Snow cones and popcorn and s’mores—oh my! One of the VERY best parts of summer is all of the delicious treats that come along with it. This week’s summer bucket list is all about getting your grub on!
- HAVE A LEGIT PICNIC
Summer is the perfect time to get outside and enjoy a carefree dinner in the park, at the beach, or in the mountains.We’ve got everything you need to add some style to your picnic with these easy Make It Now projects in Design Space!
- DRINK FROM A COCONUT
Planning a summer party, or just want to chill out with family and friends at a Sunday barbecue? What you need for the perfect gathering on a sunny summer day is an ice-cold drink! And, why not add tropical fun by serving it in a coconut? The Lovely Chaos has the cutest how-to here.
- BAKE WITH FRESH PEACHES
Nothing says summer quite like juicy, fresh peaches! Whether it’s a pie, cobbler, or crumble, make something with peaches this week.
Here are our favorite peach recipes from the queen, Martha Stewart, with everything from grilled peach pizza with prosciutto to peach custard pie. Drool
- VISIT YOUR FARMERS MARKET
Speaking of fresh peaches! One of the best things about summer is the delicious and healthy produce, and there’s no better way to purchase it than at a farmers market. While you enjoy the fresh air and sunshine, you can mingle with neighbors while supporting local farms and businesses. Check out our post on how to be a farmers market fashionista!
- MAKE YOUR OWN POPSICLES
Freeze! Now back away from that box of same-old, sugary pops. These delicious homemade popsicle recipes from Real Simple prove that it’s easy—and cool—to be different.
- EAT BREAKFAST FOR DINNER
One of our favorite ways to avoid the oven in the summer is making breakfast for dinner! We are DROOLING over these breakfast-for-dinner game changers from Buzzfeed. Seriously, we are making #3 tonight.
- TRY A WILD ICE CREAM FLAVOR We love classic vanilla and chocolate ice cream, but the Cricut Summer Bucket List is all about getting out of your comfort zone. This week, mix it up with an adventurous new flavor. PJK’s Creamery is sure to inspire your taste buds with flavors like Abuelita Chocolate Ice Cream with Amour Spreads orange habanero marmalade swirl and jalapeno pepita brittle crunch, La Barba Coffee Ice Cream with Kahlua caramel ribbon and fig/almond crumble and Peach Ice Cream with a High West Whiskey toffee swirl and chipotle-toasted pecans—yum!
