sometimes a Strawberry Shake was calling my name.

Lots of memories tied to food as a kid. Certainly explains the need for Weight Watchers in my life, huh? Thank goodness I have learned that I can still have all those great things. Sometimes moderation is the key, and sometimes it’s learning how to have the same treat, but in a healthier way.

This is a favorite of mine that I am enjoying on the deck, in the sunshine, with my dogs, bringing back some great childhood memories.
