Michelob Ultra Light Cider...Refreshing Summertime Drink!


Summertime...synonymous with hot, lazy days, grilling out, and a nice cold beverage to sip on.


I'm not sure I love any season as much as I love summer. Without central air conditioning in our home, we tend to do A LOT of our cooking outside. On the grill. (Hubby is the grill master 'round here...)


And, it just doesn't seem right to grill without a cool beverage in your hand, right?!




BlogHer and Michelob provided me with the opportunity to review their new Light Cider and, scout's honor, I really liked it! I am NOT a beer lover or really much of an "apple-y" girl, but honest to Pete (who's Pete, by the way?) this was dang good!




Mr. Wonderful and I grilled some chicken breasts (and by "and I" I really mean "I just watched") for Chicken Cesar Salad wraps and we decided what better time to try out this new drink that right that very (muggy, steamy, rainy) day?




I'll be honest, at that moment, it was more laughter and chugging beer while trying to snap photos than it was really paying attention to how delicious it was! But, HAVE NO FEAR!! With last weekend being Memorial Day weekend, I spent sometime on the Mississippi River with my parents while the kiddos camped with the Mr.


I brought along a couple of the Light Ciders because my dad wanted to try his had at "reviewing". Man, oh man, you should've seen the sand bar light up when he took out that new drink!


"What is THAT?!"


"Where'd you get that?"


"Can I try it?"


My formerly liquor store employed baby brother and gave it a swig and nailed it when he said, "It's good. Almost a little champagne-y...a little dry." No wonder I liked it...I LOVE champagne!


The apple flavor in it is really quite mild, it's more of a crisp, refreshing drink, than a fruity, apple-y drink.


When I was finally able to have a drink that day (I was "on-call" for work...no drinking allowed!), I popped open one of the Light Ciders, poured it over some ice (I like my drinks EXTRA cold!) and discovered that when I'm not chugging it down because my husband is trying to take a picture of me, it is REALLY quite tasty!


So tasty, in fact, that I sent Mr. Wonderful to the liquor store to pick up some more to have on hand!

Come here looking for the tutorial? It can be found here: Halo Braid Tutorial! Let me know how it goes!
I had something in mind to try on Baby Girl's hair the other day...my best bud, Dr. J, did something similar to it on Belle once, and I was trying to replicate it.
Instead, I got this:

Isn't it pretty?! It didn't take nearly as long as it looks and isn't nearly as intricate as it looks!
Vlog tutorial coming soon...(for those of you waiting, I'm sorry it's taking me so long!)

Halo Braid Tutorial!

How appropriate, "halo braid", no?! ;) Finally, I have this ready for you...I apologize for the delay!
This braid looks intricate, but is really quite easy and quick to pull off...the original video (prior to the warp speed braiding...watch the video to see what I mean) was just a bit over 8 minutes long...not too shabby!
So, here you go...right in time for you to try it out on your little girl for Easter!

Oh, hold it...wait just a sec (again)...actually, I got this recipe from Melissa...yes, the Melissa of this story!
And this story...which, well...is the same story, just told two different ways! ;)
So, you can thank her...I guess.
Well, in any event...prepare your tastebuds to be tantalized!
You'll need this:
And, this:

You'll also need chicken breasts or steak, but since photographing your "main ingredient" is, like, soooo passe, I've left it out. (Ahem...)
Just keepin' up with the times, friend.
So...slice up those peppers and onions into cute little strips...
And...try your best to not slice up the little fingers that are sneaking away pepper strips...
