Red, White, and Blue Eating

LIFE celebrated Independence Day with some patriotic foods in colors of red, white, and blue. Tracy Williams made a divine lemon sorbet in her Cuisinart ice cream maker. The sorbet was garnished with blueberries and strawberries. Dorrie Scott created two delicious drinks. One drink was a layered one with cranberry juice on the bottom, coconut juice in the middle and blue (blueberry pomegranate) gatorade on the top. She said you can vary the colors for different occasions such as Valentine’s Day or St. Patrick’s Day. You also have to have dramatically different sugar counts especially with the first and second layer. Then she created a drink with red, white, and blue fruit topped with Sprite. Lindsey Bartlett created a fruit pizza! Sugar cookie dough is sliced and placed on a pizza pan to form the crust. It is baked at 375 for about 14 minutes so it’s golden brown. Then a mixture of cream cheese and sugar to taste is spread on the completely cooled crust. Then you can decorate with colorful fruit. Lindsey used strawberries, peaches, blueberries and kiwi.  It looked as good as it tasted.  All in all it was a super fun and delicious celebration.  Happy Independence Day!
