Color week and play, play, play!

Ok, not really playing, but I liked the way it contrasted with the title of yesterday’s post

Today’s Color Week color is green, and I thought instantly of this larger-than-life fixture in my family room:

It’s a bag of packing peanuts, taller than I am and several times as wide. Fun, eh?

We’re spending tomorrow evening at my in-laws’ house. They live down the street from where the fireworks are set off, so there’s always a nice easy view there. I want to bring a dessert, and it will probably just be a Cool & Easy Pie using strawberry Jello and garnished with these strawberries & blueberries in a shortbread crust. Anybody have any good dessert recipes using the berries that are just as easy (or easier) and high on the red, white & blue appeal? They actually look nice just plain like this, but I don’t think the strawberries are long for this world, and might do better in something that requires them to be mashed up

If I don’t blog tomorrow, Happy 4th of July!

  1. Oh, wow – that’s a lot of peanuts! 🙂

  2. Sure is, and unfortunately it’s smack in the middle of my family room – we have a bit of a “storage problem” at the moment 😉
