So I know I've been very sporadic about writing posts. It's been kind of a rough time for me. As I've said in the past (like last year at this time) I struggle with depression and anxiety and lately it's just kind of been a frustrating time for me. I kind of did a really stupid thing...I take meds for both issues and I was feeling so good that I thought I didn't need them any more...So I've learned that's a terrible idea. And now I'm fighting to get back in the right mind, but it's ok I'm coming back and it's looking good. And I have my wonderful husband to thank for this, he's been very supportive and together we're coming back to normal :)
So enough about that! I've been thinking a lot about what I would like to write about on this blog and I've been wanting to try a bunch of new recipes. And also I want to honor my grandmas, both of whom are wonderful cooks. My mom's mother (Grandma G) we just lost this summer, and I have been thinking a lot about her and all the wonderful times we had with her. Almost all my memories of her were in the kitchen and oh they are good memories :) My mom has 3 sisters and we used to go to grandma's house with all my cousins and grandma would make chex mix or forgotten cookies, or a million other things that were wonderful. And my dad's mom (Grandma N) is also a great cook we used to go to her house for Christmas Eve and have ham and potatoes. mmmm mmmm! Oh now I just want to go to my grandma's house for dinner :) We really have a great family and my husband was thrilled to learn how wonderful my family can cook. When my family gets together we don't even plan for dessert, everyone just brings some sort of dessert. It's a wonderful life! :)
Since it's Friday and it's the start of the weekend I thought what could be more fun than a alcoholic beverage? That's right the first grandma recipe I'm going to share with you is for Peacharino :)
Now this is a super simple recipe because who needs a complicated recipe on a Friday? Not me!
2 peaches with the skin on
6 oz lemonade concentrate
6 oz vodka
yes I know that's 4 peaches not 2, I was just excited about peaches
Pour everything into the blender and then fill it up the rest of the space with ice. Hit blend and in moments you'll have a frosty summertime beverage.
I hope you enjoy this as much as me and my family do.
God Bless and have a wonderful weekend.
