Sweet Granita!

Last Fall, I picked up a Domino magazine to keep me occupied during our flight to Mexico. I flagged a recipe that looked delish and then forgot about it. I ran across it this week and...YUM! Hubby likes it too, which means it's a keeper.

Blackberry Granita
2 pints blackberries
2 cups water
1/2 cup sugar
1 lemon

Wash blackberries and puree in blender. Strain into larger bowl, discarding the seeds. In a small sauce pan heat 1 cup of water and the sugar until dissolved, and add to puree. Then add the juice of one lemon to the puree. Lastly, add 1 cup of cold water and stir. Transfer mixture to a shallow glass pan and place in freezer. Stir every 20-30 minutes with a fork until the mix freezes (about 2 hours). Spoon over ice cream. Serves 6-8.

Two New Tees

Been an little pre-occupied with a mini home improvement project, but managed to find some time to create two new tee's! Behold "Sweet Cherries" and "George the Giraffe". The Cherry tee is now with Timber's momma, and George has made his way to my darling nephew. Now, back to paint touch-ups, spray painting and picture hanging!
