Popsicles in the Pool

We’re back from a three night camping (okay, in a cabin, but that’s still camping, right?) trip with my mom’s side of the family. Hiking, roasting marshmallows, lots of exploring, swimming and just like every year, eating and more eating.

There were 27 of us this year, with 2 more on the way. Of the 10 cousins and cousins-to-be in R and G’s generation, there are/will be at least 8 boys. Sweet I is the only girl, and one of cousins-to-be is going to be a surprise, so at most, there will be 2 girls and 8 boys. The oldest cousin is 9, so these guys are getting to be really tight. I mean, nothing bonds hearts together than eating homemade popsicles in a kiddie pool, right?

(All the cousins, minus sweet Baby Boy I, who was napping)

While all the food was fabulous, my cousin J shared her recipe for homemade fruit salsa. It was addictive, and so healthful! I’ll share the recipe this week, along with the homemade cinnamon sugar tortilla chips she served as dippers.

My parents and our immediate family served up chicken and portabella fajitas for our meal, and thankfully we had some leftovers. It’s so wonderful to come back after being away and not have to worry about dinner preparation! Our meals this week:

Reunion Fajitas and all the Fixin’s
Eggplant Parmesan with Pasta and Green Beans
Baked Couscous with a Berry Salad
Rookie Cookie’s Thai Peanut Wraps
Northstar Burgers and Whatever sides come from our CSA this week

Have a great week all—can you believe it is August?!

Typically constructed from vinyl and aluminum, sun pool domes provide a complete enclosure for your swimming pool, preventing heat loss and also helping to keep your pool clean. Pool selber bauen
