So, we took a look at what I envision the beach vacay to be. Now let’s talk about what to make to eat.

Picnic Musings

Good Morning Darlings!

It is almost time for the 2012 Summer Olympics, when all eyes will be on London.

There’s something about nibbling treats while watching the planet’s greatest athletes that puts me in a festive mood. But you all know I have been super busy, and have no time to prepare a fabulous spread for my friends.

Whatever shall I do?

Swoozie’s Spiffs Up Summer

Good Morning Darlings!

Do you remember last year when I was just dying over Swoozie’s Corkcicles?

Oh my goodness, me, they come in a variety of colors now! LOVE THEM!

Colorful Corkcicles!

A fresh color from Monday – Friday! And at $24.95, they are still the coolest (get it?) hostess gift around.

Hint, Hint

I’m just sayin’!
