I almost always make Sun Tea when it’s warm enough outside. Yesterday I found a recipe online that used 2 Family Size Lipton tea bags and 1 small tea bag of this Bigelow Constant Comment tea. I happened to have some because I like it, so I tried it yesterday and liked it a lot. There’s just barely a hint of the orange and spice.
How about some cold and healthy (sort of) popsicles?
Strawberry Yogurt Popsicles
1 small box Strawberry Jello mix
1 - cup water
1/2 - cup sugar
3 - cups plain yogurt
Pureed Strawberries, optional
Small Paper Cups & Popsicle Sticks
In a medium sized pot heat bring water to a boil. Stir in the flavored gelatin. Stir until dissolved then add sugar. Keep stirring until all the gelatin and sugar is dissolved. This may take about 3-5 minutes. Add yogurt a cup at a time and using a wire whisk mix until smooth adding the additional 2 cups of plain yogurt. If using pureed fruit add it now and mix well. Pour into Popsicle mold or cups and freeze for a minimum of 6 hours or overnight.
I put all the little cups in a 9x13 inch glass plan so it was easier to place in the freezer. You can add foil over the whole dish then poke holes to add the sticks into the cups. Or it is easier to get the sticks to stand up if you let the yogurt pops freeze for about 30 minutes. Continue to freeze for 6 hours or overnight.
You can experiment with different flavors of Jello and fresh pureed fruit.
I’m crocheting a baby sweater that I started yesterday. I think it’s going to be gigantic and fit a 10-year-old instead. That’s okay though. I’ll just stick it in the shop.
There’s not a thing happening in these parts. I’m hoping for a work-free day. I’d like to get out to Hobby Lobby and see if I can find some new hanging baskets for my back porch. Mine have about had it after two years of looking pretty. Now they just look ratty. Must be why they attracted the doves to nest there. I kind of expected them to come back and nest again, but they haven’t yet.
