LABOR DAY TREATS

I picked up this cute popsicle maker from Avon. I have been wanting to try a few low carb recipes that I had so that's exactly what I did for a Labor Day treat. Of course there were real ice cream treats for those who are not doing low carb! You can find both of these treats at Things I Have Made on Pinterest or use the links below. Both are pretty good for a refreshing low carb treat!
 
 
First I made Mocha Frappuccino Popsicles from

 
So Cute!

 
Then I made Frozen Orange Creamsicles from
Low Carb Luxury. Of course these are lime
because I couldn't find orange at the time.


We also had a great dinner of BBQ Country Style Pork Ribs, Mashed Potatoes, Corn and broiled Asparagus. Mark invited Phil from work to join us! He brought over some wonderful champagne which we all toasted with our dinner. Our table included Mark, Amber, Adam, Tristen, Phil and me. Dylan was still out of town with his family. We look forward to him returning home on Sunday.


Adam and Tristen having a quiet moment to themselves. 
 
Have a wonderful weekend!
