Watermelon & Fireflies

This week's ironing movie was inspired by Watermelon and Fireflies by Sugar Pie Farmhouse.

"My oh my! Sugar Pies, are you ready for a sun-drenched, farm fresh, sweet-as-corn-on-the-cob adventure to the good ol’ summertime? Well, this E-Book will take you there! This is more than a E-Book with words, each page is decorated in full color with vintage images, photos, charming quotes and of course 51 farm fresh ideas including family fun tips, recipes, decorating ideas, encouragement for homemakers and so much more!Darlins’, ”Watermelon and Fireflies” is just drippin’ with sweet southern nostalgia like honey from a honeycomb!" says Aunt Ruthie from Sugar Pie Farmhouse.

The e-book is just wonderful!!! The third idea in the book is about breakfast in a bucket and ends with a quote from the movie...

Oklahoma~~~~ the first musical written by Rogers and Hammerstein.

I had to watch it again as I worked today. Shirley Jones had such a tiny waist!!!! Oh for those days of gingham dresses~~~~ :-)

There's a bright golden haze on the meadow
There's a bright golden haze on the meadow
The corn is as high as an elephant's eye,
An' it looks like it's climbin' clear up to the sky.

Oh, what a beautiful mornin',
Oh, what a beautiful day.
I got a beautiful feelin'
Ev'rything's goin' my way.

Also from Sugar Pie Farmhouse we had a Ice Box Lemonade Pie last week. Emily made it and Artie loved it. He's not very big into desserts so when I find one he wants to eat for a snack- it's a good day.... plus it's cool - no baking....

8 oz cream cheese, softened
1 can sweetened condensed milk
3/4 cup frozen lemonade concentrate, regular or pink, thawed
1 container Cool Whip
q graham cracker crust

Beat cream cheese until smooth.
Gradually beat in condensed milk, then lemonade.
Fold in whipped topping and pour into pie shell.
Cover and refrigerate until set.
