Two Recipes

Last night I made this Thai chopped chicken salad. I saw the recipe on Pinterest. I try to only pin recipes I will actually make/look like they would actually work and be good, and this one was a total winner!

I followed it pretty exactly, although did use a 1/2 bag of prepared coleslaw instead of chopping up cabbages. Also, I just happened to have edamame in my freezer, but you could easily leave it out and not miss a thing. I know the ingredient list is long, but I promise it's not that intimidating!

Dan & I both really liked this salad, and it was delicious for lunch today!!

Next up, good old summer sun tea. I don't know why it took me so long to make this this summer!

Chuck 6 tea bags in a pitcher or big jar. Pour in some boiling water, to fill about 1/4 - 1/2 the container. Let it steep for about 6 hours or overnight.

Add 1 can of lemonade concentrate, and 1/2 cup sugar. Fill container with water and mix it all up.

Since I am a pregnant lady, I decided to make my iced tea with raspberry leaf tea. I also added in some blackberry Torani syrup. Dan's not allowed to drink my iced tea, but don't worry, he just made a batch of beer, so he's covered for summer refreshment!

    I'm commenting because no one has commented, and comments are fun. Does the raspberry leaf tea taste good?

    Home brewed iced tea is a constant in our home in the summer. We call it "tizzle". Do not ask me why, because I do not know. Every now and then we make it in winter and then call it "frizzlin tizzle". Yes, we are weird. I make it the exact same way as you said, except only use 3 tea bags and 1/3 cup sugar. It's our favorite. Okay, it's the female favorite.
