White Watermelon Sangria

I had the best watermelon ever after the Rockville Twilighter and now I’m all about watermelon. We were left with a big bowl of watermelon after our recent watermelon carving experiment. So, I made sangria. I was inspired by Kitchen Play’s July Progressive Party. Each month, Kitchen Play hosts an online party with a sponsored theme. This month’s theme is summertime dining with CUTCO. I love our CUTCO knives (but don’t tell my husband because I wasn’t happy when he bought them; they are a bit pricey). Those knives are the ones I reach for first when cooking. They made slicing fruit for sangria a cinch. White Watermelon Sangria Inspired by Summertime Sangria from Nutmeg Nanny 3 cups white wine 1 cup ginger ale 1 cup watermelon, blended 1/4 cup sugar apple, lime, orange slices Stir ingredients together and refrigerate for two hours. Serve over ice. Garnish with fruit. What’s your favorite summertime dish? This Kitchen Play Progressive Party … [Read more...]

Turnip Greens And Rice and A New Prime Parents Club Post

Our CSA started up again two weeks ago so I've been having fun with veggies -- or trying to anyways. I'm determined not to let any veggie go to waste this summer. So far so good, although, I'm not sure how many salads I can eat. Going to have to get creative there. This week's veggies included turnip greens. What in the world do you do with turnip greens? They look like leaves. I probably would have mistaken them for lettuce if there hadn't been a label on the bag. So I googled and found a lot of southern-style recipes, all a little too complex for my purposes. I finally found a recipe on FoodNetwork.com for Turnip Greens & Potatoes that I adapted for the ingredients I had on hand. Here's my version: Turnip Greens And Rice Ingredients: turnip greens 1 tbsp olive oil 2 cups rice Dressing: 1/3 cup olive oil 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar (I used a dark chocolate flavor) 1 tsp lime juice 1 tsp minced garlic 1/2 tsp paprika salt and … [Read more...]
