The heat wave broke and here’s the ice

The heat wave broke today. It started last night with a rousing thunderstorm. Today it is much needed rain. We almost made our week. I tucked the ice cream recipes aside and decided to give you some recipes for something that will also get those 2 fruits in a day.

Cool off and meet those daily requirements plus you don’t have to go and pay $4.00 a box for 6 of them. I like that part. water

Every afternoon I would be on the porch with my pop in hand when I was a kid. No reason not to still do it. Just save some for the other kids ok?
