I was feeling a bit colorful yesterday when I saw this ice cream sundae coloring contest in Food Network magazine.
There’s been such a resurgence to the 70’s in the design world. You see it everywhere. Colors, textures and patterns exploding next to each other, macramé hangers holding long, unending trails of green. Bamboo.
That’s what inspires this sundae. It’s a tribute to the summers I remember as a kid from the 70’s. The summers of color and joy and freedom. Of being outside all day and at the drive-ins or front yard (capturing lightening bugs) at night.
It was gritty, too. Food wasn’t so pretty or gourmet. It was hotdogs and hamburgers and corn on the cob. I’m happy for those memories. I hope to make them for my own children. Less Martha Stewart. more Janis Joplin. OK a little easy on the Janis Joplin, but still.
