It’s hot y’all. Like, all of the sudden it’s gone from unseasonably cool to seasonably hot. And in Georgia, that means very very warm.
The ceiling fans have come on, and evenings on the porch are a must.
All of this hot weather has slowed down my baking considerably. It’s not that I’m not baking - I am, it’s just for the farmers market and I’ve already posted nearly all of those recipes here. And when I’m done with that, I just don’t feel like trying new recipes. I’m sure I’ll get over it soon, because I have a list of about a thousand things I want to try, but for now, I give you this embarrassingly simple recipe for delicious shaved ice.
I found this recipe a couple of weeks back in one of those recipe magazines the big food companies send out, the ones where every recipe uses name brand ingredients and everything is super simple and dumbed down a bit? Yeah, those. I’d never found a single thing that looked worth making until I found this. It just looked delicious.
And it was! I have a feeling I’ll be making this several more times this summer.

P.S. A HUGE thank you to everyone who left tips on pie crust! Now I've got a ton of recipes to try, I can't wait!
