I should be sweeping floors.....

Yes, I should be doing some cleaning! But instead I'm -

Making Finger Jello:

We are having a picnic tomorrow, our annual trek to Long's Park for the Patriotic concert and fireworks show. I always make finger jello - red and blue, of course!

Aidan asked me the other day if I was going to bring it again this year. Yes, Aidan, you will have your jello!

I've been making sandwiches:

 In 1998, I saw this sandwich recipe in a Taste of Home magazine. I made it for our July 4th celebration at the Rehab center where Marcy was recovering from injuries she had from an accident. We loved it and I have been making it for our Long's Park picnic ever since.  A cream cheese spread is put on the bread, then ham on one side, turkey on the other.

 Sandwich sliced dill pickles are put on top of bottom layer of meat.

 Slap the top half over half lower half and you have a sandwich!

Wrap them tight and put them in the frig.
I'll slice them up before we leave for the picnic tomorrow. 
These sandwiches are really good!

I baked cookies!

 Gluten free chocolate chip for me...

Chocolate chip for the rest of the fam who live here.
(these are not going along to the picnic)

I have a secret to tell...
the gluten free cookies were from a box,
the others were from a pack of ready to bake =)

I washed up the dishes and now must go fill up my water jugs at the grocery store.....then, maybe, I'll get to the floors. Maybe.

Wishing you all a wonderful week end! Make some memories!
Can you believe that June is almost GONE??

Perfect picnic food. And ... the floors can always wait, right?

The sandwiches and the jello were great. So were Lynn's and Scott's desserts! Yumm.

We had so much fun food this weekend. Now I need to get back to my walking and careful eating again. Waaahhhh.
