Summer may actually be here…
This may be the first morning in over half a year that I have had….no plans.
So I am going to sit, in the warm Summer morning, swing quietly on the porch swing, and let the cool breeze play over me.  And it is going to be amazing.

To celebrate, I’m making myself a tall glass of iced tea with a just a hint of sweetness and a touch of mint.

Do you have a moment?  Make a glass, put your feet up, and celebrate with me.

Mint infused simple syrup:

-Several sprigs fresh mint
-1 cup sugar
-1 cup water

Put sugar, water, and mint in a sauce pan, whisk together, and bring to a boil. Boil until it forms a syrup, remove mint and keep in a closed container in the fridge to use as needed.


Make your favorite iced tea (I used green tea…decaffeinated, because goodness knows I don’t need the caffeine).  Add as much or as little syrup as you’d like…I added a few teaspoons.  Toss in a sprig of mint, and relax!
