Friday Inspiration: Go to the Drive-In

{Image of our local Harvest Moon Drive-In}

I enjoy getting out as much as possible in the summer. Long walks, picnics, swimming, parks, etc. Tonight I plan on seeing a movie at the Drive-In.  I haven't been to a drive-in for a couple of years, but with an invitation from friends to go, and tonight's weather forecast looking perfect with 0% chance of rain, how could I say no?

Crab & Lobster Sugar Cookies

I had been looking for an excuse to try out our new cookie cutters for some time now. (I did however use the mini crab cookie cutters before here to make homemade crab shaped croutons.) I decided summer would be the perfect time to decorate these cookies in red, white, and blue for a 4th of July treat. Since sugar cookies can be a process I used a store bought package for the dough and made my own icing. This is the recipe I used for home made royal icing. 

{Beat for 10 minutes on low until icing becomes like paste}
{Divide icing into separate containers and add food coloring}
{Outline the cookie with icing then flood the inside adding more where needed until filled}

{Decorate before the icing hardens. I used red sanding sugar for the lobsters}
