Monday, Monday..Blue, Mosaic.Foodie

Birds,Berries and Bags is it ever hot!

guess everyone is talking about the weather..
and most  is praying for a break in the heat wave,,

hopefully rain!
nothing dramatic..
just a light soaking rain..
something wash the dust off..
cooling everything in its midst.

even the birds and hoping for rain..

Me.. I just want all sorts of tasty COLD stuff..
to cool me from the inside out!

 nice crisp salads...
    cold gazpacho.

    cold melons.
Lemoncello  lemonade. a frozen one!

and Iced tea.
    anything light and cold..
plain old Ice Water!

 ice box pies..are nice..
 they are heavy..yet cold..

one thing I do LOVE in the summertime is..

 love picking them early in the morning while still damp with dew.
of course,more than an equal amount is consumed than goes into the bucket!

and frozen on a cookie sheet,

then placed in Zip.Loc* bags..

they are so handy to dump into cereal..
or use in baking cobblers, pies, muffins..

or made into scrumptious ICE CREAM!

Imagine.. a Blueberry Daiquiri!

personally. I love eating them frozen.. 
right out of the bag!
and ..
speaking of Bags..

Z is for Ziploc bags..

They are LIFE savers in the kitchen,
I use them for saving leftovers,
lunches, in the freezer..
everything from Zwieback crackers..
to Zucchini..
oh so versatile...
so many, many uses!

Make and take those wonderful memories..
leaving behind..only your footprints...
