A couple of years ago, some friends turned us on to the Paloma Cocktail. It is a light drink with an edge of citrus. Not too sweet. Not too sour. See The Perfect Summer Drink if you’d like to read my original post on making one glass at a time.
This drink has become popular with many of our friends. It’s tasty, so you look forward to it. A good size to hold onto for awhile. And the alcohol content is low enough to (hopefully!) allow you to stay within the boundaries of good decisions.
One evening last summer, we were invited to a White Party and asked to bring a batch of our favorite party cocktail.
Have you ever been to a White Party? It’s pretty simple. Everything is predominantly white, from clothing and decorations to food. It’s just one of those goofy things that takes a small bit of imagination and turns out to be a lot of fun.
Let’s start by saying that this Pollo Verde is delicious. It’s a classic dish that’s easy to make and relatively inexpensive. But it bears saying again, “It is oh so delicious!” When friends come out of hibernation and start gathering together to celebrate the beginning of the warm season, it’s the perfect time for a party. Last night, we joined our fantastically wonderful group friends for a pot luck dinner.
Theme … Mexican!
I like authentic Mexican food. When I say “Mexican food,” I mean real food made with healthy, lively ingredients. Distinctly fresh, light and classically delicious.
With weather getting warmer in the Northern Hemisphere, not everyone would think first thing of baking. However, I believe there’s never a bad time for Pecan Bread! It’s delicious and I make ours in a bread machine! Not a hot job! . . .
It’s Spring! YAY!!!
While I earnestly believe that change can start at anytime (see my return article, Time to Jump Back In!), Spring is the perfect time to ramp oneself back up, again.
Fresh air! Birds singing! Daffodils blooming! Spring always gives me a fresh burst of energy.
The last couple of years have been a crazy run of one medical problem after another – actually all tied together. The whole thing seriously wore me down.
What this ordeal taught us is that most of our medical ills, including my lifelong struggle with Crohn’s Disease, have been caused by, or, at the very least, kerfuffled by diet.
