Did everyone have a fantastic 4th of July? Despite a few rain showers (which prevented me from tanning myself at the beach), ours was pretty good here in ol’ Chucktown. I ate far too much, as always. We go to this potluck every year and I load my plate up with the most random bits of grub. But it’s all deep southern classics, like mac n’ cheese, pulled pork and fried chicken, who I am to say no to that? Plus, it’s a holiday. Calories don’t count right? And today is Friday so they don’t count either which is why I’m going to drink 14 glasses of this perfect summer sangria.
Look at all of that fruit? It makes me want to dance. The funny thing about this sangria is that I made it, like, a month ago while we were living at the old house (weep, weep!) for work and then realized I never actually shared it on here. Other food bloggers, does this ever happen to you? I actually only stumbled upon it because I was searching for an older photo for work and WAHLAA! Here sat this beautiful sangria just begging to be shared.
And what better time to enjoy a nice cool glass of sangria than on a STUPID hot day like today. I love the south with all of my little heart but HOT DAMN the summers are brutal down here. Which is why I’m going to plant myself down on an inflatable pool bed with a big mason jar of this and call it a day.
That’s if the weather holds out. If someone is knowledgable on Indian keep rain away dances, please do share the technique with me. The level of pale I’m reaching is becoming a national hazard.
