an easter basket

I never got around to blogging this, but I made an Easter basket for my little man this year! It was a last minute thing that I started the day before Easter, but I got 'er done!

I followed this tutorial. It didn't take me too long and it was something that I actually finished. I'm pretty notorious for starting a project and never finishing it, so it felt good to have a finished product after a day. It was a fun little project and I love the way it turned out.

I stuffed it with some bubbles, a coloring book, a plastic concrete truck, and a little sail boat. Little man's reaction wasn't huge...actually, he didn't really even care. He just liked the concrete truck. Boys!

strawberry lemonade popsicles

I recently received a zoku quick pop maker from the hubby. and I LOVE it so far. It's perfect when you're craving something sweet and you can have a finished popsicle in 10 minutes!

These are the first popsicles of the season.

Strawberry Lemonade Quick Pops
**recipe from Zoku
Yields: 6

1 cup lemonade
4 oz. hulled strawberries

1. Add lemonade and strawberries to a blender and puree until smooth. Strain through a mesh sieve into a measuring cup, using a spoon to push it through faster. If the mixture is foamy, let it sit for 20 minutes to settle down. Then give it a gentle stir before assembling pops.

2. Remove The Quick Pop Maker from your freezer, insert sticks and pour the strawberry lemonade blend into molds until you reach the fill line. Let freeze completely, then remove the pops with the Super Tool and enjoy! Repeat with remaining 3 pops.

Super easy, and quite yummy. The little man even liked them!
