Everything should be planted and up by now. Hopefully also producing food for your table.

Tomatoes, figs, pears, peaches, and apricots are on and growing. Okra is peeking through. Don't forget the Grand Prairie Farmer's Market on Saturdays from 8am to 1pm. The address is 120 W.

FYI - Your Prescriptions 
If you are currently using a medication that is compounded by a pharmacy near your doctor and would like to have it compounded near your home, we can transfer your prescription and make getting your refills easier and close to home. If you find getting your refills inconvenient, let us help you get your prescriptions close to home.

          Your name
          Your phone number
          Your old pharmacy name and their phone number
          The prescription number or numbers
          Your doctor's name (and their phone number is great, too)
4.) Any insurance information
5.) We'll handle the rest

You can also just bring in your prescription bottle in to us.

In order, place next few ingredients over sandwiches - bananas, top with fudge sauce (can heat 1/2 minute to 1 minute in microwave to make it pour easier - remove metal lid first), strawberry topping, then crushed vanilla wafers, pineapple topping, pecans, then another layer of ice cream sandwiches, cool whip, top with pecans and cherries. Freeze - overnight is best. 

Can use ice cream bars - just remove the sticks.
