when i think of summer picnics
my mind wanders to
a scene from oklahoma
the one where they were raising money for the schoolhouse
the gals made picnic hampers
the pals bid on them
while we never actually saw the food
we were told
that under the kitchen cloth, the baskets overflowed with
food. so. good.
it made people break out in song
i wish my picnics were as magical
if i whipped this cream soda out of my hamper
hubster would whisk me away
surrey with fringe on top
white horses and all
strawberry cream soda
makes 1 serving
1 Tbs mashed strawberries or strawberry puree
1 Tbs cream
1/2 cup ice cold ginger ale
*summer strawberries are so sweet the don't need extra sugar, but if you like a really sweet soda, use at your discretion.
place the strawberries and cream in a glass and give it a good stir. add several ice cubes and then pour ginger ale to fill the glass. serve immediately.
