Frozen Lemonade Pie


As much as we needed the rain, I was bummed out that it came on Friday and today. I had tons of work to do in the garden and got very little accomplished. Couldn't the rain have waited until tomorrow?

I made Michael one of his all-time favorite desserts - Frozen Lemonade Pie. It is one of the easiest things in the world to make. We embellished it a few years ago and added more graham cracker crumbs.

Frozen Lemonade Pie

(Makes 2 pies)

3 Graham Cracker Crusts
14 oz. sweetened condensed milk (chilled)
8 oz. Cool Whip (thawed)
12 oz. frozen lemonade (unthawed)

Fold the condensed milk and Cool Whip together. Add the frozen lemonade and gently fold.

Crush one of the pie crusts and stir the crumbs into the mixture.

Pour into the two remaining pie shells and freeze the pies for 6 hours or more until set. Store in freezer.

Lily 'Caravan" and "Silk Road"


The lilies are beginning to bloom. I think they are spectacular plants. They struggle to reach for the sun in our garden and the stalks aways flop over and have to be staked, otherwise the beautiful flowers end up nodding towards the ground. This is one of my favorites - "Caravan" - which I purchased many years ago from The Lily Garden in Vancouver, Washington.

Another good one is "Silk Road" (pictured below).
