More Melon Madness

Peas. Coffee. Popsicles. Pajamas. What the heck time is it anyway?

Peas Coffee Pajamas

Why it’s time for breakfast, of course.

What? You don’t eat peas and watermelon for breakfast? Well then you haven’t lived!

Actually, it’s time to tell you that this popsicle mold has paid for itself.

Popsicle Molds Pay for Themselves

This is especially true because our neighbor gave it to us and I didn’t pay a dime for it.

And this is especially good because the handles break off pretty easily.

Thaw Slightly Before Twisting

And if I’d have paid for it, that would be especially annoying.

But I digress.

You see, this popsicle mold has paid for itself thanks to a certain young lady I know. A young lady who sticks her nose up at watermelon,

Watermelon Nose

but will hug her breakfast peas like her ship is sinking in Lake Smoothie and that bowl is her floatation device.

Pea Hugger

I know, right? She’ll eats peas but she won’t eat watermelon? Don’t ask me. I just live here and offer up whatever vegetable she’ll willingly shovel in.

BUT! Puree that watermelon into a liquid and then pour it into a mold?

My little watermelon snubber appears out of no where.

Watermelon Popsicles

(have you ever tried pureed watermelon? get on that!)

Now I know I already told you about her willingness to eat fruit smoothie popsicles.

Popcicles for Breakfast

But this bears repeating because I have come to see that I can pour anything into those molds and it has yet to be turned down.

I am |thisclose| to making Brussels sprout popsicles. At the very least I’d eat them. Probably.

I have decided that popsicles are like kryptonite for, shall we say – “selective eaters”.

(that’s PC for “picky”.)

They simply can’t resist! I have gotten more fruit into this kid than EVER before thanks to this little contraption.

And that makes that plastic sucker worth her weight in gold. (how much is 36 lbs of gold going for these days anyway?)

The moral of today’s story?

If you have kids and you don’t have a popsicle mold, come a little closer so I can cuff you in the head.

Too Many Cooks

Go get one! Summer is almost over! You could probably find one in the sale bin right now – it might even have sturdier handles.

And here, take a Brussels sprout popsicle and hold it against your noggin. Sorry about that.
