weekend shopping, & icy pole ideas???

September 11th, 2010 at 06:26 am

Had a lovely start to the weekend so far. A store near us was having a sale on home-brewing supplies, so DF stocked up on a few items. Saved probably about $10. Not a huge amount, but now he is good for atleast another few months. (less trips to the store for DF means less spending - as he always goes in for one thing and comes out with ten extra items!).

I bought two summer tops for $15, three pairs of underwear for $21 and a hair accesory band for $9. Also shouted my SIL to a coffee and myself, $8.10.

I tried on a new style of dress that seems to be in all the stores at the moment and realised it actually looks alright on me - now thinking of finding one in a pattern that I like! The good thing about them being in a lot of stores is firstly, variety of prints and materials, and secondly, I can find the best price too. So I guess that will be my treat for the month. Might buy those in palce of the flip flops, seeing as I can't find any under $120 and don't really want to pay that much for them.

This morning I went to the market and spent approx $35 on fruit and veges for the week. I also bought some plastic icy-pole containers, so that through summer we can be cool & healthy Big Grin

Any ideas for what to make them with? In the freezer I currently have sliced strawberries and apple cider.

    First, I googled icy-pole. . . Smile We would call them popsicles here in the states, I think.

    Daisy and her friend made all kinds of creative icy treats this summer. Lemonade was a big hit, as was root beer. (This is a locally brewed root beer, and it's fabulous. Very different than the kind you'd buy in the grocery store.) They also did some kind of fudgy concoction - I think it involved cocoa mix and chocolate chips but I pretty much turned them loose in the kitchen and told them to just clean up afterwards. I'm not sure what was in it but they liked that one quite a bit!

    With what you have, I would thaw the strawberries and chop them up into small chunks, then fill half each slot with apple cider and the rest with strawberry chunks, and freeze. The possibilities with popsicles/icey poles are endless. Smile
