How are you celebrating National Blueberry Popsicle day? (2014. -09-02) Dinner!

That's right, folks, today is National Blueberry Popsicle day in case you missed marking it on your calendars. It is unbearably humid right now (or maybe it is just another hot flash). I can't bear the idea of turning on the stove or eating anything hot...besides, after that big breakfast, I'm still not very hungry. Thinking some carrot, cucumber, blanched green beans with some greek yogurt will hit the spot. I'm not going out to buy a blueberry popsicle.

No blueberry Popsicle here either. I've got some sausage jambalaya going right now. It's quick and easy after the first day back at school! The student I work with has an interesting schedule this year which will keep me busy!

I could give up chocolate but I'm no quitter!

I made pasta with no-cook tomato sauce pan-roasted chicken breast and crostini with homemade pesto, chopped garden tomatoes and sprinkled with Parmesan cheese.

Stuffed Peppers made with garden peppers and tomatoes! Mashed potatoes, and peach cobbler.
A little bit Ginger. A little bit Mary Ann.

A big bottle of wine here tonight with a big bowl of outrageously good guacamole. Because of continued dental issues, one of us ate it with chips, the other with a spoon.

why wouldn't they make blueberry popsicle day during blueberry season? does it take that long for them to freeze?

i just bought some fantastic smelling mangoes and jersey peaches.

i could smell how sweet the peaches were from 5 feet away, and the mangoes had this wonderfully sweet sort of piney aroma - usually a good sgn for maaahngoes.

maybe i'll make some peach pops tomorrow.
The past is gone it's all been said.
So here's to what the future brings,
I know tomorrow you'll find better things

I don't believe I've ever seen or eaten a blueberry Popsicle, but it sounds good.

We had poke chops and sweet corn on the grill, followed by a nice big hunk of fresh cantaloupe for dessert. You just can't beat the taste of cantaloupe when it's in season.
