So I've been drowning in my own life over here for the last 1-2 weeks. It's just one thing after another...Elsie gets ear infection, Elsie starts throwing up, I get ear infection, Owen's puking all over, Tatum decides to start waking up several times a night again, Russ travels and I'm a single mother, I have a nightmare of kids getting kidnapped and can't sleep for a whole night, all five of us get an annoying cold and cough, and today...Elsie gets another ear infection. It's been exhausting and not very fun. I'm still holding out hope that we are going to be alive, well, and reasonably rested by Owen's birthday party this Saturday!
But if there's one good thing that came out of the last 2 weeks, it's been the new popsicle recipe I tried. Wait for raspberries to go on sale and then whip these bad boys up. They were pretty darn tasty.
4 cups raspberries
1/4 cup + 1 Tbsp sugar
1/4 cup fresh mint leaves
pinch of salt
Blend all ingredients together until very smooth. Add 1/4 cup water. Process until completely smooth. Strain mixture and discard the seeds. Freeze in molds.
