Two Simple Summer Treats

These are so simple I feel silly for even posting them.

Frozen bananas on a stick.  Okay, not really a recipe but it does go to show that something as simple as a banana can be served, if not as desert, you can at least call it a treat.

Easy peasy.  Bananas seem to get sweeter when you freeze them.  Of course you can dip them in chocolate and roll them in nuts, but we keep it simple around here.  We dip them in peanut butter as we eat them.

Silly, I know.  But just a reminder that dessert can be simple, too.  I toasted large shred coconut in a skillet and sprinkled it on top to make it look more like a dessert than just a bowl of cantaloupe.  I bet your impressed, huh?   Well, I did tell you I would be sharing “simple” recipes this month. You were warned. 

What are some of your super simple recipes?

Sunday ramble…….what we did this week.

Started to prepare for our 10th grade homeschool year which starts next Monday. Haven’t gotten very far. Guess I’ll be working on that some more this week.

Learned how to poach eggs. I know, I’m 40-something and never poached an egg. What’s up with that?

Had the opportunity to make lots of simple meals, using simple ingredients and garden abundance. Lord willing, I’ll be sharing some of those recipes soon.

Went for a drive in my husbands new Nissan Leaf. It is actually reducing our monthly car/gas expenditure by roughly $400 a month.

Caught some Sunday nappers. Man and beast. By the way, the beast was snoring rather loudly.

The best part this week was the blessings that poured in from God through our church family in the way of groceries and prayer for a job for my husband. Our freezer and fridge are stuffed! God answered those prayers, and several days later He blessed my husband with a new job. The best part wasn’t the groceries, and it wasn’t the new job. It was knowing and seeing that God is the provider. That He takes care of His children. God is over the top!

I hope you had a great week!
