Fruit Punch Pops
I’ve discovered a few hidden talents this week!
First, I can talk to cats! My Dad got a couple of kittens this weekend and the poor little things were just heartbroken and not eating. On a long shot, I decided to call to them like a momma cat. This wasn’t just an ordinary, half-hearted meow. It was a very distinct and loud cry I remembered my childhood cat, Chubby, using when she called her babies. I gave it my all. I’m sure I looked ridiculous, but it worked! Those scared little kittens perked up, started meowing back and came out to me! They’ve been eating and doing better ever since!
I know, I know, not one of those talents you should get excited and tell people about. That’s ok, lives were saved. I feel good about it. But let’s not talk about it again, mmkk?
Moving on, to the one you guys actually benefit from- I make delicious popsicle recipes! I was asking some friends what flavor of popsicles I should try in my Zipzicle pouches. Not going to lie, I was expecting something extravagant and super special. Some never before heard of flavor that would rock your socks off. Instead I got fruit punch. Meh. That’s kind of average so I decided to ask hubby. His suggestion was a savory, squash and onion pop. No. Just No. Not ever. Gross.
So, I ignored them both and made a delicious, Banana Avocado Pop instead (Look for that recipe next week) but I couldn’t shake that fruit punch idea. I wanted want something fruity and red so I decided to give it a try. Guess what? First time- nailed it! Clearly, I have hidden popsicle making talents.
