Hey <<First Name>>.
Canada Day was earlier this week (July 1st) and I celebrated it at a barbecue with a few friends. The food was great and so was a drink I tried called a "Rocket".
I had no clue what a Rocket was until a buddy of mine mixed one for me. It’s simply beer mixed with Smirnoff Ice - really refreshing way to enjoy a summertime beer!
Favorite Summer Dessert
I also have a new dessert to enjoy this summer - Homemade Lemon Gelato. When I was in Italy, I often finished the day with a bowl of frozen lemon gelato! So I was pretty excited on Thursday when I learned how to create an easy homemade version.
To make it, you simply whisk together lemon juice, lemon zest and sugar in a bowl with a pinch of salt. Then you whisk in low-fat plain yogurt to make it creamy in a healthy sort of way.
Gelato is often stored in containers that look like large loaf pans, so I followed suit and used my regular-sized loaf pan to freeze my lemon-yogurt mixture. The loaf pan spreads the mixture out in a thin layer which helps it freeze quickly. Once frozen it’s easy to access with an ice cream scoop (see pic and recipe below).
As refreshing as a "Rocket" with less unpleasant side effects if I happen to overdo it.
Hope the sun is shining where you are this weekend! Thanks for reading and I'll see you next Friday!
