Scrumptious Sunday

When I found this weekly meme, I knew I would have to participate - seriously, who doesn't want a little mealtime inspiration? And also, the word scrumptious just is not used nearly as much as it should be any more. It's a great word. So here goes my first Scrumptious Sunday, hosted by Mercedes Rocks:

Theme: Frozen Treats

This is a weekly meme for Sundays. A theme is given each week. You can include a list of the foods, original pictures, pictures you find, stories, how-to’s, recipes…Participants can also add what kind of scrumptious dinner they had on that/or previous Sunday. Please link to this site (this post) in your post and come back here and leave a comment that includes the link to your post so other participants can come visit your Scrumptious Sunday. Thanks.

Of course, since my husband manages the Dairy Queen, frozen treats are popular at my house. The Peanut Buster Parfait is one my my favorites - just such a classic bit of frozen goodness. Recently, I also enjoyed the Thin Mints Blizzard - I'm not usually a Thin Mint fan during Girl Scout Cookie time, but crunched up in a blizzard, it was a winner.

I think this is my favorite ADULT frozen treat:

Yummy, Yummy goodness. It's like dessert with a kick. What's your favorite frozen treat? We need to hurry, since summer is almost over and we don't have much time to enjoy them before the weather starts working against us....

You're a Dairy Queen?! :)
This is the first time I saw this Sunday meme.. and I didn't participate, but just visited your page through there.
I thought you did a great job. So cute how you added the adult root beer float, and recipe too! It sounds really good!!!
I love the peanut buster parfaits.. only without nuts. My husband hates ordering it like that for me though, so if he goes, I have to stick with a caramel sundae.

Welcome to Scrumptious Sunday! Glad to have ya! Participation is down these last few weeks-including me not posting either-oopsie!

I love the Peanut Buster Parfait! I order it with ice cream going in first...I always need a little bit of ice cream after eating that last layer of fudge and nuts-lol. Yummy!

I love Root Beer too-this sounds so refreshing!

Thanks so much for sharing! Have a great week!
