EP 36 - Welcome to summer and being in the GREEN! In order to escape the yellow we head to an area where things were just beginning to turn around. My co-host, Jen and I head up to State College for some dine-in eating, Trader Joe’s, ice cream, and light shopping for “inappropriate” grilling accessories. We discuss the day’s delights outdoors at my house as well as my new discission to become sober.
Something a little different, rather than a Signature Drink we have a Signature Treat. It's called a Dole Whip and to make your own you will need:
1 bag of frozen pineapple
I can of full fat coconut milk
2 TBSP of sugar or sugar substitute
Ice cream maker (optional, but recommended)
Whipped Cream (optional)
Blend all ingredients in a food processor or blender until smooth. You may want to soften the frozen pineapple chunks just a bit. Pour into ice cream maker and process for about 5 minutes. You may opt out of using the ice cream maker, but your whip will be less smooth. Freeze any leftovers for future serving. Top with whipped cream or enjoy plain.

The original pre-COVID episode is a deep dive into the Italian, Lancaster based, LUCA. Delicious food and drinks plus an atmosphere that’s hard to beat. Hoping to return in person some day soon, so until then, enjoy the conversation and company from a time when actually going out to eat was a real thing.

2 oz Aperol
1/2 oz Lime Juice
1 oz Soda or Mineral Water
