Lately in the kitchen

It's been a slow week in the kitchen lately between summer fun, swimming, checking off my list of major projects and some crochetting and gardening.  But here is what did happen.

::  Spent time browsing The Big Book of  Preserving The Harvest.
::  Dried out herbs parsley, dill and cilantro.
::  Enjoyed from the garden lettuce and broccoli and more herbs.
::  Froze garlic scapes pesto.
::  Made smoothies and homemade popcicles.
::  Spent afternoons at the pool cooling off.
::  Collected more sea glass and pottery.

Today's smoothie
Cherry & Peach Shake
1 1/2 cups fresh cherries cut out the pit
1 peach washed, peeled and diced
1 1/2 cups soy milk
1 1/2 cups of ice
Put everything in the blender and blend till smooth about 45 seconds.

Favorite popcicle this week
Berry Popcicles
1/4 cup  blueberries
1 cup strawberries
1 peach or nectarine
1 cup of oranage juice
2 cups of ice cubes
Put everything in the blender and blend till smooth 1 minute.  Pour into popcicle molds and freeze. 

Enjoy your summer treats!
