This summer has been filled with so many fun outdoor activities I’m beside myself. I love it! We’ve been on hikes, we’ve been swimming, exploring, splash parks, playgrounds, and just plain enjoying the sights and sounds of nature. We’re making wonderful memories, but I’d be lying if I said the heat is on my favorite list. I’m more of a cooler weather person. Not winter, that’s too cold. More like decent spring and fall weather. In between the extremes. For this reason I like to partner my hot summer afternoons with a bit of a colder balance. Water balloon fights, playing in the sprinkler and ice cream.
I seriously just took a moment to sigh in satisfaction at the idea of ice cream.
Earlier this week I created the best milkshake I’ve ever made. I think I need an award for this one. Chocolate, caramel and pecans. That’s right, I made a Turtle Milkshake and I enjoyed every last bit of it.
Because it was so amazing, I decided I should share it with you. Why keep this golden recipe to myself. It needs to be enjoyed by the world.
