So, yesterday we went over to a friends house and snacked and drank our way thru two football games. We stopped at the grocery store on the way to our friends house to pick up some goodies (shrimp and Sangria fixings). While we were there, I grabbed a Luna Bar. I was starving and needed something to fill me up.
By far, my favorite flavor.
Once at our friends house we snacked on shrimp cocktail
Potato chips and homemade ranch dip
Chips and pico de gallo
And chicken wings. I didn’t get a picture of them.
We made a delicious Red Wine Sangria
Which I thoroughly enjoyed!
Here is my recipe for Red Wine Sangria
- 1 bottle of red wine (I like to use merlot or zin)
- 1 bottle of ginger ale (I use diet, you can also use club soda or sprite)
- 2 red apples, sliced
- 2 green apples , sliced
- 1/2 cup grapes
- 1 peach, sliced (optional)
- 1 lemon, cut in half, slice one half
- 1 orange, cut in half, slice on half
- 1 cup blackberries
- 2 shots of brandy
In a large pitcher pour in the red wine and 2 shots of brandy. Squeeze in half the lemon and orange. Next, add the apples, grapes, peaches, blackberries, lemons and oranges. Place in the fridge for 30 minutes to chill the wine and soak the fruit. When you are ready to drink the Sangria, pour in the ginger ale. I like to use almost equal parts ginger ale and wine. You can add as little or as much as you like. Serve and enjoy!
After a day of football, I was worn out and ended up going to bed by 8pm! Yes, 8pm! I woke up at 4am ready for the day!
On the agenda for today- finish the laundry (I don’t know how but somehow we acquired even more), yoga, Costco, mop the floors, head to the bank , finish all the wedding thank you notes and also stop by one of our gyms to clean! We are so excited for the football game tonight. Our Vikings play the Jets!
Now onto Morning Meditation!
Motivation for Today: Vikings game! That means I need to be positive and get thru my to do list today so I can enjoy the game and not think of other things I should be doing
3 Things I am Thankful for Today: 1-Vikings play tonight 2- There will be no more laundry to do in a few hours 3- Sunny blue skies!
Goal for the Day: Make sure I don’t put yoga off, my body needs to stretch
Motivational Quote of the Day: There is only one person who could ever make you happy, and that person is you. David Burns
