Day 314: Health Food Store

image

Sorry this blog is so late for today! I unexpectedly got called in for work.

While visiting my brother, we went to a health food co-op store. The deli had many pretty things behind glass. I particularly liked the zucchini bread muffins.

I have tons of cushaw that need to be cooked up. Cushaw bread with chocolate chips and cinnamon-y spices? I think it is worth a try.

I also bought some lavender dry soda. Lightly sweetened, but otherwise tasted similar to a seltzer water with a yummy lavender flavor.

I decided to do this with them: Make mint and lavender mojitos. Using half simple syrup and half lavender soda, rum and fresh mint.
What do you think? I cannot wait to try it!!

Day 150: Essense of Summer

While visiting my brother and sister-in-law we had mojitos. Even better,  we made mojitos at home.

Fresh mint, tart lime, sweet simple syrup, white rum, and cold ice. Yessssss

It is the perfect summer drink or if you love mojitos enough it is the best drink hands down whatever time of year.

To me,  having these drinks was the precursor to my birthday celebrations. I have a long to do list this year so it will extend several days.
