By the time it hits mid-July, I can sometimes get into that mid-summer funk. That’s right. I do. I’m not afraid to admit it. You know what I mean? I start to realize that in just over a month, summer will be over, and it’ll be back to shorter days, bulkier wardrobes – and no tan. (The horror!) But then I remember that it isn’t even until mid-July that something I totally equate with summer is available. Chelo’s Restaurant – Banana Berry Pie – is my jam. That’s right. It’s my absolute jam. It’s a Rhode Island tradition.
Chelo’s Restaurant – Banana Berry Pie
Here in Rhode Island we have Chelo’s Restaurants. And every summer they put their famous Banana Berry Pie on the menu. Now, let me preface this by telling you that I am a chocolate girl all the way. I live and breath chocolate. I could live on chocolate alone. CHOCOLATE RULES! I think you get the point.
But there is something about the juicy deliciousness of the blueberries and strawberries… the bananas mixed into the creamy banana mousse… the flaky pie crust… the whipped cream on top…
Oh yes, I indulged in my favorite summer treat last night.
It was, indeed, a mid-summer night’s dream.
What’s your favorite summer treat? As I got to Chelo’s Restaurant and stock up on my Banana Berry Pie – what do you do? What’s your Chelo’s Restaurant guilt pleasure wherever you are in the world? Love to know!
