You may not be able to actually munch on any of these quirky calorie-free treats, but I wouldn’t fault you for trying as they certainly look good enough to eat. Is it wrong that I want to fill that gilded burger locket with a dab of ketchup? Ha!

friday grab bag - June 13 2014

Happy Friday! Toby underwent some minor surgery this week to get a funny looking growth removed, and to say I was a ball of nerves would be the understatement of the year. My furbaby! Luckily everything went smoothly, and the real challenge now is to make sure he doesn’t run around like a lunatic, which is easier said than done. You can’t keep this pup down for long! This week I’m loving…

danmala flowers by kathy klein

Aren’t these floral creations stunning? The vibrant colors, textures, and patterns all work together to form the prettiest eye candy. Arizona-based artist Kathy Klein calls them danmalas based on a mashup of the vedic sanskrit words dan (“the giver”) and mālā (“garland of flowers”), and she leaves them out in nature for people to discover and reflect upon. “The danmalas remind us all to listen to the unheard voice of nature, creation, and the eternal mystery.”

white sangria recipe

In our household, white sangria is the unofficial drink of summer. It’s so fruity and refreshing and easy to make that ANY occasion becomes a reason to break open a bottle of wine. Making brunch at home? Let’s make white sangria! Doing some reading on the patio? Let’s make white sangria! It’s Friday? Let’s make white sangria! We, umm, really like this stuff.

So here’s my go-to recipe that’s a cinch to whip up and packs a punch!

White Sangria (adapted from Allrecipes.com)

1 750ml bottle of white wine (Yellow Tail Sauvignon Blanc is cheap and works well)
½ cup vodka
4 generous tbsps frozen lemonade concentrate
1 tbsp sugar
diced assorted fruits like strawberries, peaches, and green apples

  1. Combine the white wine, vodka, lemonade concentrate and sugar in a large pitcher, and stir until everything is mixed well
  2. Add the diced fruit and throw it in the fridge for an hour or two to let all the flavors meld together
  3. Serve over ice and drink up!
