I've made blankets this way but I never thought to stuff them and make a dog bed! Would work as a floor pillow for kids' reading nook in the playroom.
Creamy Margarita Popsicles
These popsicles really taste like popsicles, not just frozen liquid that’s almost impossible to enjoy. They’re creamy, they’re lime-y, they’re salty, and they’ve got tequila in them.
1¼ cup fresh lime juice (about 8 limes), plus 4 limes for stabilizing the popsicle sticks
1 (14oz) can of sweetened condensed milk
1 cup water
¼ cup tequila
2 tablespoons orange juice (optional)
Kosher salt or margarita salt
