Garden Treasure

Ice cold Gold Peak green tea in my favorite tall glass.  With spearmint grown by me.  Now that's some summer lovin'.  Sorry Olivia and John... yours was great too :)
Americans, did you get your free 7-11 Slurpees yesterday?  Sophie and I did!  The poor manager at the location we went to had already gone through 2,000 cups by the time we arrived at 5:30 pm.  He was kind enough to be using his *small* size cups (versus the 7.5 ounce ones reserved for the free event).  The line was 20 deep when we got there, but it moved quickly.  There were easily 30 people behind us when we left.  Sophie opted for a mix of Berry-Burst and Alienation... some red and blue thing that was purple by the time we got into the car.  I went with good old cherry.  100%.  Now, had there been grape and/or banana, that would have been a different story.  Anyhoo, I digress.  If you missed it, mark you calender now for 7/11/2012- free Slurpees all day long!!  Wahooooooo!!

My husband told me about this, but I passed on the offer. I know this sounds truly un-American, but I don't think I ever had a Slurpee. I know--crazy huh? I much prefer your green tea in the picture!!!

Jealous! Of all of the above! I'm off to go make a great big pitcher of sweet tea and cut up a watermelon. :-)

LOL :o)

OK. Is slurpee a milkshake? My turn to be flumoxed :o) LOL

Sounds like you and Sophie had a good time though.

Your tea looks like the most thirst quenching drink I've seen in a long time!
Pour out another and I'll see ya' in ten minutes ;o) LOL

Sorry about that, Donna! You are on the right track with your thinking about Slurpees... they are frozen beverages, ice based versus milk. My Irish friend calls them "frozen cokes", and there are other brands like Slush Puppy and Icee. Here is a google link to Slurpee images: http://www.google.com/search?q=slurpee&hl=en&rls=com.microsoft:en-us&prmd=ivnsu&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ei=SMgcTtD8HcXEgQfx8djpCQ&ved=0CGcQsAQ&biw=1280&bih=627

By the way, your tea is ready and waiting for you ;)

Victoria- I am shocked! Never? Wow. I gotta tell ya kid- you're missing out on a tasty treat!

Oooo..We all love Slush Puppies!

I wonder if Slurpees will get here too! I love the name :o)

And yes, we call them frozen cokes too :o)
