I love garage sales. I love makeup. I love things that bring back happy childhood memories. Do any of these things relate to each other? Relate to food? Well let me explain how they do.
I was out at garage sales with my daughter in law the other day. We did a few "drive-byes" and found one that looked promising. I sent my daughter in law to scope it out as we had one screaming twin in tote. She yelled back at me that there was a ton of Tupperware, like new. Well, Tupperware is a complete blast from the past for me. I mean haven't a lot of us moved on to Rubbermaid and Glad disposable storage bowls? I had to go check it out. As I was moving toward the boxes of Tupperware, I had eyeballed something that looked familiar right away. I couldn't be sure if it was, in fact, what I thought it was. As I got closer, my blood pressure rose, and I started to get the shivers, I had, at that moment, in fact, laid my eyes on none other than a "vintage" Tupperware Popsicle Set!! WHAT? This was like my childhood all wrapped in a Ziploc! I was thrilled! I snagged those babies up. I wouldn't have cared if they were 20.00, I was going to leave with them in my hand!
I got home, washed them up and sat contemplating what my first flavor would be. I knew I had cherries to use up. I didn't want to go with chocolate and cherries, it just seemed, not the right thing. As I sat, I was thinking that I needed to do my makeup for an outing later and so I got to it. When I put on my favorite red lipstick, it all came rushing to me. YES! Cherries and almond! I would keep them looking white, with cherries in them and I would call them none other than, "Cherries In The Snow"! (Thanks Revlon!) Many things I love rolled into one, Tupperware, garage sales, lipstick and food. .
My life is now complete.
1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk
3/4 cup evaporated milk
1/2 cup cherries, pitted and chopped
1/8 tsp. almond extract
1/8 tsp. cherry extract
Combine all ingredients, pour mixture into popsicle molds and freeze until completely frozen overnight is best!! While I am not exactly sure how many ounces each of these hold, this will make 6 popsicles using this set! Very easy to double or triple!
Enjoy these simple, but delicious summer treats! But, be prepared because..... I'm in a popsicle state of mind!
