Wine Slushy

slushy

This is a nice twist on summer time frozen drinks.  A wine slushy! Doesn’t that sound delicious?  It is also really easy to make, most of it can be done ahead of time, and the ingredients are clean and healthy!  This will be a favorite drink while sitting out by the pool, or for a summer night BBQ.  I got this recipe from CoilyLocks.com, and here is the very simple instructions:

Ingredients:

  • 1 bottle of Riesling
  • 2 cups hulled strawberries
  • 1 tablespoon of fresh lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons of sugar

Directions:

Set aside one cup of Riesling in the fridge to chill.  In a food processor, puree strawberries with the remaining wine, lime juice and sugar.  Pour the mixture into ice-cube trays and freeze until solid.  When you’re ready to serve (or drink), puree the ice cubes with the remaining wine in your blender.

DIY Dish Bird Feeder

birds

Spring is coming soon!  The birds should be migrating back any day now.  This is a really fun way to make a feeder from very inexpensive supplies.  You can buy the dishes at any local thrift store, or garage sale.  Then all you need is some hardware from your lumber or hardware store, and some paracord.  The tutorial for this on ErinsCreative is really good too.  Bird feeders are a great way to bring the wildlife close to home, and help feed the animals!
