Christmas Punch


Christmas Eve was so fun. We had my mom and dad, siblings, and their families over. I decided to try this punch recipe. It originally calls for Lime sherbet. Did yall know that if you don’t purchase this in advance it sells out like crazy during the holidays?? I did not. Next time, I’ll know. I ended up getting rainbow sherbet. It still tasted great. My mom and I liked it the most.

I was really impressed by how hubby participated. I didn’t expect him to do much though. He wanted to show his son that he could do anything though. I admire that about him. Like I revolve myself around them, he revolves his world around us. I just love him so much. He’s an amazing man. I’m so proud of everything he does and what he fights through.

I halved this recipe.

2- 2 liters ginger ale

46 oz pineapple juice

2 pints of sherbet


maraschino cherries

lime slices

lemon slices

Mix all together. Serve.

Pineapple Lemonade


This recipe was handed to me from a friend. Oh grief, I don’t like lemonade at ALL, but this is AMAZING. It’s so good and so inexpensive to make, I’m planning to make it for our crossover ceremony for cub scouts. Hopefully it’s a hit there, but I’m telling you 7-11 year old boys are vultures. They’ll eat and drink almost anything. Last week at scouts, we had a pack meeting. Our pack has decided that our pack will provide a “celebration” cake/cupcakes/cookie cake for these meetings as a once a month celebration of birthdays. It was two other mom’s and me in the kitchen and here we are making lemonade (the regular kind) and cutting cookie cake…as fast as we could get it cut and get the drinks poured they were coming in two’s. It was crazy. I literally felt like I had a stampede heading in my direction. I didn’t know if I should pour drinks faster, duck, or turn and run too. In the end, we saved the day. The three of us pulled it off and all 40 or 50 people who were there had cookie cake and lemonade if they so desired.

1 cup country time lemonade mix
