Freeze Pop Tip

Posted on: April 4th, 2012 by ssteinruck 1 Comment

It's spring, but it feels like summer some days, and it has become routine on our culdesac to have popsicle "parties" almost every day. This usually involves 5-15 kids, depending on who's out, so it needs to be cheap and easy. I buy those freeze pops that come as liquid in the long tube and then you freeze them. The biggest downfall of these cool treats is that you have to cut them open, and usually end up cutting into the frozen, sticky, goodness.

So the last time I bought a bunch, I froze them standing up, so the liquid was at the bottom, leaving a few inches of non-sticky air at the top! No more sticky fingers or scissors. No more kids upset that theirs didn't get cut all the way through. Just popsicle bliss.

Growing Green Onions

I recently learned something fabulous. I can grow my own green onions. In a jar. On my window ledge. With just water. So now, any time I want fresh green onion, I just snip some off. And it grows back! I've been using the same (store bought) green onions for about two months now, and it's still working! I feel like I've uncovered some sort of secret. Shhh. Tell everyone you know!
