Something Exciting!

Earlier in the week I mentioned that I had some news to share this week. Today I am proud to share that I have become a writer for a site called Kids Cuisine. Kids Cuisine is part of The Well Fed Network, and I am thrilled to be a part of the new site. Today my first article is up and I couldn't be more excited. If you haven't checked out Well Fed recently, you really should. There has been a wonderful site redesign recently and many new sites have been added to the network. Check it out when you have a chance.

In honor of my celebration today, I thought I would quickly share a cocktail we will be having during the Thanksgiving weekend. I was in the juice aisle yesterday when I spied a Blueberry-Pomegranite Juice, and immediately the wheels started turning. I was drawn to it, and immediately thought it would be excellent in a champagne glass topped off with sparkling wine. I picked up a bottle of Spumanti to give it a try before the weekend. All in all, it's quite addicting. For the coming weekend I intend to pick up a package of individually frozen blueberries to put in the glass as "ice", and for a bit of interest. There's not really a recipe, but here are my vague directions.

"Drop two or three frozen blueberries in the bottom of a tall fluted glass. Pour 1 1/2 ounces of blueberry pomegranite juice over the blueberries. Fill the rest of the glass with the sparkling wine of your choice. Enjoy!"

I really, really want to try this juice mixed with the new Stoli Blueberi, but premium vodka is hardly on our "approved frivolities" while we're budgeting, so it will have to wait. In the meantime, the sparkling wine and juice makes a fun little drink to celebrate family and friends with, and perfect for Thanksgiving weekend.

Is there a little something odd about celebrating writing about kids' cuisine with alcohol? ;)

ha!!! I thought the same thing! ;-) Congratulations on this new opportunity! bTW, I love the idea of using frozen fruit as ice.

Lol! I hadn't even thought of that. Although it's odd in itself that I am posting about alcohol- we seldom drink.

However, you could make this 100% kid approved by swapping in sparkling white grape juice for the sparkling wine... does that make it better?
