I love Saturdays. I especially love Saturdays spent with my family at sporting events. Today, we are spending the day at my daughter's volleyball tournament.
Her team is doing well and it's a lot of fun to watch. If you have ever been to a tournament, you know it can be a long day...playing and then waiting to play :)
My hubby and I are currently spending our waiting time relaxing in the truck with the heat on...it's chilly outside.
He is sleeping(snoring) and I am reading my new issue of Vintage Style Magazine. It's especially interesting this month as my dear friend, Shelley Price, has her home featured. Check out pages 24-31. So very pretty. Congrats Shelley!!! www.sweetpeahome.blogspot.com
While browsing the issue, I ran across a recipe for Lavender Limeade. Doesn't that sound refreshing? You know me and good recipes...I always have to share!
Here you go, Lavender Limade.
6 heaping teaspoons lavender
12 cups water, divided
2-3 cups sugar
1 1/2 cups freshly squeezed lime juice
1 1/2 teaspoon salt
Lavender sprigs for garnish
Lime slices for garnish
Mix lavender, 3 cups water and sugar to taste in a saucepan. Boil gently for 5 minutes.
Strain out the lavender and add the now lavender-infused simple syrup mixture to 9 cups of water, lime juice and salt. Mix well and serve ice cold. Garnish with lavender sprigs and sliced lime.
Make about 14 cups.
Looks like this recipe might be from the book Sip and Savor" by James Farmer T. Farmer III.
Have a great Saturday!
