sunflower_sue said:"1/2 cup sugar (Splenda for the death conscious)"There. I fixed it for you, sue. Sugar substitutes = death.A friend of mine works at a restaurant in Ann Arbor, and during one of the very hot, humid days of the recent Ann Arbor Art Fair, she had two women come in and order iced tea with their meal ... and between the two of them, they proceeded to consume 30 packets of Splenda. Isn't that a fatal dose?

sgt, only sugar for you! (and I think 16 packets of sweetener per consumer is actually the lethal dose)monkeyspunk, use the real whipping cream and see what you get. Scoopable, thick, coat the roof of your mouth ice creamy goodness. I don't think you could make this in a blender (much too thick) but you could try. I'm not stoppin ya. Call me when it's ready and I'll help you finish it.

If I have access to it: Aviator gin martini. (Aviator is this awesome gin from Oregon. I have yet to find it here). Barring that, I'm with prospector: Oatmeal stout from Free State.

Drumsticks or Oreo Blizzards (since none of the DQ's seem to make Reese's Pieces Blizzards anymore - although I don't think any of the Lawrence DQ's had them to begin with).

jonas, you need to come on over and enjoy a Bruichladdich and a Cohiba and chill out...

(less than) 5 minute ice cream:10 oz frozen fruit (strawberries work nicely)1/2 cup sugar (Splenda for the diet conscious)2/3 cup cream (half and half or yogurt also works...just add a bit of milk to the yogurt to thin it)process fruit and sugar in food processor. Slowly add cream. Viola!Eat! Enjoy!I will make this concoction to share with you, jonas. You will again have hope. Life will have meaning.

Fudgesicles. Used to love orange slushies from DQ and had them nearly every evening after swimming while staying with grandparents. Then got brain freeze and rode my bike into a house. LOL! Also love root beer floats with chocolate ice cream; a cup of Sonic ice; lemonberry slush - straight up. And those Tupperward Kool-Aid popsicles were awesome! Honestly though, I don't think there's much that beats a glass of iced water.

Sherbet floats. Use Fresca or your favorite Lemon-lime drink. Add a scoop or two of frozen lime or rainbow sherbert. Cool;refreshing; kids and adults alike love it!
