This is SO GOOD!
This is a version of my fabulous sister-in-law’s recipe. Grow some mint and try this. Mint is very easy to grow but be selective where you put it because it is invasive. This is a great container plant.
1 ½ C sugar
1 C water
6-8 sprigs of fresh mint
Combine water and sugar. Bring to boil to dissolve sugar. Remove from heat and add mint. Let sit for several minutes. Strain leave
Fresh pureed fruit (raspberry or strawberry is wonderful) you can use frozen
1 Can of lemonade or fresh lemon juice, water and sugar to taste
1/4 Can of cranberry juice (adding water to taste)
Mix and serve chilled
Viking Dinner -
It is great fun to throw the kids for a loop once in a while. Try something really out of the ordinary. The kids love the unexpected. When the normal is, mom cajoling for chores to be done and dad coming home tired from work, it is easy to come up with a shocker. I covered the table with a plastic tablecloth. When it was time for dinner, we called the children. The kicker was my hubby decked out in medieval clothing. I dressed the part too, but my husband outdid himself.
When the children were seated, we slopped a glob of spaghetti on the table in front of them. They had to eat with their hands. For drink they cupped their hands as we poured water into them to slurp. Honestly, we had more fun than the kids. Well, maybe not…those teenagers ate it up .
