Summertime Eats

There's this Persian drink that I crave all the time. Its super refreshing in the summertime. Since I live in the middle of no where, sometimes I have to take matters into my own hands. So I made some myself and it turned pretty good. Basically its carbonated yogurt with mint and salt.

When I'm pregnant I want Persian food, but making it myself isn't quite the same as having dad's food. I tried this one the other day. I don't know what its called but its so good. Basmati rice, saffron, sauteed onions, raisins or dates, green lentils, and pistachios.

Another check off the summer list! Berry picking. We chose raspberries so we could have crepes with whipped cream and raspberries, raspberry smoothies, and raspberry ice cream.

This raspberry ice cream was heavenly.
Pureed bananas, raspberries, agave, plain yogurt, cocoa, and toasted nuts.

The King and I Thai restaurant in Edmonton has the most amazing salad rolls. They have basil, rice, prawns, and cilantro. I tried making my own but I used shrimp and added avocado but they just weren't the same.
