Three Things Thursday

Okay, the nuttiest part of my summer is sorta behind me now, so I should be back to posting more often than just on Thursdays. In theory.

1. Last week was Fourth of July, and I created an *awesome* gluten-free, not-a-mix pina colada. Unfortunately, because of consuming multiples of said pina coladas, I have no clue the quantities of each thing I used. But my ingredients included: ice, coconut milk, coconut cream, rum, banana, pineapple juice and pineapple for garnish. Just play around with the proportions until you find something that makes you feel this happy:
Me, on the left, with my two sisters. Can you tell we are all related?
2. It always seems that about this time of the summer, after suffering through triple-digit feeling heat, I start longing for the cool crispness of fall and apples and Halloween and delightfulness. Does anyone else feel that way already, too? I need to start cultivating a repertoire of delicious g-free fall foods. All must include apples. A gf knockoff of a Starbucks pumpkin spice latte that tastes the same might actually score you a prize. And my everlasting affection.

3. So. After being *so proud* of myself for keeping my plants alive ... well, we got hit with some pretty bad storms a couple of weeks ago, and my back porch sorta looked like the beach scene in Saving Private Ryan, but instead of soldiers, our carnage was plants. I tried, gardening, I tried. Looks like I will be attempting again next year.


  1. So weird that you mentioned pumpkin! I've was totally craving some the other day. Naturally my little grocery store did not carry any at the time. Just the "pumpkin pie mix" crap. ugh. I'm sure I can wait.

    Also, hooray for keeping your plants alive! I got a dish garden for Administrative Assistants day in April (or was it May?) and each plant has been dying off one by one. I've been trying so hard to keep them alive. One of them full on went moldy. Too much water?

  2. I like your GF not-a-mix pina colada recipe. I think I am going to have to try that out this weekend. :)

    Fall can not come soon enough, for the crisp air, and buying new clothes because it will be cool again!

    Hope you have a great weekend!
