Honey Dew Ice Pops + Winner annouced

Awhile ago, I had a giveaway on my blog… which not a lot of people signed up for. Only 5 or 6 did. Next time, I promise to have something better to giveaway. The winner of my ice pop cookbook was Kay Peters Swederisk, Congrats! Hope you enjoy your new cook book.

I can’t believe it’s August already! This summer is going by fast and it’s STILL stinking hot outside. I’ve been hiding in our air conditioned house lately. I have this feeling that Fall is also going to semi hot here for a little while. We need rain here, and lots of it.

Honey dew is one of my favorite summer melons next to watermelon. I can never really tell how to pick a good honey dew melon either. I just kind of smell it, and if it smells sweet, I take it. I don’t know if there’s any other way to tell if a honey dew is ripe. Does anyone else know? Since honey dew melon was only 68 cents a pound this week, that was going to be the flavor. The green color makes it real fun too. Add in some mint leaves or lime zest if you wish to this recipe. These ice pops were very refreshing.
