The Monsoons are Coming!!!
Hope all of you had a wonderful 4th! It was a very low key fun evening in...no fireworks for us but the fam watched the Bucket List and ate gelato out at Frost : )
It's been hot and yucky out and I've been feeling a little blah until last night! It dumped rain for a couple of hours - thunder and lightning, lots of wind so it cooled everything down to reasonable temperature! We opened all the windows (something you don't do too often in Tucson during Summer)! At last the monsoons are on their way! Relief!
This weekend my mom made a wonderful dessert from Pamela Clark's book entitled "Cupcakes" ~ here's a shot of the froufrou's! Oh my gosh they were delicious! Raspberry and Coconut ~ you can't go wrong in my book! We drank a bottle of Raspberry Framboise Lambic too.
: ) If you haven't tried this stuff you have too! This is what we served at our wedding instead of champagne...if you love a spritzer type drink it's perfect. It's the only alcohol that tastes just as good cold as it does room temperature! Oooooo and it's not too sweet either ~ think refreshing and fruity!
