Spring is chock full of birthdays for our family. My mom, dad and daughter were all born within a couple weeks of each other. That means extra efforts must be made to ensure that each family member feels special on his/her special day. Read More
Cheers to the weekend! If you don’t grow mint in your garden, you really should. Yes, it can be invasive, but it’s a small price to pay for having such an important cocktail ingredient readily available. My mint has been taking off like crazy this year and so I knew it was time to harvest some of it to whip up some mojitos. Checking the fridge to see what other ingredients I had on hand, I was very pleasantly surprised to see that blueberries were still available. Usually my son devours them within minutes of me unpacking the groceries. It’s an expensive habit that he’s developed. Time for him to get a job. He’ll be three this year, after all.
So here’s your Fruity Friday Cocktail for this week (if you missed last week’s Pineapple Mule, you can check it out here).
serves 1 (you’ll probably make more)
1 handful of fresh blueberries
1 sprig of mint
1 oz. lime juice
2 1/2 tsp sugar
2 oz. white rum
2 oz. club soda
Muddle the blueberries with the mint, lime juice and sugar.
Add the rum and stir to combine. Pour over top of ice in cocktail glass. Top with club soda. Stir gently.

This past weekend, we spent some time outside, planting some seeds in trays to start inside, until it’s safe for us to plant them outside. The best part about living in the South is that spring comes pretty early!!
Then we dropped in our seeds, covering them with a tiny bit of soil, and labeled our rows.
