The Swirls of Summer

Summer’s back, and so is raspberry swirl pound cake. In my excitement for this delicious seasonal treat I went looking for other swirly summer favorites. Here’s what I found:

1) Sweet summer skirts. With the sun coming out, it’s time to embrace my summer wardrobe and what’s more summery than a colorful skirt that swirls when you twirl.

2) My notebook. My notes are covered with doodles – swirl after swirl as I daydream about summer vacations, grilling on the barbeque and enjoying a drink on my patio while lounging in the sun.

3) Iced Starbucks Coffee with Milk. You know that moment when you pour milk into freshly brewed iced coffee? I love watching the coffee and milk dance together to create swirls of refreshing deliciousness in my cup.

4) A glass of wine. When the sun begins to go down after a long day, there’s nothing better than swirling a glass a wine while enjoying the summer sunset and great conversation.

What are you favorite swirly summer things?

    Thank you Starbucks! I guess I will still have to wait until June for the lycopene update

      This is a great pound cake. So much so you are currently advertising it at your NM locations. Well as long as you can get a piece of it before it runs out because, they are only sent 2 loaves per day. The stores have complained and to no avail. SO frustrating for customers and your staff having to explain why they dont have any available. So who dropped the ball coordinating marketing and providing the goods? Can we get on top of this, and get me some pound cake?

    The swirl of the ocean water that has been touched by our boat propeller: sometimes lazily, gently twirling behind us, like the wind around my sun hat; often churning and bubbling like too-quickly-poured espresso as we race to stay ahead of the water skier we are pulling behind. I love the swirls of summer!

    Debbie downer here. Just gotta say la Boulange chocolate croissants which i've consumed in san francisco don't compare with whoever makes them for Sacramento stores. The best ever!

    Does anyone know when la Boulange is going to be available to the rest of the country?

    Scrolling down the blog and seeing this makes me sad. I miss the moist deliciousness of proper cakes like these, rather than the dry, hard, reheated pucks Starbucks serves now.

    Then there's chocolate donuts, cranberry orange scones, big chocolate chunk cookies and other staples that are still on your menu but not in the stores. While I appreciate the added savory selection, they aren't very good. The only snacks I buy at starbucks these days are a ham breakfast sandwich or pretzel.
