Lazy Saturday

There are few things better on a hot Saturday in July than hanging out with some good friends, and doing a bunch of nothing!

This morning, our good friends Chrissie and Brent came over and hung out with us. Chrissie is a few days past her due date (bless her soul!), so they brought breakfast and they boys played video games, while Chrissie and I vegged on the couch, watched some Harry Potter and hung out with our puppies!

After grabbing a late lunch, they went home and Eric and I ran to get some last minute supplies for the quilt I am putting in the nursery.  This afternoon was topped off when we made some Tropical Watermelon Sorbet, thank you, Giada! We saw her make this the other day on the Food Network and knew we had to give it a shot.

I have to share the recipe and I think everyone should try this! It is so delicious and so easy.

Watermelon (3 1/2 cups chopped up into about 1 inch pieces)
Juice from 3 limes
3/4 cups Ginger Ale
1/2 cup Grenadine
1 small can (6 oz) pineapple juice

Put all the ingredients in the blender and blend until smooth.  Then pour into your ice cream maker and make according to your ice cream maker's directions!
(Apparently the ginger ale can be replaced with dark rum, so we may have to try that one next summer!)

It is delicious and refreshing - and gluten and dairy free! Give it a try, and then thank Giada!
