Broiled Grapefruit Daiquiri

Broiled Grapefruit Daiquiri |

Hey Guys! I’m happy to report that this week is definitely on the upswing, which is a great feeling. I took some time away from online things for the past few days and it was most definitely therapeutic. I finally caved and ordered a  Spiralizer® (affiliate link) and C and I spent yesterday morning spiralizing everything we could get our hands on. I’m not 100% sold on it yet, but it’s definitely got potential. My little lady and I also spent a good deal of yesterday morning watching old 80’s cartoons on YouTube. This is when I realized a few things:

  • Many shows most definitely did not stand the test of time (I’m looking at you, Shirt Tales).
  • Gummy Bears has the best theme song for a cartoon. Ever.
  • Muppet Babies totally appeals to current day 5 year olds. C was engrossed and watched 4 episodes in a row.

I didn’t say we had a productive day, just a nice one.
