These are three snacks I love keeping stocked in my freezer when it’s warmer outside. Something sweet, something salty, and something sour. And apparently all green.
Green grapes easily turn into the perfect frozen treat when washed and put into snack baggies for easy transfer from freezer to pool bag. You may not eat edamame frozen (or at least I don’t), but I always have a bag in my freezer. I prefer the edamame in the shell at snack time, because after a quick boil, a small sprinkle of sea salt, and a few minutes to cool down under cold water, they completely satisfy my craving for a salty, butter bite. I’m a huge fan of all popsicles, but at home you’ll almost never find our freezer without a box of Lemon and/or Lime popsicles. They make my sour taste buds very happy (my favorite are dryers outshine bars).
It feels like summer is trying to push its way onto the front range! (what!? it was snowing two weeks ago!) The past three days have been wonderfully sunny and warm. The perfect kind of days for taking advantage by dusting off the ol’ bike and stretchin’ her legs, we are gonna spend a lot of time together this summer. Summer months on the Front Range are pretty awesome, and if you find your self bored here, after the sun comes out to stay, it’s never for a lack of entertainment or adventure. Soon every weekend will host a new festival, or a new concert series. Kayaks, Paddle Boards, Fishing poles, tents, longboards, slack lines, etc, all are taken from their winter hibernation and put into daily action. Patios will become the hotspot for any happy hour, and table spots in the sun will become coveted. Steetmosphere also kicks off in Old Town this Friday, so art will be back on the streets downtown once again. Many students leave for vacation, but the rest of us stay and relish everything our city offers us by getting outside. I love when the color comes back into this town, when it’s vibrancy really gets kicked up a notch. It simply allows you to find happiness all around. Hope you enjoy this little illustration that I made to bring a little more color into everyones day.
