15 mint leaves
1/2 ouce fresh lime juice (or bottled is fine)
1/2 ounce mint syrup
2 ounce rum (light rum is best)
1 ounce club soda
Muddle leaves with lime juice and mint syrup. Add ice & rum. Shake well. Top with club soda & mint sprig. Every time I make this recipe it uses up all my spearmint in my garden!
Mint Syrup Recipe
1/2 cup heated simple syrup (simple syrup is just 1 part sugar to 1 part water melted together)
1 cup mint leaves, chopped

My Carrot Juice
2 cups fresh organic carrot juice
dash of ground cinnamon
dash of grated nutmeg
less than 1/8 tsp ground cloves
Pour all into glass and drink! I was thinking about the flavor of this juice with the added spices, and it kind of resembles carrot cake! So, I am thinking that if you were to add a creamy milk to it like hemp or hazelnut, it would be like carrot cake! It's just a thought.
I love antique stores, so last time I went to Nebraska I stopped in quite a few. I bought this old wooden bread box with this cute warming tile inside for $1 I think. I love it!
Sun-dried Tomato Focaccia
3 cups unbleached white flour
1 1/2 cups warm water
1 tsp agave
1 1/2 tsp sea salt
1 Tbsp fresh rosemary
1 Tbsp fresh oregano
pinch of black pepper
1 to 2 Tbsp olive oil
1/2 cup sundried tomatoes
I threw all this in the breadmaker and put it on the dough setting. That look about an hour and a half. Then, I put it on the bake setting, because I had to go to breakfast with someone. Normally, I put the mixture in the oven to make the dough, because I like how it turns out better.
I had "sausage" patties with Daiya cheese for breakfast yesterday. Today's lunch was a fresco bean burrito and a 7 layor burrito minus the sour cream and cheese with a side of guacamole.
