Welcome to the Retro Re-pin Party!

My day has been totally off because of the holiday weekend. I went to my Monday morning meetup group (where nobody showed up) and then forgot to make dinner tonight because hubby usually cooks on Mondays. Was today like that for any of you? 

Here’s what I’ve been up to this week:

These popsicles taste like a pomegranate pina colada and a mango lassi had a baby and stuck it in the freezer. Yum!

My entry for the Popsicle Recipe Challenge: Pomegranate Mango Colada Popsicles. I’ve got a link up below the popsicle recipe where you can share your own popsicle recipes too, so be sure and stop by!

 

The Retro Re-pin Party is a quick, weekly link party where you can share some of your older (or “retro”) pinned blog posts and give them some new exposure while growing your Pinterest reach through re-pins. 

Meet Your Hostesses!

This Pomegranate Mango Colada Popsicle is a cool, creamy, frozen treat combining the best summer drinks: the mango lassi and the pina colada with a dash of pomegranate for good measure. I’ve also got a link up for the popsicle recipe challenge and a Meal Plan Monday below the recipe!

First off, I’m not sure you’d want to wish anyone a Happy Memorial Day, but since today is Memorial Day, I do want to take a second to say thank you and give a big virtual hug to the families of the soldiers who have lost their lives protecting and serving our country. Our thoughts and prayers are with you today and always. I also ask you to take a moment to remember those we have lost and think on what they have sacrificed for you. Thank you, brave soldiers, for your sacrifice and I hope we do it justice with the way we live our lives. Go take your quick moment, and then come back for these popsicles.

Okay, popsicle time! When Jenna and I talked about the recipe challenge for May, I was definitely certain it would be all sunny and warm by now. Unfortunately, Colorado has been nothing but 50 degrees and pouring rain for the last 4 (?!) weeks, so it hasn’t quite been popsicle weather. Oh well! We can eat popsicles anyways right?

When I was coming up with popsicle ideas, I was inspired by a couple of my favorite summer beverages: the Mango Lassi and the Pina Colada. I always love the pretty half and half popsicles, so I thought it would be fun to make a two flavor popsicle. It’s kind of 3 popsicle recipes in one because you can decide if you want to make two flavor pops like this, swirl them… Continue reading

Welcome to the Retro Re-pin Party!

Tuesday again! It’s been a much calmer week this time around and I prefer it that way. Denver has been trying to imitate Seattle with its dreary rains, so I’ve been enjoying slow mornings with cups of coffee. My biggest goal for this week is to get my seedlings in the ground for my garden if it ever stops raining long enough to not be a mud puddle. What’s your goal for this week?

I’m finally back home and bringing you this week’s Meal Plan Monday featuring tons of veggies!

Meal Plan Monday #20 weekly printable meal plans with awesome mobile-friendly shopping lists!

I’m so happy to be back with y’all this week because it means life is returning to normal! After a two week trip to Texas and then an unexpected family emergency, I’ve been itching to get back in my kitchen and whip up some homemade food. I’m especially excited for a menu with tons of veggies. (I’ve eaten so much fast food lately – yuck!) This week’s meal plan doesn’t come with my usual recipe, but hubby is traveling for work this week, so I have tons of hours to cook up a storm in the kitchen for next week. (Anyone want to come taste-test for me?)

Also, a heads up: next Monday is another monthly recipe challenge with my friend Jenna at A Savory Feast. We will be hosting The Popsicle Challenge, so get your popsicle ideas (and your tastebuds) ready to go!
