Happy 4th of July and for those not living in the states, well just happy day. It is sunny here and actually warm. It finally feels like summer !!!! Although warm in western Washington is like 74 degrees. Sadly we are all sick with summer colds, yuck. So there is not much celebrating around here. We can hear the fireworks just over the trees but the trees are too tall for us to see them. Across the water is the Indian reservation, that has been shooting fireworks off every night for like 2 weeks. If we sit on my bed just right, we can see a few ;-)
With our summer colds, only cold things sound good on our throat's. So lots of fruit-pops, smoothies, ices, ect. I make this frozen strawberry treat, that we all love. Plus it is another recipe that uses the rose syrup (one more reason to make it). I hope everyone has a lovely day full of watermelon, potato salad, pie and ice cream. Enjoy it for us xoxoxox
Frozen Rosey Treat
This is basically a very thick stawberry buttermilk smoothie, frozen in a cup. If you have some smoothie you love to make, you can do the same thing.
1 cup frozen or fresh strawberries
1 cup buttermilk
1/4 cup rose syrup or honey
In a blender add everything but milk. Then add just enough milk that looks like it will help mixture to blend, but try to keep the smoothie on the thick side. Blend till smooth. In a small bowl or cup set one anna's cookie in the bottom, fill with strawberry mixture and top with anna cookie. Set in freezer, uncovered about 3-4 hours or till frozen. If you are not going to eat it right away, then cover dish with foil, to keep fresh.
More things to do with my rose syrup! Thanks.
And Happy belated 4th! :)

The treat sounds yum! I love smoothie-foods.
And I'm really in love with that table covering. Care to tell us about it? It's so bright and cheery! Love the reds.
