By the time it hits mid-July, I can sometimes get into that mid-summer funk.
You know what I mean? I start to realize that in just over a month, summer will be over, and it’ll be back to shorter days, bulkier wardrobes - and no tan. (The horror!)
But then I remember that it isn’t even until mid-July that something I totally equate with summer is available.
Here in Rhode Island we have Chelo’s restaurants. And every summer they put their famous Banana Berry Pie on the menu.
Now, let me preface this by telling you that I am a chocolate girl all the way. I live and breath chocolate. I could live on chocolate alone. CHOCOLATE RULES! I think you get the point.
But there is something about the juicy deliciousness of the blueberries and strawberries… the bananas mixed into the creamy banana mousse… the flaky pie crust… the whipped cream on top…
Oh yes, I indulged in my favorite summer treat last night.
It was, indeed, a mid-summer night’s dream.
