Yesterday was rough.
You know when you watch a football game and you have such high hopes and you get the peach tea and the cupcakes ready and everyone comes over and you sit down to watch because you know that you know that you know….
….your team is going to win.
There’s a fumble. And a facemask penalty. And a holding penalty. And they go for it on fourth down in the last minutes of the game and you think that this is the moment when they will take back the lead and win.
And in super sad news they are unable to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat.
Cowboys—I’m so sorry. You tried hard. You really did. But the game just didn’t work out like we both hoped it would.
If you are in the neighborhood? I have peach sweet tea. It might make you feel better.
It worked for me.
Here’s my mother-in-law’s SUPER easy recipe for peach sweet tea.
This is the recipe that my mother-in-law has been making for decades.
Every time I have a party and she makes it?
Everyone wants to know the recipe.
I’m making it now. The twins just had a party and they called her up to ask her how to make it.
It’s just that good.
And all you need are two ingredients.
Easy peach sweet tea
Crystal Light Peach Tea
Canada Dry Ginger Ale
1. Pour one large Crystal Light packet into the drink dispenser (or pitcher).
2. Pour one liter of ginger ale into the drink dispenser.
3. Mix with spoon.
4. Make sure to leave enough room in the pitcher or drink dispenser for the foam.
This creates a LOT of foam.
If I am adding another packet and another ginger ale, I wait for a couple of minutes or the foam will overflow.
Your peach tea is ready to serve.
Here’s mine ready to go in the CUTEST drink dispenser that I found at Walmart.
It’s under $12 and it comes with a stand so you can put cups under it when you pour and the spigot is easy to work.
You can see it here.
I also found this three-tiered display serving piece.
It comes with the three white platters (that I’m using to decorate with, too).
And it comes apart for easy storage. You can twist it different ways to fit your display and it’s super affordable, too.
You can see it here.
Hello Thanksgiving. I’m looking at you.
I found these glasses at Walmart here for .97 each.
The Grateful and Blessed plates were right inside the front door at Walmart near the fall display.
You can see the serving bowl here and the platter here.
It was an amazing time.
Even though our team lost, we still had fun.
And peach sweet tea.
Can I ask you a favor?
I found this at Walmart too.
A slow cooker with THREE different cookers.
It’s not very expensive and I’m thinking of all the parties that I have coming up and I know that this will be the star of the show.
But if you’ve been reading this blog for a hot minute you know that I’m cooking challenged.
I was going to put queso in one of them—but what should I put in the others? Dip? Beans?
Do you have any ideas?
Can you help a party planner out?
Can you leave any suggestions you have in the comments?
In the meantime, I have a cupcake calling my name.
With a side of peach sweet tea.
