A lot of Fun this Week

There are a lot of fun holidays going on this week.

17th – Bat Appreciation Day

19th – High Five Day

21st – Kindergarten Day

22nd – Earth Day


Of course the big one this week is Earth Day. I’ve included a great recipe the whole family will enjoy


Dirt Cups

1 Package (16 oz) chocolate sandwich cookies

2 Cups cold milk

1 Package (4 serving size) Instant chocolate pudding

1 Tub (8oz) whipped topping, thawed

8-10 (7 oz) paper or plastic cups (the plastic ones look cooler)

Garnish: gummy worms or other gummy creatures, candy flowers, chopped peanuts, granola.

Crush the cookies in a zipper-styled plastic bag. Use either your hands or a rolling pin

Pour the milk into a large bowl. Add pudding mix. Beat with wire whisk for two minutes. Stir in whipped topping and ½ the crushed cookies.

Place about 1 tablespoon of crushed cookies in each cup. Fill cups about ¾ full with pudding mixture. Top with remaining crushed cookies.

Refrigerate until ready to serve. Garnish as desired.

Here are some great ways to celebrate Earth Day everyday:

  • Replace light bulbs with energy efficient ones.
  • Use re-usable bags for shopping.
  • Drive your car less. Combine trips to maximize time on the road.
  • Collect rain water for your potted plants.
  • Take public transportation more often.
  • Ride your bike or walk.
  • Turn off lights in rooms you’re not in.
  • Recycle paper and cardboard.
  • Reduce the amount of chemicals you use.
  • Purchase wind power.


On a writing note, I’ve been very busy writing and editing several short stories that will be released soon by Wooden Tulip Press. I will keep you all posted.


Have a great week.
