kitchen // warm weather staples.

after the winter we’ve endured, 50° feels like a dang heatwave. [thankfully the temperatures have surpassed that. and today the high is 75°].

the first day of the year I am able to sit on my patio & enjoy the weather is the day, I go straight to the grocery store & stock up on my patio favorites.

vodka, lime juice, ginger beer, chips, and salsa.

that is the grocery list to a happy summer. at least for me.

kitchen // warm weather staples c/o

what are your  warm weather staples?

I must note it seems it has taken my entire life to find a canned salsa I enjoy as much as the fresh, restaurant stuff ..but I am loving frontera salsa. and for chips, it is always the quinoa & black bean infused tortilla chips from trader joe’s. just saying.

now you know what my plans are for tonight :)

happy wednesday!

blueberry infused vodka.

two words: infused vodka.

one word: amazing.

and the process is so simple. all you need is a mason jar [or a container with an airtight seal]. your favorite vodka. & the fruit of your choosing. in my case, blueberries. or and pineapple.

use approximately 1 cup of berries.

fill the remainder of the jar with vodka. seal. and place in refrigerator for at least 14 days. [the longer you let it infuse, the more the fruit will shine through].

the possibilities are endless.

I’ll be sharing a few of my favorite recipes using infused vodka soon. so get to infusing!!
