Today's #weekendeats chat on Twitter left me wishing for a serious summer vacation, with pictures of ice cream sandwiches, popsicles and refreshing cocktails fit for lazy days by the pool. Here's a link to 30 beat the heat no-bake dessert recipes from the Los Angeles Times test kitchen and a look at some of today's chat highlights:
Marian Bacol-Uba, a.k.a. @marianthefoodie on Twitter shared a picture of a mound of mango shaved ice, Aliya LeeKong, a.k.a. @aliyaleekong on Twitter shared a recipe for cherry pino-paletas (cherry and red wine popsicles) and Michelle Jenkins, a.k.a. @mkparkinson on Twitter shared a recipe for gluten-free oatmeal peanut butter chocolate chip cookie ice cream sandwiches shown in the picture above. Jenkins used the recipe from the back of the bag of Trader Joe's rolled oats to make the cookies, then added a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
@MyMansBelly shared a strawberry shrub and strawberry shrub cocktail recipe, Stephanie Arsenault, a.k.a. @globaldish on Twitter tweeted her recipe for a light lemon mint tea cocktail with vodka and @daisyt13 shared a picture of her recent strawberry mojito using an altered L.A. Times SOS recipe with rhubarb in place of soda.
Other notable shares included a Tomato fillo tart from Jenny Johnson, a.k.a. @VintageSubarCB on twitter. Johnson proudly proclaimed she is no longer a "fillo virgin." Giving foie a last hurrah was the One More Bite blog, @onemorebiteblog on Twitter, who shared a photo of veal tongue, smoked foie gras, crab apple and dehydrated pumpernickle toasts from Animal restaurant.
After the chat, we ask people to upload pictures of their #weekendeats to our What did you eat this weekend? photo gallery. We'll feature some of the photos here on Daily Dish, so be sure to check back for more #weekendeats and #foodporn fun throughout the week.
Hope to see everyone next Monday morning on Twitter! It's sure to be a drool-worthy good time.
