Put closing into the trolley and cross immediately home. Never bring about a picnic unless you’ve got a manner of preserving it very bloodless.
As an easy dessert, ice cream is difficult to overcome. Add summertime fruits for additional vitamins and fiber, and a shortbread or wafer biscuit for panache.
