theme thursday - pink
Today pink is a colour associated with femininity, but this was not always the case. Until the 1940s pink was thought to be a very suitable shade for boys to wear, as it is related to red, which is a 'strong' colour. Blue, believed to be the 'weaker' colour was for girls!

Blushing Pink Soda
1 (8 ounce) can crushed unsweetened pineapple, drained
1/2 cup mashed fresh strawberries
1 quart strawberry soda, chilled and divided
1 quart vanilla ice cream, divided
Combine pineapple, strawberries, 1 cup strawberry soda and 1/2 cup vanilla ice cream in container of electric blender; process until mixture is smooth. Divide mixture evenly into 6 glasses. Add 1 scoop of ice cream and 1/2 cup strawberry soda to each glass. Garnish with strawberry fans, if desired.
Strawberry soda is not so easy to get hold of here in the UK, so I guess you could use cream soda and substitute strawberry ice cream for the vanilla. Yumm.
