Oh the menues i planned ! none left hungry !! ...taking that whimsey into my adulthood i have interplayed my childhood ambitions and married them with my adulthood dreams ... Summertime has always been my favorite season . the days are long sweet and warm . the flavors fresh and robust . family gatherings by the lake , picnics and barbeques come fondly to mind. so i've put together a palatte of my favorite flavor sensations into a sure fire winner !
