The Perfect Day

With a dip in the temperatures, LA has been gorgeous this past weekend. You would think that this weather would provoke outdoor activities. Quite the opposite in my case. Leaving our doors and windows open all weekend has made our apartment a sort of breezy paradise. This photo pretty much describes my day. It's close to four and I haven't left the house. I bought some cool finds at goodwill yesterday and i've been playing dress up all morning.
Also, this morning, i unveiled my first batch of Sosuke's special touch sangria. It's named thus because when making it, our cat decided to dip his curious paw in it. Anyway, i threw on my "Pink Martini" Pandora mix and made homemade chilaquiles to go with our sangria. It was delicious. After brunch and countless glasses of Sangria latter, Morgan and I took a well needed nap. Life is good!

Sosuke's Special Touch Sangria Recipe:

1/2 cup brandy
1 bottle of red wine.
The juice of one orange
1/3 cup of lemon juice
1/3 cup sugar ( can be omitted because it was rather sweet, i think the fruit works enough sweetness into the mix)
1/3 triple sec
1 apple cute into small pieces
1 orange cut into small pieces
a couple maraschino cherries
4 cans of diet ginger ale.

You basically mix everything together except the ginger ale and store overnight in the fridge. In the morning, take out your glasses and ladle the mix into your cup and add as much ginger ale as you want and enjoy!
