The upside of cleaning out is finding wonderful, long forgotten items that have been buried deep in closets. Something like thifting in the comfort of your own home! I vaguely recall buying this vintage cotton at a quilt festival years ago, but coming across it was a nice surprise. Needless to say, it was quickly put on the *keep* shelf, no deliberation necessary!
Finally it looks like summer may be around the corner. With the warm weather comes a change in snack tastes and when my kids were were little, I used to make these popsicles all the time. They weren't big milk drinkers so this was one way to get some calcium into them. Molly recently asked me to send her the recipe so I thought I'd share it here...easy to make and delicious. In fact, now that I'm writing about them, I may have to make some for myself this week.
Chocolate Peanut Butter Popsicles
- 1/2 cup peanut butter
- 4 oz. plain yogurt
- 1/2 cup milk
- 2 TBLSP chocolate sauce (I use Hershey's)
- 2 TLSP sugar
Combine peanut butter and yogurt. Slowly blend in milk, then chocolate sauce and sugar, mixing well. Pour into popsicle molds, seal and freeze. Makes 6.
The forecast for the weekend is warm and sunny, perfect weather for our final post-winter yard cleanup and maybe some new plantings to spruce up the place. (Curb appeal, curb appeal, curb appeal.) I hope you all have a warm and sunny weekend, too. We deserve it after the last few months, don't we?
