I want to share a fun evening I had with 3 of my closest friends in the world. We have been friends since high school. Melanie brought her Vita-Mix machine and made the best drink. She peeled lemons, limes and oranges, some honey, a little sugar and a splash of vodka. Put them all in the Vita Mix, top it off with ice cubes and whirl!! I am talking about refreshing citrus drink that kept us going the whole evening. Not a seed to be found! Another “Got To Have” machine! I can see an endless amount of smoothie options in my future!!
I have to confess, I did purchase the dessert. If you have a Fresh Market near you, you have to try the Raspberry Almond Cake!! This is the second time this week I indulged. Both times to celebrate birthdays. A moist white cake sandwiched with raspberry preserves and custard. It is covered with an almond paste mixture that is then lightly toasted and surrounded with toasted sliced almonds. My mission: A La Carte Kitchen will develop their own Raspberry Almond Cake attach a beautiful photo. Look forward to it in the future! As soon as I can get back into my kitchen and cook!
