Summertime and the living is easy. It's hot, hot outside and we're doing our best to keep cool. We've been doing lots of swimming and staying inside. This girl can't live without her AC. I'd much rather stay home than go out when it's 110. Blah. We've got a freezer full of popsicles to keep my family happy.
One thing we can't seem to get enough of this summer...watermelon. I buy the big ones and we snack on it throughout the week. I love how watermelon is so hydrating and low in sugar too. I made these watermelon strawberry slushies for the kids and they thought they were pretty fantastic! Fresh watermelon, frozen strawberries and ice. Simple. It would also be great frozen in popsicle molds (next on my list). So cool. So refreshing. So good.
