Strawberry-Watermelon Deliciousness

I made an exciting purchase yesterday.  But first, try this recipe.  Seriously.

I am so crazy for this recipe that I just had to share!  It’s for strawberry-watermelon slushie, or pops.  I originally got it from Our Best Bites, and have made a few modifications.

Strawberry Watermelon Slushie

  • 1/3 cup fresh lemon juice (or lime’s good too)
  • 1/3 cup splenda (do not use 1/3 cup from the packets – they’re a lot more concentrated!)
  • about 2 cups watermelon cubes
  • about 3/4 pint fresh or frozen strawberries
  • some ice cubes
  • vodka (optional) – about 4 oz

Blend everything but the ice and vodka, until smooth, then add cubes with blender running, add ice cubes, one at a time.  Stir in vodka, if using.

Omit the vodka, and freeze them into these yummy pops.  I’m in heaven.

My exciting (to me) news?  I got myself a sewing machine yesterday!  After much searching and reading reviews and talking to people, and reading more reviews, and looking at sales, I got this one!  The Babylock Grace.  I’m in love.  Now I need to learn to sew.  My first project was to hem some tights, and I must say, they turned out lovely.

I fell in love with the art of rubber stamping when I was 12 years old. I blame my grandparents. I already had every crafty hobby imaginable when they bought me a few stamps, an ink pad, and some embossing powder. I was hooked. From that point on, no special occasion has gone unmarked by one of my hand-crafted creations. Scrapbooking came next, and though it isn't my first love, it's a close second.

  1. My oh my! It is currently 98 degrees in Boston and the only thing I can think of is cooling down a bit. Sounds so refreshing. Congrats on the sewing machine purchase… I definitely want to dabble more in sewing! :) [chels]
