Breakfast Quesadilla

There are two foods I can never get enough of: coffee and Mexican food. So, it was only natural that I would eventually come up with a Mexican dish I could justify eating with my morning latte.

Orange-Ginger Spritzer

Happy halfway through the week! This is just a mini post to share a refreshing little number I made the other night. I only had a tiny little bit of my favorite ginger ale left to go with my big ole bowl of popcorn, and that was not going to work. So, I pulled an orange out of the fridge, juiced it, and poured that and the ginger ale all over a glass of ice. Oh, it was good. Next time I’m going to try it with grapefruit juice—sort of like a salty dog that’s a little light on the salty. Mmm, I can already taste it… Cheers! (Clink.)

Orangie-Beet Juice

I’ve never been a big beet person, and I’m still not—EXCEPT in juices. Makes no sense, but I’ve always been weird like that. I’m also the girl who likes all things chocolate except chocolate ice cream. Why? No idea. This juice is among my favorites. The orange and carrot juice totally mellows out the, well, beetieness of the beets, and adds just the right amount of sweetness. And the color is awesome. 🙂 Enjoy!
