{August 31, 2011}   Persephone – Back to the Real World

Persephone was a bit worn out after her fun-filled vacation, but now she’s back in action. This past week she whipped up a batch of Watermelon Margaritas and some Asparagus Salad for my book club friends and then continued to get her fruity drink on while watching Project Runway. On Sunday, she took a day trip out to the Davis family farm for some fun in the sun with old friends from Athens. One of them even brought her a playmate.

P also came with me to work today. Right now she’s proofreading a few emails. Hopefully she won’t cause a ruckus. Right after work I’m taking P to her first Atlanta Braves game. Hopefully they won’t discriminate and will let her in the gates! Tune in tomorrow to find out!

P’s Watermelon Margarita Recipe

1 seedless watermelon, cubed
1/2 bottle white tequila
4 limes, juiced (reserve limes post-juicing)
1/2 cup triple sec
1/2 liter sparkle water

Puree the first four ingredients in a blender. Pour into a pitcher and stir in sparkle water. Drop in the reserved limes. Serve over ice and enjoy!

P’s found the Asparagus Salad recipe in Cooking Light (I’ve shared my obsession with her) and it was SO good that she wanted to share it with you.

Also, P is ridiculously excited to meet Karin Slaughter this weekend at the Decatur Book Festival!
