I think we finally hit some summer weather temps in the 80's today! Not complaining here at all considering the record breaking high heat going on in most of the US right now. I am enjoying some fresh raspberry lemonade with mint while trying to decide on what to make or do with the 7 pounds of freshly picked raspberries and strawberries I picked earlier. (See one of my favorite Berry treats below)

I am also trying to figure out ways to use/store the large amounts of mint that grows like weeds in my backyard! I have dried some for use in the fall/winter and I love it in my lemonade, summer fruit salads, and even use it with lavender to add to my bath for a relaxing soak.

What are some of your Favorite Summer Flavors?

Shana's Easy Frozen Berry Cream
  • Frozen berries ( I like a mix of strawberries, raspberries & blueberries) approx 1 cup
  • Sugar - approx. 2 tsp
  • Half-n-half Milk, Whole or Lowfat milk, or non-dairy such as soy, almond or coconut milk - approx 1/2 cup
Put all in bowl and break up with spoon until desired consistency. (I like the way the milk freezes to the frozen berries and creates a delightful frozen treat.) Enjoy!!

FREE Lego Club Magazine and Events Info. for Kids

My son sure looks forward each month to receiving his Lego Club Magazine in the mail! It is a FREE 2 year Subscription he enjoys with great building ideas and upcoming Lego features. Yesterday he attended a Free Lego Speed Building Event at our local Lego Store. (See Pic. below) This kind of information is advertised as well in the magazine, although we just happened to be there recently at the right time as a treat for his week long hard working of goals he personally acheived.
