Grapefruit & Yogurt Pops

Have you ever been to a bulk warehouse store and seen a gigantic bag of grapefruits? What could one person do with so many grapefruits? Well, the answer is this:

Grapefruit & Yogurt Pops

  • 2 cups plain, low-fat yogurt
  • 2 cups Pink grapefruit sections
  • 1 teaspoon grapefruit zest
  • 1 teaspoon lemon or orange extract
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
Combine all ingredients in a blender or food processor and mix until smooth. Pour into popsicle molds and freeze.

Crunchy Fish Sticks

I'm not a big fan of fish, but it's important in brain development for the kids. Thanks to Parents Mag, I have a recipe. Those frozen fish sticks seem, well fishy about the ingredients and stuff, so this seems like a doable solution! Have fun!

1 1/2 c. flour
1 tbl. dry mustard
salt & pepper to taste
2 c. buttermilk
2 eggs
1 lb. tilapia or halibut (do the halibut even if it's more $. Tilapia are bottom feeders- ick) cut into 24 strips
3 c. panko bread crumbs (I've found these at the store- it just sounds like a weird ingredient)
1/2 c. canola oil- divided

In a large bowl, mix flour, mustard, salt & pepper. Add buttermilk and eggs. Coat fish with the egg mixture then bread crumbs. In a pan, heat some oil on medium high heat and Sautee fish in batches with more oil until done. (about 5 minutes, turning occasionally)
