Days of Summer #37- Edible Sand, Watercress Sandwiches and Rainbow Fruit Pops

Edible Sand
 This looks just like a pail of sand, doesn't it? It is actually a edible (and yummy) dessert!
 Yesterday when I went shopping for groceries, I bought the ingredients for this dessert, including a new sand pail. When the boys were looking to see what I bought, saw the sand pail and asked about it. I told them it was for dessert and they didn't even pause in surprise. They are so used to this kind of answer from me!

These light sandwiches are great for tea time or a summer lunch.
Perhaps a summer picnic to celebrate the official first day of summer tomorrow?
