Growing up in Maine, we learned to thoroughly enjoy the warm summer weather when it presented itself. The summers could get hot, but it didn’t happen frequently. When they did, though, we made sure cool off with lots of frozen treats.
There was always lots of ice cream, much of it homemade. And plenty of milkshakes and slushy lemonade, too. What was really popular with the younger kids, though, were popsicles.
