Sometimes I come across a recipe that I just have to make. Usually it’s full of sugar, cheese or something else that’s going straight to my thighs (damn you delicious food!). Such was the case with this Cucumber Basil Soda. It sounded unbelievably refreshing and seemed pretty easy to make. And aside from the simple syrup, it’s not super bad for you unlike regular sodas. It comes from one of my favorite restaurants, California Pizza Kitchen. I’m a big fan of CPK and when a brand new restaurant opened up right by my house, you know I had to check it out and eat all the things.
I like pretty drinks and I cannot lie. And I LOVE TV. “Have I mentioned that before?” she said sarcastically. I look forward to the new fall TV lineup for months. I DVR about a bazillion shows a week. And my happy place, each night, is watching TV in bed. But a girl can only invest herself in so many series’. This drink is inspired by a show that I know I would have loved when it premiered and am so looking forward to binge watching. I call this recipe ‘Pretty Little Lemonade.’
Amen. The kids are back in school! So grab your mom friends and share some watermelon mimosas in celebration! And in preparation of my youngest finally being in school for a full day, I’ve prepared a list of the Netflix movies and TV shows I plan on watching. Because I can.
Do your kids love to have a lemonade stand? Mine do. And while we usually have them to teach the kids about earning money and get a very elementary look at running a business, this time we did it a little bit differently. We partnered with French Bull for Cheeky Home to share ideas on how you can hold your own lemonade stand and make a difference in someone’s life.
