Weekend Recap

Our Friday dinner party at Rebecca's was a lot of fun.  The cocktails were delicious!  We made an adaptation of Weight Watchers Raspberry Lemonade Vodka Slushies.

Here is our adapted recipe:

  • 6 cups Crystal Light raspberry lemonade (or light drink mix of your choice)
  • 8 oz La Croix sparkling water - lime flavor (or sparkling water of your choice)
  • 8 oz vodka
  • 1/2 cup lemon juice
  • 6 oz raspberries
  • 1/4 cup mint leaves
Prepare Crystal Light with water and pour into ice trays and freeze until solid.  To prepare drinks add one ice tray full of raspberry lemonade ice cubes, 1/2 sparkling water, 1/4 cup lemon juice, 1/2 cup vodka to blender and blend until smooth.  This recipe makes 8 cocktails...each blender full is 4 servings.

Each of our glasses pictured contained two was that kind of week (lol).  We had extra raspberries and we added them to the last blender of was delicious and made the color a much brighter pink.

For dinner Rebecca made Skinny Taste's Crock Pot Chicken Cacciatore. It was delicious.

And salad!

We had a very nice evening at Rebecca's.  Look at these awesome lights she got for her backyard.

Saturday I went shopping with my sis-in-law and found this cute vase as the beginning of my hall table decorations.

Saturday we watched the soccer did Italy get run over by Spain.  Spain played awesome.  Unfortunately I had bet the husband that Italy would win so I owed him 15 bucks.  Oh, was the 15 bucks I had already won from him betting 5 bucks a game on other play off matches.

I hope you had a great weekend!  This Monday is my Monday and Friday...starting tomorrow...stay-cation!  Wheee!!!  Have a great day!
