favourite summer foods from childhood

umbushi plum | Jan 7, 2009 01:12 PM

hello everyone, its summer down here in Australia and i'm indulging in lots of ice-cream and fresh mangos and watermelon. and since its so cold in the u.s at the moment i thought everyone might need some reminding of warmer times- so i am wondering what are suome of your favourite summer foods from childhood-

i have lots of memories of going to the beach with my school where i grew up (the school was lucky enough to be directly opposite the beach) we would have a big sausage sizzle everyone would line up for there sausege in sliced white bread with tomato sauce.

lots of ice-cream memories, wendys in the mall i would always get a cone with rainbow sprinkles or a cone with a lollie face and a flake. when we where at a normal ice-cream parlour my choice was simple rainbow in a waffle cone. and lastly my family would go in to the city (Melbourne) to a suburb called Carlton it has a really strong italian culture for the best gelato in the world my favoorite was cofee and lemon and my brothers would always let me have a lick of there baci yum!

i'm still only seventeen so childhood wasn't that long ago i'm having a delicious summer breakfast right now of fresh banna smoothie and a banna slpit (a little decadent but i'm still growing and evryone complains i look under-nourished) the split is complete with ice-cream cream nuts and choclate sauce and rainbow sprinkles! - i'm very interested to hear about evryone elses memories and childhood summer delights!
