I bought some Minute Maid Italian ice the other day and Glorianna and I really liked it. So here's a recipe that I'm trying out:

boil together for 10 minutes:
1 Cup sugar
4 Cups water
1 T grated rind
3/4 Cup fresh lemon juice

Let it cool. Freeze and stir every hour until more or less set then divide into individual servings.


BBQ pulled pork

Author: Mama Bear Email  | Filed under: Main Dish with 142 words and 944 views

I made BBQ pulled pork yesterday for lunch at church. I cooked about 24 lbs of pork shoulder for about 14 hours in a big roaster at 250F. It was mostly covered with water. I had added some chopped onions (1/shoulder), garlic powder and liquid smoke, but don't know if they really mattered much. After cooking, I pulled out the pork shoulders one at a time from the roaster to shred along with some of the cooked onions, mix in BBQ sauce to taste and then added juice from the cooking water to a create a good consistency for pulled pork. When I was done I dumped the remainder juice and then returned the pulled pork to the roaster. I kept the temperature at about 225F for a few hours until lunch. It was served with cole slaw and buns. And it was good....

These cookies just looks too cute to pass up. I'm sure I'll hate the taste, but what they hey. If I make them, I'd bring them somewhere or have the kids make them...


1 box (12 oz.) vanilla wafer cookies*, divided
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels
1/3 cup milk
1/2 cup sweetened flaked coconut
1/2 teaspoon water
3 drops green food coloring
Red and yellow decorating gels (for ketchup and mustard)
1 teaspoon melted butter (optional)
1 tablespoon sesame seeds (optional)

RESERVE 48 wafers for bun tops and bottoms.

PLACE remaining wafers in large resealable bag. Crush into small pieces using a rolling pin. Combine wafer crumbs (about 1 1/2 cups) with powdered sugar and salt in medium bowl.

MICROWAVE morsels and milk in medium, uncovered, microwave-safe bowl on HIGH (100%) power for 45 seconds; STIR. If necessary, microwave at additional 10- to 15-second intervals, stirring just until smooth.

POUR chocolate mixture into wafer mixture; stir until combined. Cool for 10 minutes. Line baking sheet with wax paper. Roll mixture into 24, 1-inch (about 1 tablespoon each) balls. Place each ball on prepared sheet; flatten slightly to form burger patties.

COMBINE coconut, water and green food coloring in small, resealable plastic bag. Seal bag and shake to coat evenly with color.

PLACE 24 wafers, rounded side down on prepared baking sheet. Top each wafer with 1 burger patty. Top each burger patty with 1 teaspoon colored coconut. Squeeze decorating gels on top of coconut. Top with remaining wafers. Brush tops of wafers with melted butter and sprinkle with sesame seeds, if desired.

* A 12-oz. box of vanilla wafers contains about 88 wafers.

• Recipe can easily be doubled or tripled. Great birthday or slumber party activity.
• Cut apricot fruit rollups into small 1/2-inch squares to create cheese for the mini burgers.
