Three Cheers For Fun Month!

August is a month for fun, really! August is National Family Fun Month. What are you going to do this month for fun? Here you can find some other fun holidays in August and we’ll share some suggestions for family fun this month.

August 3rd –Watermelon Day 
Watermelon Lime Frosty (or Margarita) makes 2
3 cups watermelon, cubed and frozen
1 ripe banana, peeled and frozen
2 tablespoons agave nectar or maple syrup
Zest from 2 limes
Juice from 2 limes (about 4 tablespoons)
1/2 cup water

Blend all ingredients until smooth, adding more water as needed to keep the mixture moving. For margaritas: add 3-4 shots of silver tequila. You may want to add more watermelon than called for to thicken this up, or to make the drink appear more pink.

August 10th –S’mores Day
Did you know you can make S’mores in the oven? Just take a baking sheet, line with foil, assemble s’mores without the top graham cracker and bake until marshmallows are soft and chocolate starts to melt (you have to watch these closely it doesn’t take long at all) then just take out of the oven, top with the other graham cracker and enjoy!

August 31st –Trail Mix Day 
Plan a little fun activity with the kids or even a small family get-together and have a trail mix bar. Everyone brings their own container to take home and they can create their own trail mix wither they want to indulge in the sweets or get a nice variety of healthy nuts and seeds to start their diet off right.
