This Fourth of July, we had a ‘Murica pool party at our house.
I started by looking for some red, white and blue food on Pinterest.
I also got some pretty sweet balloons from Publix.
Watermelon, raspberries, cherries and strawberries were the red.
Blueberries were the blue.
And the white was yogurt-covered pretzels.
I made some brownies and used a star-shaped cookie cutter to cut them out and then drizzled them with some red frosting and blue sprinkles.
I also used the cookie cutter for the watermelon.
For our drinks, we made Peach Iced Tea Whiskey from Tasty and it was delicious!
Now that the Fourth of July craziness is all over, I’m back on my normal clean eating regime, which includes yummy recipes like this one!
When I used to eat oatmeal, it was full of brown sugar and maple syrup and it was mostly instant and from a packet.
I wish I knew how to make oatmeal like this back when I was breastfeeding!
Now, I make it with tons of fresh fruit, nuts and other yumminess and I don’t even miss that sugary sweet instant nonsense from before!
One of the things I didn’t touch on too much in my last post about Camping with Kids was food
And let’s face it…
Toddlers NEED food…
They get HANGRY…
So, here’s what we packed for our weekend trip (we had a refrigerator, also):
I’m a day (or two) late and a dollar short, but we just finished all of our St. Patrick’s Day activities!
We started out with a very green breakfast. These are Mini De Wafelbakkers Frozen Pancakes I got from the frozen food aisle at Publix. I microwaved them for about 30 seconds, topped with whipped cream and Airhead Xtremes Rainbow. I had to cut the Airhead a little to get it to bend correctly.
Then, we had some Lucky Charms (my husband was more excited than the kids!) and some green milk I dyed with green food coloring.
