craving of the week

I haven't been able to manage drinking anything but this lately. But I also haven't puked for a week, so hallelujah!! Still a little gaggy, and a lot tired, but doing much better. I have the best friends who have helped me out so much ( you know who you are!), thank you for everything!

Try this little refresher sometime, it's so good. Here is the official recipe, but lately I just make some lemonade from concentrate, whiz a little of it up with a handful of frozen strawberries and maybe a half cup of sugar in the blender, and then pour it into a pitcher with the rest of the lemonade and stir in a cup or so of club soda.

Hey, and it's even festive for Valentine's Day, pink!
