Simple Sunday Treat: Chocolate Milkshake

Every now and then I become quite nostalgic for desserts and foods that remind me of when I was young, carefree and the biggest worry I had was which item I was going to play with at the playground at recess. For me, milkshakes happen to remind me of these times and also happen to be a childhood favorite.

A few weekends ago, I was reminded of milkshakes after I saw pink and white striped straws at Troolie in Portland. After I saw these, I decided that I must have them. And, naturally, I found plenty of other neat cards and assortments of goodies – including clever recipe cards for noting one’s favorites.

So, after a successful trip, I decided that the a must-do activity for a lazy Sunday would be an old fashioned milkshake complete with a pink and white striped straw while using my new set of recipe cards for the first time!

Although it’s nothing fancy, sometimes something this easy dressed up with a cute arrangement is the way to go!
