Darling fabric line! Must finish some UFOs in order to make room! Hmmm...my favorite summer treat is picking supper from the garden.

Emma said...

Strawberry shortcake, made with fresh strawberries from the garden (mixed with a touch of sugar to bring out the juice), on angel food cake with homemade whipped cream (cream with a splash of vanilla and powdered sugar to taste). I'm drooling just thinking about it.

Maria said...

Chocolate, chocolate and allways chocolate!!!

Waffles with ice cream and raspberry sauce -- yumm!! Of course I do sneak it into my winter menu now and then too.

my fave summer treat is that fresh grilled hamburger after a float down the creek.....mmmm, tastes like summer! :)

strawberry shortcake...

Susan said...

egg custard snowball with marshmallow topping! YUM!!

Keep Stitchin' said...

Oooh,so many to chose from! But I honestly have to say that I absolutely love the abundance of fresh produce more than anything else... my next 'splurge' treat would have to be angel food cake with strawberries and cream.

LeAnn said...

Drumsticks with caramel inside. Yum yum!

Vivian said...

Oh I haven't had this in forever...BDI (shout out to Winnipeg!!!) had wonderful frozen bananas on a stick, dipped in chocolate and rolled in nuts. Oh YUM!! Perfect for those that can't indulge with lactose-filled ice cream treats.

Summer Killebrew said...

Love this line...it just begs to be made into something that will shine.

My favorite summer treat is the chocolate soft serve ice cream from Dairy Queen. They only serve it during the summer months and it's so creamy and yummy.

Katie B. said...

Yum! Drumsticks!

tracy_a said...

Such a cute mix of colors/prints! I have a standard soft-ice cream order - twist (vanilla-chocolate) cone with chocolate sprinkles, please. The seasonal stands have opened - yay! But my really really favorite is fresh strawberries - cannot wait for them to come in locally!

MamaLiza said...

I would say watermelon...but the hubby and I have decided that that is the one thing I'm allowed to splurge on all year round. Yay!

Funnel cakes is my answer...takes me back to when I was a kid. Yummy!

Jodi Ingram said...

Beautiful fabric line! But my favorite summer treat would have to be a nice, home-grown tomato. I just planted 9 different varieties of tomato plants! The salsa made from home-grown tomatoes is divine!

Christina D said...

Katie said...

Strawberries with a little sugar or fresh whipped cream!

bountiful quilter said...

There is a local hamburger joint in town that has been here forever. Their hamburgers are allright but they make these popsicles called Astro bars that are amazing. My favorite flavors are peach and lime. The sun finally came out today so I think I will go pick up a dozen.

Laura said...

Chilly Willies! Or Freezy Pops? I'm not sure what their actual name is, but it's the popsicles that are in tube bags. Does this even make sense?

amber said...

i love rootbeer floats

Wendy said...

Oh my yes, that fabric screams delish!
I love mango smoothies for a yummo summer drink.

Debra said...

An ice cold beer does it for me!

Mary Grace McNamara said...

How about homegrown strawberries picked right off the vine, rinsed with the hose and eaten still warm from the sun? Oh yeah, that's summer! Of course all this is done with a pack of giggling kids dripping strawberry juice down their chins!

MGM

Kathleen Grace said...

Fresh Dark cherries, home made pesto, ice tea at sunset, and that fabric is gorgeous! Love the crisp prints and the colors!

Ice cold pickle juice in those little dixie cups just like when I was a kid!

How about putting some homemade ice cream into a waffle cone. That sounds pretty divine to me.

Betty said...

Summer = strawberries!!!
Fresh, delicious, grown outside (not in a greenhouse when they only taste of water).
Then you don't really need cream.
Well, maybe just a (tea or table) spoonful ...

Rachel said...

Home made ice cream!

Megan said...

Oh gah, it's so tough to choose just one. It's probably a tie between 1) homemade poundcake with homemade ice cream and peaches or 2) fruit pizza with strawberries, kiwi, and blueberries.

audrey said...

I love true italian ice in the summer! SOOOOO good and so light!

Debbie said...

I always say: just hand over the chocolate and nobody gets hurt!! :-)

I love strawberry shortcake. Fresh local strawberries, washed, cut up, some sugar to make them juicy - a soft warm and slightly sweet shortcake (biscuit) cut in two with cool strawberries placed between the halved biscuit, more strawberries drizzled on the top and THEN a large dollop of sweet cold whipped cream. YUM!
