Did you know that every year there is a special week of the summer called Popsicle Week
? Yeah, me neither! In my first full week of summer I have spent my time reading, relaxing, attempting
to work out, and scouring the internet for new food and fashion blogs. Yes folks, I do more than just read children's lit blogs.
In my web-surfing, I came upon two blogs that deserve a shout out. The first is Wit & Vinegar
. That's the blog that hosts Popsicle Week every year. Billy, the writer, invites other bloggers to submit their very own popsicle recipes for one special week. This year there were over 40 popsicles!!! Take a look, some might look familiar.
|Mmmmm, lots o' berries!|
|White pants + lots o' berries = apron required|
I found this week's popsicle via Wit & Vinegar. Stephanie, over at I Am A Food Blog
, submitted these fruity treats. Last week's Frozen Lemon Mousse Pops
were very rich, although they are now in the lead for favorite popsicles, so Geoff requested something with strawberries. Thank you Popsicle Week for having what I needed!
|Blend all that red fruit|
|Pour it in molds|
These were the simplest popsicles to make. Dump some raspberries into a blender. Add sliced strawberries. Put in watermelon. Add 1/4 cup of sugar. Blend. You add some more sliced fruit after blending so your popsicles will have fruit chunks. My friend suggested I add something like mint. I said meh, but I actually think that might have been good. Oh well! If you try it let me know!
I cheated and bought already chopped watermelon. I mean, I was wearing white pants for heaven's sake...a girl has to take care of herself. I whipped these bad boys together and they are currently doing their thang in the freezer.

relaxin' on the back porch.
Here is the full recipe from This Is a Food Blog:
Raspberry Strawberry Watermelon Popsicle Recipe
makes 6 pops, depending on popsicle mold size
Reserve half of the raspberries and strawberries. Toss the sugar with
the remaining fruit and then blend slightly, until liquid but still a
bit chunky. Mix in the reserved raspberries and strawberries. Pour into
molds and freeze until set.
- 1/2 personal sized watermelon, cut into chunks
- 1/2 cup raspberries
- 1 cup sliced strawberries
- 1/4 cup sugar
Right. So I promised you two blogs. Wit & Vinegar was the first. The other blog is an everything blog called A Cup O' Jo.
This NYC mom has awesome little tid bits about fashion, food, design, and relationships. Because of her, I discovered these T-Shirts
I also found new ideas for hairstyles. I'm trying the three twisted buns
today. I tried to get a picture but it turned out weird. Trust me, it looks gorgeous

Instead of a book pairing, check out some new blogs on the interwebs while you nibble on this week's popsicles. There are quite a few gems out there!
