    I was going to say "almost any ice cream Blue Bell makes", but I think I found a new "favorite...a salad.

    My wife fixeda salad that was a hollowed out tomato filled with a tuna-anchovie mix with olive oil, onions and black pepper. The tomato was surrounded with cucumber slices and tomato pulp. Had toasted herb bread to put some of the stuffing on. What a great lunch on a hot day!

    Good wife. :)

    Tec, plant some tropic snow peaches and you won't have any use for the ice cream. I have to be careful about eating mine since I live on Elberta road and the peach by that name was discovered right up the road by my great-grandad. My dad comes over every once in a while and blows up at me. Acording to him Santa Rosa plums and Elberta offshoots are the only fruit wrth having.
    I also drool over green gage plums and any pluot but the crown jewels of my orchard are the apriums. The apriums are like candy. I start eating them before they even get fully ripe.

    Apriums.... never hear of those or pluot or gage plums. in my mind almost any kind of tree ripened fruit is difficult to beat... with or without the blue bell ice cream.

    HOME MADE ice cream with honey mixed into every drop, just like Has and Das.

    A finely grilled steak smothered in shroons saved in the freezer just for this time of year.

    Cool sady resting spots along the creek watching the wild life. Lately it has been a doe with a pair of speedy fawns.

    I was going to say "just about any flavor of Blue Bell ice creram", but then Jane fixed a summer salad for lunch. It was a hollowed out tomato filled with a mixture of tuna, chopped anchovies, chopped onion, olive oil, and black pepper. The tomato was surrounded with cucumber slices that were drizzled with the tomato pulp mixed with the anchovie oil. Toasted herb bread was served on the side.

    Yep, a new "favorite" summer treat.
