On a Friday, the perfect way to greet the weekend for me is with what I like to call a Strawberry Delish (or Strawberry Daquiri if you want to add some rum). The perfect combination of fresh fruit, sugar and crunch, and let me tell you, your drink (like the one you see above) will be finished before you know it. (As soon as I took this photo, the drink was in my tummy in a matter of minutes). Here’s the recipe.
8-10 fresh strawberries (topped and sliced in half if extra large)
1/2 can of pink lemonade (frozen or liquid)
1/2 cup sugar
16 ice cubes (or one full ice cube tray)
1/4 cup of water
1. In a blender, combine strawberries, lemonade, sugar and 1/8 cup a water. Blend until smooth.
2. Add the ice cubes and remaining 1/8 cup of water. Blend until smooth.
3. Pour and enjoy!
With drink in hand, I took a stroll around my yard and snapped a few photos to share (one of my neighbors thought I looked a little too happy or maybe they were just envious because I was ending my day and they had to go to work):
My lavender just began blooming. Oh, how I wish it would look like this for more than a few weeks.
One of the pots on my porch filled with impatiens and purple sweet potato vines – the perfect shade combination.
My sage literally runneth over my herb garden’s walls and I love it. One of my neighbors recently told me that when she walks by, she grabs a leaf and just takes in its aroma for a block or two. I say, go for it!
Now, I must go back and pour myself another glass! Enjoy your Friday!
