January Photo Challenge 2019

I have 365 photo prompts, and I have used 31 of them.  How long will I stick with this project?  Your guess is as good as mine.

National Pink Day

National Pink Day


Guess what today is? No, really–try and guess (hint: see the title of this post)…that’s Right!! It’s national pink day!

In my opinion, every day should be pink day, but I will settle for truly celebrating only once a year.

I formulated this frozen yogurt recipe especially for today.  It is simple and is pure enough to be eaten for breakfast (that’s what I did!).  Be sure to comment below and tell me how you are spending your national pink day!

Blushing Frozen Yogurt


  • 6 oz. strawberry yogurt
  • 1/2 cup canned peaches, cut into 1/2-inch cubes (drained and rinsed)
  • Toppings (I topped mine with 1/2 cup whole grain cereal)


  • Combine all ingredients in a bowl.
  • Freeze for 30 minutes.
  • Remove and mix well.
  • Freeze for an additional 30 minutes.
  • Remove and mix.
  • At this point, the frozen yogurt is ready to eat.  If you allow it to freeze overnight (as I did), it will be solid in the morning.  Simply place it in the microwave for about 25 seconds and stir to make it scoopable.
  • Scoop it, top it, and eat it!

Happy Pink Day!!
