Blood Orange white wine cocktail


ย  I saw blood oranges at Trader Joe’s and just HAD to make a cocktail with them! ย I had a bottle of Savignon Blanc leftover from a dinner and decided to use that as my base for this cocktail. =) ย This was such a wonderful and refreshing mid-week drink!

Here is my recipe:

1 (750ml) bottle of white wine (I used Savignon Blanc)

3 Blood Oranges Squeezed/muddled

1/4 cup of Brandy

2 cups of 7- Up (or any lemon lime soda)

(and i wished i had some mint to muddle with the blood oranges or add as a garnish)

Toddler Meals

I’ve been making toddler meals for Charlotte these days and it has been sooo fun.  

I try to put something with protein or fiber for the main meal with a fruit for dessert and a dairy or other nutritious element in the last little box.  So far the meals have been hit or miss.  Charlotte either loves the items I put out or tries to throw it all on the floor (plate included).  I love watching c discover new textures and flavors.  

Here are three plates I made below for Charlotte.  Right now I’m working to inncorporate different foods and also try bringing back some items she didn’t like.  I read that a baby is supposed to try it 7-10 times before you give up.   Worth a shot if it means Charlotte will like broccoli!  Lol

  
   

Saturdays

Woke up super early this morning bc of a sick baby :(. On the plus side it means I was able to grab some food this morning before the rest of the neighborhood woke up.  

I’m obsessed with this kale, edamame salad (trader how’s) and a vanilla latte with half the powder (coffee bean).  ๐Ÿ™‚

Cheers to the freakin’ weekend!!
