Have you ever made something that made you so happy, you could not stop smiling? Well look at what has me smiling!

The weather has been getting so nice, and I love it. I like hot weather, I do not like to be cold. Funny coming from Michigan seeing how cold our weather gets. We hit 90 degrees on Sunday and it was perfect. One thing I like when its hot is a frozen fruit bar, but when I saw how much they cost this year I decided to make my own. Who knew it was that easy. Just get some molds, cut some fruit and add fruit juice. I picked up these cute molds at the grocery store. The molds are cheaper than a 6 pack of frozen fruit bars.

So I just chopped up some strawberries and threw in some whole blueberries and topped off the molds with fruit juice. That’s it.

Stuck them in the freezer.

Look at these beautiful frozen fruit bars with no added sugar.

I am loving this. So simple, why have I not been making these all my life. I have so many frozen combinations I can not wait to make. This will be a perfect treat on those hot days.

For dinner I made a Buffalo Blue Cheese Chicken Burger. Wow, another keeper. I have been slightly obsessed with using ground chicken and making different burgers lately.

The spicy hot sauce and the sharpness of the blue cheese is so good together.

Even though it’s a big old burger, it’s not heavy at all. It’s actually a nice light meal.  Glad this recipe makes 4 burgers, now I can enjoy it again.
