Sick Computer

Hi everyone! Well, it looks like my computer has a virus and not feeling too well. So its been taken to our friend Carlos' house for some TLC. Unfortunately I wont have it back until after the weekend so I wont be able to blog until then as it has all my photos on it.

However, I'm not going to leave you with nothing today. This morning, I came across this Martha Stewart Recipe for White Wine Sangria. If the weather is supposed to be lovely where you are this weekend, this will definitely get the party started. Maybe serve it with a strawberry rhubarb pie? I pulled the rhubarb from my garden yesterday and made one. I'm not going to post the recipe because it was like soup inside but it tasted DELICIOUS. I dont care if I have to eat it with a spoon!!

Yield Serves 8


6 cups assorted fruits (such as mango, pineapple, cantaloupe, and apricot), sliced or cut into chunks
1/4 cup thinly sliced peeled fresh ginger
1 to 1 1/2 cups fresh basil or mint leaves
1/2 cup orange liqueur, such as Cointreau
1 bottle crisp white wine, such as Sauvignon Blanc or Pinot Grigio
3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice (from 1 lemon)


1. In a large bowl or pitcher, combine fruit, ginger, basil or mint, and orange liqueur. Mash gently with the back of a wooden spoon until basil is bruised and fruit releases juices. Add wine and lemon juice and stir to combine. Refrigerate 1 hour (or up to 1 day). To serve, fill eight glasses with ice and top with sangria.

Have a wonderful weekend everyone!

Keep it Beautiful.
