I don't know about where you are, but here in Michigan we've had a pretty toasty summer so far. Summer..........one of my favorite times of the year. The time when I can go to Erma's and get frozen custard! I LOVE frozen custard - but it has to be Erma's. Seriously, if it's not Erma's, it's not real frozen custard.
