Cucumber Grapefruit Cocktails

There is something about cucumber in a drink that I absolutely love.  It seems weird right, how could a vegetable make a cocktail taste good? But it adds a sort of freshness that you don’t get from anything else.  I love it in water as well.  Grapefruit is something I didn’t start loving until recently and now I can’t get enough of.  If you’re not a grapefruit fan, which I know many people aren’t, you may try substituting lemon or lime in this recipe.  I think both would be absolutely fabulous.

Frisée and Grapefruit Salad

When we were travelling in the States Adam picked up a Creole style cooking magazine.  He and I LOVE Creole food but I don’t know the first thing about making it.  Look forward to some of that coming hopefully really soon if it works out for me! One recipe in this magazine that kind of threw me for a loop was this frisée and grapefruit salad.  I mean is that the first thing that comes to mind when you think of cajun cuisine?  Certainly isn’t for me, but it looked so fresh and summery that I couldn’t resist trying it out.  Now this isn’t really my type of salad in that I usually like something heartier. However, as a side dish it is light and refreshing and a great way to add some wonderful, fresh flavours to your meal.
