The Merry Month Of May

Julia's Stella & Dot Newsletter

The month of May is filled with the sounds of birds, the smell of fresh flowers and summer breezes from time to time. It marks the end of spring and the beginning of summer. Everyone's looking forward to backyard barbecue get togethers and afternoons by the pool. I am sure your kids are counting the days until the last day of school for summer vacation just like mine are. Who am I kidding so am I, I cherish the remaining days I have of my now 17 year old and 14 year old wanting to hang out with me! :)

From the bottom of my heart, I am wishing all the Moms of children & fur children a wonderful Mother's Day filled with LOVE & a calm Merry Month of May as we finish out the school year and role into SUMMER TIME! :)

The warm afternoons are among us and there is nothing more that I love than a lemony drink. Check out one of my kid friendly or non-kid friendly ;) HungryGirl favorites. :)

Lemonade Faux-jito Pitcher

2 limes, cut into slices
1 cup loosely packed mint leaves (about 1 bunch)
Three 2-serving packets sugar-free lemonade powdered drink
8 cups (64 oz.) club soda
Optional garnish: additional lime slices and mint leaves

**Adult friendly ~ add some Vodka ;) I do Kettle One*

In a large pitcher, muddle (a.k.a. pulverize) the lime slices and mint leaves. (A long wooden spoon works well.) In a tall glass, combine drink mix with 1 cup club soda. Stir until dissolved. Transfer drink mixture to the pitcher. Add remaining 7 cups club soda, and stir well. Serve over ice!
