My two new favorites are, Vegan Ice Cream and Watermelon.
I know they don’t seem too exciting and they are both food related, but one thing you’ll come to learn is that, I am a foodie. There I said it, I am addicted to the food network and I love experimenting in the kitchen. Which is where the watermelon comes in.
But first, Vegan Ice Cream! Being lactose intolerant has left me longing for the days of creamy frozen treats, instead I am stuck with frozen sugar on a stick and let me tell you friends It is not the same! So you can imagine my delight when I was taking a drunken night stroll through the Market (Kensington) and noticed that Sadie’s was opening in the market and they were serving, VEGAN ICE CREAM. This is smaller “TO-GO” outlet compared to the Sadie’s Diner at Adelaide and Portland. Currently they only have 3 flavors of Tofutti brand ice cream but they will soon be adding a roster of there own homemade flavors as well. Oh they also have a juice bar. Check it out if you in the market, I’ll probably be found lurking there on hot days!
So on to my exciting adventures in the kitchen! Last Saturday was HOT, after finally getting the courage to leave the house around 2pm Myself and roommate Caro decided we would once again venture around the market. It wasn’t before long when we decided that it was too hot to wonder and we would pick up things to BBQ (meaning things for ME to BBQ) and head home. Caro decided she wanted a watermelon and as long as she was carrying it home I was fine with it. While playing hostess to a few of her friends they evening and manning the grill I got the idea to pureé some of the watermelon in the blender and make cocktails. Below is the recipe and let me say it was amazing! So perfect for summer.
In a blender pureé 2 cups cubed watermelon, you can add ice but I prefer to add fruit juice. About 1/4 cup.
Pour over 1/4 of gingerale & 1 oz vodka.
Everything tastes better in stemware!
