… some summer favorites

This summer I have been craving the funniest things. . .

When the temperature rarely goes below 90° (F), 
& is on track to possibly set a record for 'days over 100°'. . .
I seem to not want 'creamy' things (even ice cream!) as much,
& this is what hits the spot. . .

. . . Yep. J-e-l-l-o.
For me, it's sugar free & the cherry & lemon flavors seem to be what I am making the most.
They truly hit the spot.

The other thing that has been a constant in the refrigerator are these. . .

 I have always liked radishes. . . in salads & for snacking. . .
but this summer, it's as if there is no such thing as 'too many radishes'.
I even found new ways of preparing them. 
Country Living magazine just did a little 'radish feature' & I found this & this (yum!).

What's funny is that since I've been keeping radishes in stock in the fridge, Dad has been craving them too! 
(read: we are going through bunches & bunches of radishes. . . & jello!)

What an odd combo. . . but what can you do.
When a craving hits, a craving hits.

Happy summer days!

Jello is a favorite of mine as well, especially orange...also sugar free popsicles, again orange a favorite. I have never developed a taste for radishes but they sure are cute in salads!

If lime jello & carrots tastes great, what flavor jello goes with radishes? Wonder if it's in the Jello cookbook? My Dad always grew radishes. He would plant a row a week and have fresh ones all summer.

I buy lots of Jell-O cups, but I can't make it. It just comes out yucky, never gelling enough or else it's like rubber. I mean, leave it to me to mess up Jell-O!

I know what you mean. I have been craving ice cream sandwiches.
