white sangria… tastes like summer ~

White Sangria From Helen Jane

4 peeled and sliced kiwis
1 bag frozen sliced peaches
1 container of strawberries, sliced thin
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup white rum
1/4 cup Grand Marnier
2 cups white grape juice
1.5 L Pinot Grigio or Sauvignon Blanc
Lots of ice

Throw all the fruit in bottom of a large pitcher or punch bowl and sprinkle with 2 tablespoons of sugar. Pour 1/2 cup white rum on top of the fruit and let it sit for about an hour. Pour the big bottle of white wine in there with about 2 cups of white grape juice. Add more sugar if you need it.

Stir, add ice cubes and chill.

yes dear boy, you HAVE chosen wisely…

Ty brought this home from school today. It says…

“I let my mom sleep inn and not wake her up. She get’s up on her own.”

(spelling and grammatical errors aside – I love this)

Kris hates to ride bikes with me, because I love to do this. Ride with my feet between the handlebars. Downhill. It freaks him out, but I do it anyway. Not sure why it doesn’t scare me,because when I was 10 I fell off my bike while doing this and tore the hell out of my knees. Had to walk a block to get home, and by the time I did my Nike’s were red instead of white. Pleasant, I know.

And yet.

Every now and then I still get the urge to jump on my bike and find the tallest hill in the neighborhood. I just wish I still had my lime green bike with the banana seat, flower basket, and glittery tassles. That would be perfection.
