Let's all pause for a moment and remember those who have gone before us.

The ones who built what we have now.

In the United States it's a weekend to remember those who died fighting for our freedom

Anyone for a Red, white and Blue Sangria?

Red, White, and Blue Sangria


Strawberries, sliced
Pineapple, cut into star shapes
2 bottles dry white wine
1 cup Triple Sec
1/2 Cup berry-flavored vodka
1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
1/2 cup simple syrup

Combine the ingredients in a large pitcher and stir. Chill in the refridgerator for at least four hours.

It actually sounds good, and after I go out to reset the fence around the garden to bunny proof it for the year, I'm going to need it !

(On a much lighter note, can we have a moment of silence for my DVR? An entire year of Formula one and Dr. Who lost to the gremlins!)
