May Day on May 1 is an ancient Spring Festival and it is also a traditional spring holiday in many cultures. Traditional May Day rites and celebrations include dancing, crowning a May Queen and celebrations involving a maypole.
Well I didn't dance around any May Poles, but we had another lovely day so there was some ME time to just take a walk outdoors and enjoy the weather. Oh, and Stewarts is having their Ice Cream Sale Week, so my SIL and I HAD to go stock up on ice cream - will be great for some other ME moments (wink).
My tutorial offering are these greatl May Day Basket patterns HERE - I thought they would make great Mother's Day craft gifts, too!
Did you know that May is also National Strawberry Month? So I have a 5-minute ME strawberry desert.
- Packaged plain Nachos - I like the cinnamon/sugar nacho strips (or make your own by taking 3-4 soft tortillas, sprinkle with cinnamon/sugar, warm in oven then cut into pieces)
- 1 1/5 cups strawberries hulled and chopped coursely (or frozen, thawed); sprinkle with 1 1/5 Tsp of sugar and toss to coat
- 8 oz. Vanilla Yogurt
- 1/2 cup shred coconut
line bowl with Nachos, serving of yogurt , add some strawberries and top with coconut
Option - frozen yogurt or ice cream and shaved chocolate
I hope you enjoy your May,
