I'm welcoming summer early and in the spirit of a new season I'm sharing five new things I'm excited about:
1. Mango sorbet: mango isn't my favorite fruit, but recently my sister, brother-in-law, and I made homemade sorbet by blending half fresh, half frozen mango with a little bit of water. No sugar is needed if your mangoes are ripe enough (ours were!), and it's a super yummy, healthy, perfect-for-summer snack.
3. Elderflower lemonade: I found this gem at Whole Foods, and it's got a touch of sparkly fizz, a delicious flavor, and it's small enough to fit in your purse if you need to sneak it into a movie, say, Fast and Furious 6 (hello, fun summer movies!).
5. HBO's True Blood! The new season starts on June 16. Now that I have to wait for Grimm to start back up in the fall, I have my favorite summer guilty pleasure to hold me through until then (as well as a ton of DVR to catch up on!).
What are you excited about for this summer?
