So today was a scorcher and trust me when I say this, the milkshakes from Simon’s Deli on Arthur Avenue in the Bronx never fail to cool me down. Of course, being a crazy Oreo fanatic, I had to get the cookies and cream milkshake but they have so many different flavors, including (but not limited to) Oreo [obviously], Nutella, and Snickers! If you are ever in the area, GO! And no, they are not paying me to advertise their store, I’m just a regular customer for these delicious milkshakes.

Today I walked across the Brooklyn Bridge. One of the many things I have always wanted to do. The view was absolutely breathtaking but I would say to watch out for the bikers because they ride fast and they’re very aggressive. They have their own side of the pathway but they still manage to be rude to the pedestrians. Regardless! It’s a definite must. If you live in the area and haven’t gone, you really should. It’s great exercise and an even better view!
Here’s an easy Italian Ice recipe:
3 cups halved strawberries or chopped pineapple
2 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
Blend the fruit, sugar, honey, and lemon juice with 2 cups ice in a food processor or blender until chunky.
Add another 1 cup ice and blend until completely smooth.
Pour mixture into shallow baking dish and freeze for 30 minutes.
Scrape ice with fork until slushy, then freeze until firm (approx. 2 more hours).
Scoop into paper cups to serve.
Nothing like a tupperware filled with strawberries and raspberries to freshen up on this hot hot day. The only thing that would make this combination better would be some berries of another color. Blueberries, perhaps? Too bad those were all eaten.
