Whole Lotta Shakin’ Going On
Yesterday here in Southern California we had an earthquake. They happen here randomly and without any advance notice. Still, I’m not used to them at all.
In fact, to be honest, I don’t think I’ll ever be used to having the earth tremble and having to sit impotently until it’s all over.
And this earthquake was a long one! And strong! 7.2 on the Richter Scale. It lasted almost a full minute. There was no damage. No dishes were shattered or lives threatened. It was just supremely unpleasant.
So here it is the day after, and I’m still feeling unsettled and bothered by every creak in our house and jumping every time a truck rolls by.
I guess every state has some kind of weather or drawback, so I’m not likely to move anytime soon. So, because I am committed to staying in California, I guess shaking will always be a part of my life.
But if it has to be a shake, make mine Salted Caramel. =D
Here’s the recipe….
Salted Caramel Milkshake
- 1 pint vanilla ice cream
- 1/4 cup caramel sauce (Sure, you can call it “caramel sauce.” But I like to call it by its real name: Dulce de Leche.)
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1 tbsp. salt
Combine all ingredients in a blender:
Add the caramel sauce:
Divide into two glasses and top with whipped cream. It just doesn’t get any better than this…
I’m okay now. Really I am. But I hear that Tennessee is nice this time of year….
