Senior Strawberry Slush
Here's fruity refreshment that can flavor a gathering without a fuss! Simply stir up strawberries, juices, water and sugar according to the recipe, then freeze. Add soda before serving and you're all set. Keep one thing in mind, though, chuckles Thelma Rush of Mt. Pleasant, Tennessee. "You may want to make extra," she notes. "People are always coming back for seconds!"
