Bourbon Slush

9 cups water, divided
3 black tea bags (or 1 family size)
1 cup sugar
12 oz frozen lemonade concentrate
6 oz frozen orange juice concentrate
2 cups bourbon

ginger ale, chilled, for serving

In a small saucepan, bring 2 cups of water to a boil.  Add the tea bags and steep for 10 minutes.  Discard the bags.  Stir in the sugar until it dissolves.

In a large container, combine the sweet tea, lemonade and orange concentrates, 7 cups of water, and 2 cups of bourbon.  Place in freezer for a minimum of 6 hrs, but preferably overnight, until the slush is firm all the way through.

For serving: scoop slush into a tumbler, top with ginger ale, stir and serve with a straw.

Recipe doubles well.

Baptism Luncheon

On March 18, 1990, in honor of DD#4's baptism,  we hosted a celebratory luncheon after church.
16 adults and 12 children enjoyed the menu.

Honey Baked Ham
Peach Salad
Broccoli Salad
Steamed Carrots

Frosted Banana Bundt Cake
Lemon Bars
Brownie Bars

"Spending and Being Spent for Christ" was the title of Joe Morecraft's sermon expositing
 II Cor 12:11-19.  It is available online at SermonAudio.

We even have the baptism vows/charge on cassette.

What a blessing to be able to listen again to these.

PS  Still looking for more pictures of this event.

Pink Yarrow

Working Pantone's 2017 Spring palette into established closet inventory is proving to be easier than I thought.

Last year I purchased this Columbia rain jacket and had already gotten lots of wear out of it, when I spied the color on this season's list.

Dressing daily for work is less of a chore when I pretend like I'm painting a portrait.

What do you think?

Fashion on Fridays

Greenery - Pantone's 2017 Color of the Year found in my closet!

In keeping with the spirit of my fashion blogging, I'm hope to stay current by adopting fashionable colors;

and by utilizing items I already own.

Sometimes the newest styles dont suit my body type.

Hence, accessorizing with the palette becomes not just a way to organize but also a way to prioritize.

This Franklin Covey satchel has served me well over the past several years by keeping office documents organized.

Today I may empty it and use it in place of my everyday handbag.

How are you incorporating *Greenery* into your style?

PS  That's Madame Golovin painted by my mother, who was copying Elizabeth Vigee-LeBrun's work.
