Hi all. I’m guilt ridden because I’ve been neglecting all of your wonderful comments, which I solicited in my last post (shame on me!) The thing is, I read each and every one of them, and am always so grateful for your kind words and stories. It’s just that my husband’s good friend was in town over the weekend, and right after playing host for him, we were getting ready to take a 10 hour roadtrip back to Michigan for the holidays. We just touched down and 15 minutes later, I’m cutting out some time for a quick post. So, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU for all the holiday memories, and for keeping me entertained with your stories and inspired with your holiday favorites over the weekend. Finally, congrats to our winner — and commenter #13 — Ashley on winning the ice cream machine. As I said before, I wish I could give one away to everyone. But alas, I do not have the means.
Here is a quick holiday-inspired recipe for a guiltless yet festive virgin cocktail. Truth is, I sip on these year round when I’m tired of water (which is rarely, because I fear I may have a water addiction). During the holidays, my logic is that the less I fill up on calorie-laden drinks, the more I can justify eating.
Per one serving
1 1/4 cup seltzer water
2 teaspoons 100% pomagranate juice (such as POM)
4 drops liquid vanilla stevia
Pour ingredients over 3-4 ice cubes and gently stir. Serve.
