Actually, I took 2. When your daughter hugs you and says, "Mama can you be done working now," you say yes. Then you take the day off. Then you take 2. These beautiful photos were taken by Chloe from our first backyard celebration in 2 years. It was more than time. Cut flowers in small jars, homemade pesto (with basil from the garden), roasted marshmallows to make s'mores with dark chocolate frosting, and the tasty little drink that I am yet to name.
Food can be simple for a backyard party, pesto pasta salad and tuna kicked up with apples, raisins, dill and apple cider vinegar can be wrapped in lettuce leaves. A light supper that even the pickiest child can find a way to eat.
1/4 cup (or more) vodka
1/2 cup triple sec
lime juice from 1 fresh lime
1-2 tsp agave
Fill up the blender almost to top with the cantaloupe pieces and then add the other ingredients in amounts to your liking, mine are guides, soon to be perfected. Blend it up and taste. Adjust until you reach your best sip. Makes about 4 drinks.
