Ok, don’t hate me. I know I promised you Mushroom & Pancetta Pasta with Whiskey Cream Sauce today, but that’s not what you’re gettin.
Goldie Locks & the Three Bears Cocktails
I made that in fall weather in Scotland, and it is definitely NOT fall here yet! Don’t let go of summer people! Here’s a little taste of my weekend at Virginia Beach last weekend where we cranked up the tunes, grilled veggies to tasty perfection, I managed to turn my skin from “fair” to “golden marshmallow” color, and we perfected this delicious cocktail.
Three kids just havin fun
Here’s what we did:
Salty Dog G & T
Measure into a tall glass with ice:
-2 parts gin
-4 parts grapefruit juice (fresh if you can, otherwise just make sure you buy a good one!)
-the juice of half a lime
-a splash of tonic water
Stir and enjoy – soaking up summer before we fall into autumn ;)
French phrase for fun:
J’aime l’automne, mais j’aime les cocktails d’été mieux.
I love the fall, but I like summer cocktails better.
We’re finally here! We’re on the spring-summer boarder. That means it’s dress season, and in my particular case?…Dress vs. yoga ball season. Seriously, have you ever tried to sit on a yoga ball in a dress? I’m sure most of you haven’t, but lemme tell ya, it takes incredible finesse. (It’s hard enough when I have a case of the Mondays – this is a whole new level.) But really, it’s a small challenge to overcome for all the beautiful, unearthed summer dresses that are in my future.
Another highlight of this time of year – in DC? The influx of bedazzled Obama apparel. It’s so ridiculous and over the top that I just love it. You can’t tell in this light, but that jacket is covered entirely in rhinestones. Rhinestones :)
Other than noticing silly Obama apparel with my trained eagle eye and wrestling my yoga ball at work, this summer I have high hopes of figuring out this fancy pants camera…my Everest:
I’ll also be hiking, headed out to California and a few other places, eating lunch in the park, going to the farmers markets, making salads, aaaaaand…
Don’t stop! There’s more…
