Feel-good Friday: pools, parties, pizza

Please…….give me just a few more weekspool4

I’m prepping for a friend’s pool party.  Trying to become bikini-bod ready and perfectly tan in time is just too stressful, so for now I’ll focus on some fun things to enjoy around the pool.  Like:

For those who do wish to enter into the deep end, fashion a raft for food, drinks, magazines or summer reads.  But proceed at your own risk–your guests may never (ever) leave. Yeah; one guest being me.

Now for something so deceptively simple:

Watermelon ice cubespool2

These frozen fruit cubes are subtly sweet, completely refreshing and–best of all–require only one ingredient. From sparkling water to sangria, they’re a no-brainer way to upgrade your summer drinks.

What do I need? A seedless watermelon, a baking sheet and a freezer.

What do I do? Cut your juicy, seedless watermelon into cubes and lay them flat on a baking sheet. You can add a drizzle of sugar or a sprinkle of mint or basil. Put the baking sheet in the freezer for about three hours, or until frozen. Then plop the watermelon cubes into a plastic bag to store them.

That’s it? Yep. Add them to your drinks for a hint of fruit, or eat them plain–these one-ingredient wonders are just as satisfying as ice pops.  Remember them? Those little plastic popsicle trays that you fill with juice and you can even spike them.  Just saying…

Perfect Poolside Pleasure.  Cheers!
