Sangria 

I had a hard week a couple of weeks ago and I thought I deserved some alcohol. I decided I didn’t want to go for the canned stuff although they are really good over here, so I made a quick sangria. I thought it would be more complicated but it’s like a smoothie only the base is wine and you don’t blend it. HA!

I used what I had on hand so my frozen strawberries and blueberries went in there. I also sliced up some oranges and threw those in. I added a bit of honey to sweeten it and I let it sit for a couple hours then decided it was time. I splashed in some Mitsuya Cider which is similar to Sprite and TADA! A 2 hour Sangria! It was good too. Just what the doctor ordered.

Tarty Triple Berry Smoothie

The other I day I had the fortune to go to Costco! I know those of you in the states its like so what, but here its a big deal. I try to never go on the weekend because it’s as packed as Disney World on the 4th of July! I work in public schools so my weekdays are busy. I’m on summer vacation now so I’m free for 6 weeks. so getting back to Costco….

I was really excited because I was looking to get my hands on some blueberries! I think you remember from my previous post, blueberries, even frozen ones, are freaking expensive! So I get to Costco and i get really excited because i found a triple berry mix! I was so excited I bought 2 bags only to realize that when i got home i would have to shove them in my tiny freezer. (side note: i did manage it don’t ask me how, i still don’t know 😉
