When I tell people I can't eat chocolate, they're always really sorry for me; but I don't really _like_ chocolate. Will you think I'm very peculiar if I tell you that I'm not really all that mad about ice-cream either? But I do eat it occasionally. Not so much as a special treat; just to go with things on a hot day. I like floats, particularly. You know, when you plop a blob of ice cream into a glass of ginger ale or coca cola? That, I think is delicious.
Today, I made a very yummy salad dressing to go with some shrimp and crisp lettuce and cucumber. I just went into the garden and picked some chives and some sorrel and some fennel and some peppery cressy thing I have growing in with my lettuces and whizzed it all up with a spoonful of sour cream and a spoonful of mayonnaise and some buttermilk. The result was a lovely smooth cool green mixture perfect for a summer salad.
