Five Favorite Things Friday

Happy Friday! I can't believe it's already Sept. 21! Wow, I totally agree with the saying, "the days are long but the years are short!" It reminds me not to fuss too much on the turmoil and nonsense that happens every day at the Cute Farm and to focus more on the things that bring good cheer and make happy memories. So I hope you enjoy some of my favorite happy things!

I have a thing for sunrises this week! Here's another beautiful one I saw in Mykonos, Greece.

I Made These Peach Bellinis!

Bellini Surgelato (Frozen Peach Bellini)
Serves 4

1/2 cup peach puree - chilled 
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp fresh squeezed lemon juice 
1/4 cup peach schnapps 
1 cup crushed ice - more if necessary 
1 cup Prosecco - chilled - more reserved for topping off glasses 

Add sugar to peach puree and place in refrigerator to chill completely.

When your Prosecco and peach puree are completely chilled and you are ready to make drinks, add: peach puree, lemon juice, peach schnapps, crushed ice and Prosecco to blender. Pulse to combine.

Pour mixture into champagne flutes and top off with additional Prosecco. Garnish with thinly sliced peach wedges if desired. Enjoy with good company!

  1. I love the quote from the Dalai Lama. I have moments where I will have to repeat that one over and over. Thanks for sharing!
