Summer Time = Popsicle Time

by | Jun 17, 2008 | Recipes, Summer | 5 comments

I just LOVE Summer!! We pulled out our Popsicle Molds today, and made our first Popsicles. They were just plain old juice Popsicles, but I have added a few ingredients to my grocery list so we can try out a few new recipes this year including:

Banana Blueberry Swirl Popsicles

No Drip Popsicles

Vanilla Pudding Pops

Honeydew-Basil For me! 🙂

Oh! And I just love Mary Ellen’s idea to serve Smoothie Pops for breakfast! How fun is that?!?

Hope you are all enjoying Summer!

    You’ve inspired me to revisit this tradition.

    BTW, I would love to know how to achieve two side columns on blogspot. Your blog looks so fantastic, I thought it was a typepad until I took further note.

    Wow! I have never seen such an awesome mold before, too cool!

    I’ve bought a few Popsicle molds at the dollar store and the No Drip Popsicles recipe (with all it’s potential variations) is exactly what I want. Thanks!

    Erin — Thanks!! I really wanted a 3 column blog, but I didn’t want to have to pay for a typepad blog. Back in December, while hubby was off for Christmas I worked on changing the html code manually, which took forever. However, I think that now you can find many sites online that offer the code for free depending on which blogger template you are using. Just search for: blogger three column template
    Actually, here is a link that would probably have what you need:
    Good luck!

    Jennifer — my kids LOVE our molds! The boys prefer the rocket and the girls the star mold. 🙂 I love that the molds detach from the base and can store individually, and be washed washed and refilled one at a time!

    Stephanie — I am dying to try the No Drip Popsicle recipe too, especially after trying to clean two shirts from yesterday COVERED in chocolate! 🙂

Prayer of Mothers

Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.

A Little About Me

Hi! I'm Jessica, a Roman Catholic wife and home educating mother to our nine children. I was home educated myself, along with my eleven younger siblings. I have a special devotion to St. Therese, through whom I have been given much help and many blessings--the beautiful "Shower of Roses" that she has sent my way! Here I will record a few of the blessings I treasure. Please remember that what you see here is just a little glimpse at our lives, so please say a prayer for us, as we continue to strive for holiness.
