I love fruit salad in summer, a bunch of fresh fruit drizzled with the juice of a lemon of two sometimes sprite because it does the same thing and adds a different flavor. The salad only lasts a day or two around but when it's gone i take the left over juice and pour it in a ice tray to freeze and use the cubes in my tea! yummm

Also we make our own icecream sandwiches, with chocolate graham crackers and a tub of whip cream (the strawberry is yummy on a summer afternoon). Break the big graham cracker in half and spoon some whip cream on one half, top with the other and wrap it in plastic wrap and throw it in the freezer. if you keep the whip cream in the freezer you can just spoon it on the graham crackers when you want it. we make a bunch in advance so we can have them anytime Cheesy

So few summer drinks?  I love mint juleps.  Or fresh-squeezed lemonade with mint.  In fact, in summer I think far less of solid sustenance and a lot more of liquid.

That sounds awesome. Before you put it on the grill do you wrap it in aluminum foil or anything?
Don't because you will not see if it is ready or not and it might burn.

I recommend the broiler, or grill. Wrap in foil and keep an eye on it. I think I remember it taking 15 minutes or so on a grill that had cooled a bit while eating [we always used charcoal] or just a few minutes under the broiler. Take it out of the heat, let the foil cool a minute and open it carefully to see if your chocolate/marshmallows/whatever are melted. If they are, you're done. If not, wrap back up and put the heat to it again.

Oooh, since I live in Brooklyn, my parents always go out to Chinatown on Sundays to get grocceries. They sell fresh conouts there in little fruit stands, and when my parents buy them, my dad drills an opening on the top, and then we pour the juice out. I usually pour them onto a circle ice[cube?] maker and then my dad chops the coconut in half. I cut the scraped out meat into small pieces and stick them in the tray too. Freeze them for something sooooo yummy! By the way, if you are a monty python fan, you can peel the white stuff out and use the shells for COCONUT CLAPPING! =]

frozen grapes, frozen citrus fruit, frozen watermelon (cut it into popsicle-like chunks, stick a fork/knife/spoon into it and freeze)
frozen jello! you can either let the jello cool in the refrigerator a little (and jello-tonize) and then stick it in the freezer, or freeze it right away. The first works better if you're planning on eating it as a slushy, otherwise you'd have a too unstable popsicle.

frozen dill pickle juice...mmm..as much as I pride myself in being a pickle lover, that might be crossing the line a little.  Cheesy I'll have to try that as soon as it gets warmer here.
