I had all these big, productive plans for the summer…update my food storage, organize the kid’s closets (out with the old), touch up the paint on my walls (kid damage), catch up on my digital scrapbooks, etc.  And, here it is almost August and I have nothing to show for myself…and I can’t explain it, other than I’ve been completely running myself ragged.  Can you relate?  Between birthday parties, family vacations and outings, weddings, and the usual messy house and mommy stuff, there’s no more time!  What was I thinking??  Food storage, yea right.  But, I haven’t given up hope.  I’m determined to check some of these things off my summer list.  So, when I’m a total grouch and recluse, you’ll know why.  Anyway, my point is that cooking has dropped on my priority list and Chick-fil-A has become my new best friend.  At least until summer is over.  :)  However, I manage to sneak back into the kitchen now and then, and I’m only feelin-it for the super easy recipes…like Pink Lemonade Ice Cream Pie.  Holy easy.

You can make your own graham cracker crust (recipe makes 2 regular size pies) OR you can take the easy way out and buy a pre-made crust.  I opted for the Keebler Mini Ready Crusts (recipe made 18).  Besides the crust, you will need 2 quarts of vanilla ice cream, a 12 oz. can of pink lemonade, red food coloring, and whip cream for the topping.

Soften your ice cream and dump in a large bowl with the can of pink lemonade and about 4 drops of red food coloring.  Stir together.

Scoop the pink lemonade ice cream into the pie crusts and place back in the freezer until set.  Maybe, 2 hours?

Squirt a wad of whip cream on top and serve!

Happy August! I hope you had a great July. :) It was a super busy month for us. Every year, when school gets out, I'm determined to get ALL of my projects done before we start up homeschool again. But, without fail, almost nothing gets done. BUT, I guess that's okay, since my excuse is lots and lots of family activities. Hopefully, the food storage- will get updated, the closets organized, and my e-book will get written, one of these days. How about some favorite things, friends?!? Here's my top 5 picks for August:
Zulily is the best for finding deals on kid and maternity clothes. I sometimes find clothes for myself, but usually end up with great shoes and accessories.

Stitchfix is responsible for one of my happiest days of the month. A stylist picks and ships 5 adorable clothing items specifically for me. Whoo!
