Happy Fourth of July! Our celebration started early...
Red, White and Boom was last night. SPH's former internship employer had reserved COSI downtown for a dinner and cocktail party on the river before the fireworks. It was great, the kids had a blast and we had front row seats for the parade. Here are some pictures:
Red, White and Blueberry Pops (or, "wow-these-pops-have-loads-of-good-stuff-instead-of-UFIs pops")
1/2 cup fresh blueberries
2 t sugar
1 60z container fat free organic plain yogurt
juice from half a lime or lemon
1 T sugar
8 large strawberries
Blend the blueberries and sugar, pour into popsicles molds, filling a third full, and place in popsicle sticks. Pop into the freezer for about 30 minutes. Mix yogurt, lime or lemon juice and sugar, pour onto top of the blueberries, so the molds are 2/3 full. Freeze 30 minutes. Blend strawberries and pour again. Let freeze overnight or for several hours.
R, feeling especially patriotic as he eats his popsicle. I mean, could he be any more festive? Even his eyes were red, white and blue before I fixed the red eye in the original picture.
Have a wonderful 4th,
