You can learn about ice. You can learn about mice.
Mice on ice. And ice on mice…
Nice ice for sale. Ten cents a pail.
From I Can Read with My Eyes Shut!
If you saw my last post about Blueberry Bumplings, you know we have been making wonderful concoctions in the kitchen from the The Green Eggs and Ham Cookbook, all recipes inspired by Dr. Seuss books. Nice lime ice is a really great recipe that I wanted to share because it was fun to make and its pretty versatile. The kids loved the ice pail tower (my son ate them right off the toothpicks). This recipe would make yummy popsicles just use in popsicle molds.
Everyone can enjoy this ice in sparkling mineral water with slices of lime. The ice provides non-stop limeade power… so as you drink toward the bottom your beverage gets a little sweeter. When your drink gets low, just refresh with more sparkling water. I drank 3 glasses during dinner before needing to refresh my ice! Adults could spike the drink to make a lime spritzer.
