How was everyone’s Memorial Day Weekend?
Mine was wonderful!
First I’ll start with Friday. I went down to a friends for drinks and a little dinner party.
First off, we decided to make a pinterest inspired recipe, Peach Wine Coolers
Here’s what you need:
Bottle of White Wine (We used Pinot Grigio, really though, you could use your favorite.)
Mix the sliced peaches (drained), Peach Schnapps, a pinch of Kosher Salt, and a little bit of wine in the blender.
Now, this is where our impatience came into play, the original recipes calls for you to cool in the fridge for about 2 hours. Well, we just threw in some ice, topped off with more wine (which is instructed), and added a Rasberry for garnish, something we just thought would be yummy, which it was.
It was really good! A very light drink and summery drink. Definitely recommend. If you prefer a sweeter wine, I think this would compliment a Riesling very nicely.
I’m not sure what happened to my picture of the actual main dish, but we made a pizza bake that you can find here: http://pinterest.com/pin/52987733086144032/
It was really easy and simple. But I was totally going crazy over the salad we made with the avacado slices.
Overall a very good night.
On Saturday boyfriend had to work, so I met up with my sister for some lunch, we tried a new Mexican place down the road from my house. Then I went home and cleaned. Saturday night really started our Memorial Day Celebration which included a lot of beer, screw drivers, good friends, and good food.
Sorry for the lack of photos, we also started going through our “Closet of Doom” since we turned in our 60 Day Notice to move. Pretty excited about that, but by the time the friends came over each evening, photos were kind of the last thing in my mind. I’ll get better I promise.
To end though, here’s a cute photo of friends new puppy.
