TWiP: Close to Home

This Week in Pictures, Week 33, 2021

Unlike Week 33s past, the 2021 Week 33 did not involve any beachy day trips, weekend getaways, or intercontinental travel. I barely left the house. On the plus side, I did manage to procure a bouquet of zinnias, which inspired some photo play and kept me plenty entertained.

TWiP: Window Box Chicken

This Week in Pictures, Week 31, 2021

I don’t know how the time manages to pass so quickly, but it always does. It’s August already. I feel like the summer just started, and yet we’re only a few short weeks away from pumpkin latte season. I’m starting to feel a little desperate to make sure I’ve availed myself of enough summer joy while it’s still here.

TWiP: Instant Gratification

This Week in Pictures, Week 30, 2021

It’s been a little over two years since I bought my first instant camera, and in that time, I’ve taken a few photos that I love, and a whole lot of photos that are kind of terrible. I don’t know what keeps me plunking down my hard-earned cash on yet another pack of film, or worse, a whole new camera to love/hate, but here we are. As of this week, I’ve got four instant cameras and two and a half photo albums full of evidence of my misadventures. I do think, though, that I may have finally turned a corner with my latest purchase…

Strawberry-Lemonade Smoothies 2.0

Cooling off with strawberry smoothies

I originally posted about these slushy, delicious fruity drinks back in 2007.  Since then, I’ve made a few tiny changes (and taken some much nicer pictures, if we’re being honest here) and thought it was worth an update. We make these smoothies every year when the weather turns hot.  They’re like Summer in a Cup!

Ingredients

  • 1 (12 ounce) can frozen lemonade concentrate
  • 3 cups cold water
  • 1 pound frozen sliced strawberries

Strawberry-Lemonade Smoothie Ingredients

 

Directions

  1. In a large measuring cup or pitcher, stir together the lemonade concentrate and water.
  2. Place strawberries and about half of the lemonade into the container of a blender, and puree until smooth. Pour the rest of the lemonade into the blender and process until well-combined.
  3. Pour into frozen mugs and share immediately.

Yield: 4, plus a little extra

Cooling off with strawberry smoothies

Notes

  • As I get them in June at farmers markets and farm stands, I like to freeze fresh strawberries in one-pound smoothie-ready batches.
  • These are also good made exactly the same way, but with blueberries and limeade
