Since the Orc has been tasked with crushing ice, I think a sno cone day is in order.
All my favorite flavors - I have Mexican ice pops (paletas), too.
One of my favorites!!!!!
In a blender, combine 3 cups 1-inch chunks peeled, seeded cucumber (1 1/2 lb.);
2/3 cup sugar;
1/3 cup lemon juice; and
1 rinsed, stemmed jalapeņo chili (1 to 1 1/2 oz.; remove seeds and veins for less heat).
Whirl until smooth. Push mixture through a fine strainer set over a 2-cup glass measure; discard residue.
freeze in popsicle molds and enjoy!!!
Gonna set up the kiddie pool, to soak our feet and let the pups and kitties cool off too!!
Maybe we'll set up the fire pit for s'mores and star gazing later on!!!!
