Today is...

not only is today Groundhog Day:

But it is also Change Your Windshield Wipers Day!  Hahaha.  The other day when I was driving around with Keith he said, "Don't be mad at me... but I had to do it." I was so confused but he said I would realize what he meant in a minute.  Haha.  When I first showed him the calendar I had printed off with all of the "strange" holidays on it, he told me he would change his wipers on February 2nd and let me take photos of it to share on my blog. But last week they were driving him crazy and he had to buy a new one.  So, I don't have any photos of him changing them to share... hahaha.  Today is also Kiwi Fruit Day!  I love kiwi!  I haven't had any in quite a while though... I just found this recipe for kiwi mint lemonade that I had to share with you.

Kiwi Mint Lemonade
  • 1 cup (250 mL) water
  • ½ (125 mL) cup granulated sugar
  • ½ (125 mL) cup packed fresh mint leaves
  • 3 California kiwifruit
  • 2 to 3 lemons
  • Sparkling water

Directions

  1. In a medium saucepan, heat water with sugar over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally until sugar is dissolved. Simmer, uncovered, 5 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in mint leaves. Let stand 20 minutes
  2. Meanwhile, peel kiwifruit and cut into chunks. Puree in a food processor. Place puree in a pitcher. Strain cooled syrup into pitcher, pressing on mint, then discard leaves. Refrigerate until cold. Squeeze juice from 2 lemons. Stir into kiwifruit mixture. Taste, squeeze in juice from remaining lemon for a tarter lemonade.
  3. Pour into glasses. Top with sparkling water. Serve garnished with a slice of kiwifruit. Makes about 2¼ cups (550 mL) without sparkling water, enough for 4 drinks.
Sounds kind of delicious!  I've been working on a new project, I just started it yesterday and I have already gotten pretty far!  I'll be sure to take some photos to share it with you guys.  Can't wait to have it all finished!   Keith & I are going to go to De's house to hang out in a little bit, I hope you guys all have a great night!  Happy Change Your Windshield Wipers Day!  Haha.
