Week THREE: Recap!

It was blazing hot today in Chicago, and we cooled off with banana popsicles and watermelon parfaits. We also made a pasta bake for our main dish, and I think the class would agree when I say... this was one of our tastiest dishes ever!

This is a great, easy meal that the whole family will enjoy. We even added a little extra cheese just for fun -- so tasty!

Although our recipe called to blend the watermelon smoothie ingredients together, due to a blender malfunction we got creative and layered them into a parfait instead! This was an unexpected, but equally tasty, way to enjoy the cool sorbet and tasty fruits.

Banana popsicles are super easy to make, and there are so many fun ways to decorate them! We decorated ours with sprinkles after covering them in semi-sweet chocolate. Most of our Taste Buddies class had eaten most of their popsicles before we even put them in the freezer. Chocolate-covered faces nodded their approval of this fun summer treat. In lieu of sprinkles, try other toppings like nuts, cookie or candy crumbs, etc. You can also swap the semi-sweet chocolate for white chocolate.
