Warning! The recipe you are about to see is NOT kid friendly. But it IS very adult friendly. I’m going to share a white sangria recipe today that I found through Southern Living Magazine. I’m not a huge drinker, but my women’s cooking group was getting together last week and the theme was Cinco de Mayo, so I figured, it wouldn’t be a complete event without a little sangria in the mix.
And while I’m on the topic, if you enjoy cooking and you haven’t been a part of a cooking group before, you really should join one (or just start your own like I did.). It’s such a great way to get out of the house and enjoy a little “you” time with your fellow woman. And, of course, you don’t need to be a woman to start a cooking group either. When we were living back in Texas, we were members of a couples gourmet cooking club. Now, THAT, if you like to really cook, was fun. We would take turns hosting and the meals would be absolutely amazing. I loved (and still do love) challenging myself to cook and try new things.
Food is so much more than just something to nourish your body. It’s a way to meet people, to learn about new cultures, to teach yourself new skills, to celebrate special occasions and to celebrate friendships. It brings people together and nourishes us in so many different ways. I can’t imagine a world where food didn’t play an integral part in making it what it is today.
Ok, now that I’ve got that off my chest, here are a couple pictures I thought I’d share from our Cinco de Mayo celebration (I’ll bet you can almost here the mariachis in the background):
