Strawberry Parfait Day

Strawberry Parfait Day. Hello friends. Happy Monday, lovelies. So how are you today? I hope you have all had a good weekend? We did. Another birthday and now I have another teenager in the house!! Let the fun begin!

Planet Bounce
Tired eyes! Up at 6 am baking cakes. Blame the cakes!! Everything is the cake’s fault! Always!!

Strawberry Parfait Day:

Friday night both my older two Sons came home for the weekend to see their Sister on her Birthday. One also brought his girlfriend over to stay, which was lovely too. A full house!

On Saturday I was really busy starting from 6 am when my Daughter woke the whole house up by playing some awful irritating loud repetitive screeching music to make everyone in the whole house wake up and give her some birthday presents! Good thinking to be fair. She even craftily set my eldest Sons alarm for 6 am to wake him up!

How does she even think of these things!? So funny!

Then onto making 36 gluten-free cupcakes and a birthday cake for a Gluten-Free family Birthday party for my Daughter in the afternoon.

Then we ran to the train station and caught a train into Nottingham for a fun time at Planet Bounce that my eldest Son had planned for my Daughter. Yes, even this oldie got to bounce too. It was actually so much fun.

Parfait Day: Layer Up Your Fruit, Cream And Nuts

Strawberry Parfait Day:

Strawberry Parfait Day. I am so pleased you have stopped by to join us for this week’s Creative Mondays Link Up. Today is also Strawberry Parfait Day. Yummy. I love making and eating fruit parfait.

Celebrate Strawberry Parfait Day with these mouthwatering recipes that showcase the lusciousness of strawberries in all their glory. Indulge in these Strawberry Yogurt Parfait, layering fresh strawberries, creamy yogurt, and crunchy granola for a delightful breakfast or snack.

Discover the joy of Strawberry Parfait Day with these irresistible recipes that will satisfy your sweet cravings.

You can find a few recipes that I have published before here:

Granola Parfaits With Strawberries:

Firstly, Granola Parfaits With Strawberries. Secondly, a glass Mason jar filled with Granola, Greek Yogurt, Blueberries and Strawberries make such a tasty and yummy breakfast, brunch or afternoon snack. Indeed, deliciousness in a jar!

Sometimes I like to make them up, put the lid on them and have them when I have come back in from a run when the yoghurt has soaked into the granola. Quicker to eat them too. Granola Parfaits With Strawberries.

Speedy Granola Parfait:

Secondly, Speedy Granola Parfait: Using Sugar Free Granola. Love fresh fruit? Healthy granola and yoghurt? If so, fancy trying out these speedy granola parfait pots out for breakfast? Health and tasty!! Yum, yum! We love making up breakfasts like these. We mix and match with seasonal berries and different cereals. I also like to make up gluten free ones for my daughter. Today I have 3 different recipes to share with you. Speedy Granola Parfait.

Crispy Crunch Fruity Snack:

Crispy Crunch Fruity Snack. Firstly, this tasted amazing. Especially ones with yogurt in!! My children and I loved making these up. So we layered our favourite crispy crunch cereals up with natural yoghurt, strawberries, banana, and pineapple. It was delicious! Crispy Crunch Fruity Snacks. So good.

This Week’s Featured Blog Posts:

One blogger I would like to give a shout out to this week is Patrick from Adventures in Weseland. Every Monday Patrick posts his favourite tunes on his Music Monday posts and I always love the choices he picks out. I often pick out a few songs to listen too before I comment. Why not stop by and see what his Music Mondays picks are this week or see which ones he picked out last week: Music Monday: Childhood Movie Songs

Firstly, I always love to see what Erika from Rejoice For The Day has been making because she makes the most amazing dresses. They are just the kind of dresses I wear and would love to own! I adore this cactus print material from her latest dress and it turned out beautiful. I want one! now I wonder where I could find one like this in The UK? You can find Erika’s amazing dress here: A Cactus Dress? Why Not.

Secondly, One of my favourite treats is cookies. One of my favourite chocolates is white chocolate. One of my favourite berries is blueberries. Put them all together and what do you get!? Some amazing Blueberry White Chocolate Chip Cookies of course 😉 Yummy!!!!!!!!!!! One thing I wish I had a little more of is confidence. I think I have lost mine over the years since I gain weight and nothing fits me!

Thirdly, Laurie has the perfect swimwear to boost your confidence. I would pick something like this for swimming as I love the style and pattern of this swimsuit. You can find Laurie’s post here: Swimsuits That Will Boost Your Confidence.

    You day like a fun birthday and celebration! When you have entire family together you just never know what’s going to happen but no matter what it’s always a great time! We had a good weekend too. Saturday was quiet since it was over a 100 degrees and Sunday we visited family for an introduction to a new a member! Such a good baby. He was so quiet and slept and just looked around. Crazy to think that babies can be that way when mine was complete opposite! Ha!

      We had a great weekend altogether, so much fun 🙂 Aww lovely Maureen. I remember all mine being babies.

  16. 25 June 2018 / 06:31

    I used to set the alarm for Christmas morning! And then my kids did it to me! Thanks for featuring Claire. Have a great week xx
