Tropical Fruit Punch Iced Tea

Because it’s going to heat up very soon, I made you some tea—a Tropical Fruit Punch Iced Tea. And I layered it because, why not? Sure I could have just stirred it all up, but who doesn’t like to have options? And this way, the layered look makes it party-chic. Of course, either way you pour it, stirred or layered, the resulting taste is the same—glorious.

The grenadine’s slight 
tartness tempers the sweetness of the pineapple juice just enough to keep the tea the star of the drink, while giving it a tropical twist. And trust me when I say you want to keep Tetley’s Black & Green tea the star. The duo blend lends the best of two teas, the robust flavor of black tea and all the health benefits of green tea.  

Power Salad with Jalapeno Dressing

Happy hump day. Let’s do a power salad to get through the remainder of the week. Well, at least I had to.

My littlest guy is 20 days old and I’m exhausted. Luckily, recovery during post-pregnancy is going well, but slower than I have patience for. I still can’t lift anything too heavy and have to ask Matt for help. Along with that, his cooking duties continue—a great thing, since I’m overflowing with work deadlines with the baby arriving earlier than expected.

Peanut Butter & Honey Mini Pies

Forget being dainty, open wide and you’ll be able to have these frozen peanut butter pies in one bite. Sure it’s not necessary, but it might be if you are in the company of others who are doing the same and there is a limited amount.

Let’s celebrate eating the way it should, that is without all those pesky etiquette rules. I’m not advocating this all for every situation, but in the company of those near and dear who’s to judge how you take your bite.
