Good Lord it's been 5 weeks since I posted an entry here. Things are very much amiss in the cooking department because it is summer! And that means I keep suppers as simple as possible. If I cook, it's outdoors on the gas grill (which recently was replaced with a new model because the old one was finally beyond all repair).

My grilling consists of chicken wings, or boneless breasts; London broil, all kinds of fish, both fillets and steak cut; occasionally pork chops, and rarely hamburgers and hot dogs.

Corn is in season, so I buy it fresh and boil up a couple ears, fix a small salad, and stick a fork in it.

My love of baking goes on a hiatus until those crisp days of fall when I can fire up the oven and fill the house with the scent of baked treats.

Instead, I'll give you a recipe for a favorite summer treat. (minimal heat involved)



AUTHENTIC ITALIAN LEMON ICE (or LIME, by substituting limes/lime juice-- DOH!)

2 c. water
1 c. lemon juice (use juice of 2 lemons plus enough reconstituted juice to yield 1 c.)
Zest of 2 lemons, cut very fine
2/3 c. sugar


Heat water and sugar to boiling. Simmer for 5 additional minutes. Remove from heat; stir in lemon juice and zest. Cool to room temperature. Divide mixture evenly among three tubs. Freezer until firm. Shave; scoop into small dixie type paper cups and serve with a spoon or straw. May wish to garnish with a small thin slice of lemon.

Orange flavor would also work.
