Summer sweet blueberries add just the right sweetness in this Blueberry Mojito, with lime, mint and rum.
Summer is flying by. The kids have 3 weeks until school starts and I am so not ready for the chaos ahead of me. My eldest is going to start middle school. I am trying not to think about that either. Middle school. Ack! I’d rather sleep in with the sun pouring into my room.
I’d rather snuggle with my kids under the covers and giggle. I’d rather go to the beach or take a swim in the pool. I’d rather take a sip on this Blueberry Mojito.
So, I will keep this post short. My SEO analyzer won’t like that, but I don’t really care.
We are swimming in blueberries right now. Blueberries, strawberries, peaches, you name it. Every summer fruit is stocked in my house. The kids and I are enjoying a fresh fruit coma everyday of summer and it’s pure bliss!
In one day the Professor can eat an apple, 2 peaches and a plum or two and still have room for watermelon, grapes or papaya. Middle Child will consume an entire 6-oz container of blueberries in one sitting in between an apricot or two.
And my Princess likes it all, but especially her raspberries which she likes to eat after sticking them on the tips of her tiny fingers.
Me? I’ll happily sit back and drink my Blueberry Mojito, enjoying these last few weeks of summer.
