I’ve mentioned in a couple of recent posts and newsletters that my husband and I recently bought our first house. Well, it’s moving day! The truck is just minutes from arriving and it’s a bittersweet feeling. We’re going to miss our cute little Austin apartment and all the places and people we’ve come to love since moving here seven years ago. And as I thought about the final recipe I’d prepare in our packed-up kitchen, with just a few odd utensils and appliances to work with, I thought I’d better make a cool, refreshing summer beverage in the spirit of working under a hot sun. Something classic, like iced tea or lemonade. Well, this Tropical Lemonade fits the bill. Whether you’re moving furniture down three flights of stairs, weeding a flower bed, or playing in the backyard, this fun, fruity beverage will help cool you off afterward. You can even use sparkling water if you like a bit of carbonated kick!
Looking for high-quality meat?
The great nutrition conundrum of our times is how to make a healthy diet sustainable, not just for us and our families, but for future generations. It’s no secret that factory farming has been disastrous for the environment, never mind the welfare of us or our food. So I try to prioritize ethically-harvested, sustainably-raised, grass-fed or pastured proteins. US Wellness Meats not only fits the bill, but they also have a huge variety of other products: Seafood, game meats, jerky, bone broth, sausage, tallow, pork rinds… there’s a lot to love. Free shipping combined with bi-weekly deals from their newsletter can make them more affordable than your local supermarket for meat that’s antibiotic-free, humanely-raised, and really, really good.
