So, what has happened since I left you at St. Patrick’s Day? Um…
I didn’t die, yeah! But I was insanely sick for about a week. Hence the lack of posts.
Girls had its season finale. Thoughts? I love/hated it. Half of me is like, ‘Aww, Adam!’ because what girl doesn’t want some guy to come and rescue her? Like even just a tiny bit? Come on…you so do! Even if he’s as creepy as Adam. Because nothing says ‘I Love You’ like your ex dumping that prissy new girlfriend of his and sweeping you off your feet…even though it looks like you haven’t showered in a month…and you have a crusty raptured ear drum…and you’ve been wearing that oversized t-sirt and no pants forever…yeah, that storyline was clearly written by a girl. BUT, the other half of me is like, “really, Hannah? Get off your butt and get your crap together. You don’t need a guy!” So yeah, I’m clearly bi-polar on the whole thing. Share your thoughts.
Speaking of season finales, Taylor Swift is set to guest star on New Girl during the season finale. I’m about to explode from excitement! It’s my two biggest girl crushes on one show. Yes. Please!
I got instagram from my phone. I am now addicted. It’s like facebook but better cause you get pictures! I know I’m like 2 years behind on this trend…
I also got Spotify Premium. Best $10 a month purchase ever. I had to get rid of Netflix but being able to listen to any album, ever, anytime I want on my phone is way better then getting a random DVD, forgetting I got a random DVD and then paying $9 a month for 3 months for one DVD that you end up watching and hating. Truth.
What else? Easter happened. I didn’t give you one single Easter recipe. Why you ask? Because Easter usually ain’t my thing. I dont love pastel colors, and jelly beans and scary giant bunny suits. Also, mom cut me off from getting an Easter basket this year. I mean, I’m only 27! Whatevs. I did end up making the worlds cutest baskets though for some friends with homemade goodies. I will share that with you later this week…mostly so I have another chance to lament on how I didn’t get an easter basket this year! Whatevs.
Here is something that has nothing to do with Girls or Spotify or Easter, though. Its Orange Grapefruit Orange Sorbet and it’s so good you’ll want to cry.
Orange Grapefruit Sorbet
modified slightly from How Sweet Eats
- 4 1/2 cups of fresh squeezed grapefruit (if you can find 100% all natural grapefruit juice, no sugar-added, that is an option)
- 1 cup of fresh squeeze orange juice (again, all-natural juice can be used)
- 1 1/2 cup vegan cane sugar
Combine 1 cup of grapefruit juice and all of the sugar in a saucepan over medium heat. Whisk until sugar dissolves, cooking for about 5-6 minutes. Remove from heat and pour in a large bowl, mixing it with the remaining grapefruit and orange juice. Refrigerate for 25 minutes, or until chilled.
Once chilled, pour the mixture in your ice cream maker and churn according to the directions. I used my mom’s KitchenAid attachment and churned it for 25 minutes. After churning, pour in a container and freeze for 6-8 hours until frozen.
It’s no secret Jessica is one of my favorite bloggers. It’s also no secret that my most favoritest non-vegan treat ever, which I always end up cheating on my vegan diet with, is ice cream. So when I saw that Jessica posted a vegan-friendly frozen treat that could help me break my scandalous affair with ice cream, I died of excitement…and then I waited two months to make it. Fail. Don’t wait two months to make this! This is the best sorbet I’ve had. It’s refreshing and a perfect balance of tart and sweet. And Delicious! I’m telling you, don’t wait to make this!
