Welp, if you like ice cream, you'd like a milkshake. Funny, but in the article, Adam Reid says the trick to making a great strawberry shake is forget the strawberries and use strawberry ice cream, strawberry sorbet AND strawberry jam...with a little bit of lemon. Yeah, that'd do it. LOL

[2] well, i like ice cream and milk. but, only chocolate and skim milk. and i'm not a fan of lemons! also, i *love* root beer (barq's), but have never had a root beer float! oy and vey.

i just had a marimba session this week moved to next month and booked a last minute flight up to NY. it's real important to me to hand off my cd to the fam, in person. i need to get it to some industry folks up there, as well.

looks like i'm leaving the glorious 80 degree sunny weather for total cold crap...

C'mon, man. Ya gotta at least try it. When I was a kid, I didn't like milkshakes or ice cream sundaes, but I loved ice cream and I loved milk. Took me a while to realize they were one and the same. Same with spaghetti and lasagna (hated spaghetti, loved lasagna) and pork chops (no gravy!)

Today, I don't eat mac and cheese, but I tried it. Still not good enough for me. But I'll eat baked ziti for some strange reason. Give milkshakes a chance! It's just like eating Carvel ice cream with a straw, I swear!

[4] ooh, Cravel! (i call it that, 'coz i always crave it). thanks for reminding me. i'll be in NY the next coupla days. will have to go grab a cone!

btw, i love baked ziti and used to eat mac n cheese all the time, as a kid. veggie lasagna is excellent. i don't eat red meat...
