Hello and happy Friday my Friends!!
As I mentioned yesterday, I've been loving our weather and great fun so far this summer. So today I thought I'd share some wonderful summer moments we've been enjoying so far.
First there was this amazing strawberry pie I made a few weeks ago. I had picked up a pallet full of ripe truly wonderful, right from the farm, strawberries and made them into jam and this pie! I found a recipe on pinterest and it was fabulous! Here's how I made it:
First I took an 8 oz block of cream cheese (softened) and blended it with 1/2 a jar of marshmallow cream, 1/4 cup of sour cream, and 1/4 cup of powdered sugar. I mixed these until they were well combined and poured the mixture into an already prepared graham cracker crust (sometimes shortcuts are nice when you don't want to turn on the oven). ;)
I cleaned and cut up my strawberries, but then I also cheated by tossing them in a ready made store bought strawberry glaze. Because sometimes you just want to get to the pie! But if you'd like to see the recipe(wth glaze part) I found on pinterest by the sincerely jean blog you can find it here.
Then ta da!! Absolutely mouthwatering strawberry pie. It was so darn good - go find some great berries and make it today!!
Ruby and I have enjoyed amazing sunsets and lovely walks. I've taken my daughter and her friends to the park. And I've helped to take care of and walk my Mom's new puppy Angel.
I've been enjoying going through my summer scrapbooking stuff and making some summer related paper crafts.
We've enjoyed some beautiful days out on the pontoon. We recently went with some close friends of ours and their kiddos and the kids had such fun jumping off and swimming the day away. My son has has his driver's permit and has been practicing driving now...and that's even carried over to designating himself pontoon driver as well! Lol
