it isn't summer without...




-an abundance of zucchini from our garden. So far we've made chocolate zucchini muffins, zucchini bread, sauteed zucchini, zucchini stir fry, and this delicious zucchini crustless quiche...and we still have tons of zucchini to eat up!



-a trip "up north." This was my first time tubing...it seemed a lot more dangerous than this picture makes it look. I'm pretty sure I was screaming the whole time!







-Rainbow jello! I got the recipe for this from my friend's mom back when I was in college. Here's the recipe:

You'll need:
a half gallon of sherbet (any color or flavor)
6 different packs of jello: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple
a 9x12 glass pan

Starting with the purple jello, mix one cup of boiling water with pack of jello mix. Whisk for about 2 minutes, then add 1 cup of sherbet. When it's well mixed, pour into glass pan and refrigerate for 1 hour.

Repeat 5 more times with the remaining colors.

According to reliable sources, this tastes just like skittles or sweet tarts.
