A Refreshing Taste of Summer...

Most of us will be enjoying a barbecue in the backyard today while the kids run through the sprinklers and the adults sit around catching up on family memories while sipping a tall glass of iced tea or lemonade. I'm always looking for new and unexpected recipes to add a little pizazz to my "Hostess with the Mostest" here's a refeshing lemonade (with a twist) recipe I stumbled upon and would love to share with you to add to the festivities of your Memorial Day cookout:



1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup water
4 cups cubed watermelon
3 cups cold water
1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
6 cups ice cubes


1. Place the watermelon into a blender. Cover, and puree until smooth. Strain through a fine mesh sieve.

2. Bring sugar and 1/2 cup water to a boil in a saucepan over medium-high heat until sugar dissolves, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat. Stir in 3 cups of cold water and the lemon juice. Divide the ice into 12 glasses, and scoop 2 to 3 tablespoons of watermelon puree over the ice, then top with the lemonade. Gently stir before serving. Sip and Enjoy!!

Memorial Day...We're all Blessed!

On this beautiful day full of family get together's & great times made with great memories let us not forget the memory of all those who gave their lives for our freedom and those that are still fighting for it. As we go through our day today...find times throughout the day to say a prayer for those who are seperated from their families and also pray a little prayer of comfort and peace for those who are thinking of their loved ones that gave their lives for us...strangers we'll never meet but through their sacrifice we're given the freedoms to have what we have today. Thank you to all the men and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice! I am forever grateful and you will always be Heros to me!

What are you thankful for and how have you been blessed this Memorial Day?  I'd love to hear your comments and thoughts.

Have a blessed day everyone! xo
