Quench your thirst with this exquisite recipe!





Hi Everyone,
Lately I've had a hankering for something other than water, since I don't drink soda, I've come up with something close but yet, won't send you into a coma from a sugar overdose...
Now I must confess I have a little luxury most of you don't. Unless you are living in a warm climate like me :)
I have 2 grapefruits and oranges  trees in my yard...
creating this drink is easy, but you can always pick up the citrus from the grocers or a fruit stand..

Ready to try this wonderful recipe, that I guarantee will quench your thirst?

Here are your ingredients:




1. Steep 4 the teas in 4c of warm water, for 15 mtes in hot water, not boiling...
2.Remove tea bags, combine the seltzer water and squeeze the grapefruit, stir, add Splenda.
Voila done!


Do you have a drink recipe you live by?

This week Menu

Yahoo was nice enough to create a kewl dinner menu I luv..
The best part is, I have all the ingredients to tweak the menu a bit.
My shopping for the week end up being  $27.89.. Now next week I am going to have to spend more to replenish the pantry. I figured with the upcoming sales it should be no more than $75.00.



What's on your menu this week? How much did you save last week?

Have a great day,
Maggie

I forgot to say how jealous I am of you!!! There are two main reasons I would LOVE to move to Florida.... 1 being closer to WDW and 2 so I can have fruit trees IN MY YARD!!! My grandparents used to own an orange grove in Florida and oh how I miss it....

Mmmm!!! :) Wish I was eating at your house! I managed to burn a boxed, prepared Mongolian Beef dish from Costco tonight (& I didn't even forget about it by doing something else; I stood there with my timer's going, stirring it on occasion). Now that's embarrassing! :(

Thanks for sharing the recipes for the refreshing drinks...I miss living in San Diego with all the great citrus trees!
