Tastes of Summer: The Pool

19 Jun

The Tiny Diner and a VERY Blue Slushee



This is the first entry in my new series of posts that explore the theme of summer eating.

The quintessential summer activity, at least for me, is time at the pool. Whether I am splashing at a colleague's house pool or at the local community center, the best part of any summer's day happens in the water.

Previous to a few weeks ago, I would have said that the best blue thing to drink at a pool was clearly in the pool. After all, it is readily available and so inviting. I have consumed great quantities of this beverage, to the chagrin of The Chef.

After I was given this new blue beverage (pictured at right) at my first day at the public pool, I have to revise my rankings. While cloyingly sweet after about halfway through the cup, the first tastes are divine.
