More ovaltine please… I love saying that. Do I say it too much? Oh I am sure I do, but my family just humors me anyways. We are really digging the new ovaltine recipe here. To get my husband so excited over a drink is very rare, so you know it has to be good if Mr. Picky drinks it. Since the weather outside is frightful, oh wait, I mean the weather outside is HOT, we decided to invite some friends and head to the park for an ovaltine outdoor fun party courtesy of ovaltine.
M and I set the table before the guests arrived.
As the guests arrived, we had them pick a toy to start off the outdoor fun. The kids were loving the toy selection. Each child got to take a toy home as well, so I was ranking high with the cool mom alert.
After so much sweat, the kids were ready to drink and eat.
It was time for myself to play milk maker. As each guest made their plate from the healthy spread we had of deli tray, fruit salad, gold fish crackers and dried fruit, I was busy creating their chocolate milk.
The chocolate milk was a HUGE hit as each kid came back for seconds, thirds and even more.
After taste testing the new ovaltine recipe, I noticed the kids kept looking over at the dessert cups. Dirt cups made with ovaltine.
They were delicious.
Dirt Cup Recipe

1 pkg. (3.9 oz.) JELL-O Chocolate Instant Pudding
2 cups cold milk

All the kids just raved over the dirt cups and their milk. We finally brought the outdoor fun to a close with a game of volleyball.
