The Juice is Worth the Squeeze: Fresh OJ (A Taste of Summer in Winter)

Thursday, March 9, 2017

Today, we are outside soaking up the vitamin D that is pouring down on us from the sun. It is so beautiful out today. There's a nasty rumor going around that predicts that winter is coming back this weekend. I hope it's a lie. I hope it stays like this forever.

It's not that I don't like winter.

No, that's a lie.

I just don't like winter.

I like just enough snow for the girls to enjoy for a few days, then I'm over it! I'm a sunshiny, palm tree lovin', key lime pie eatin', Cuban coffee drinkin', wake me up when it's spring kind of girl! I struggle with winter. It happens. It's cold. I feel smothered inside. I feel like the whole world hit 'pause'. Not even the ants come around anymore. 

And, on February 2nd, I find myself using ridiculous hashtags like #notmygroundhog. 

One of the consistent things about life is that we have to sometimes deal with things we're not crazy about. I combat the winter blues with a touch of Florida. A few years ago, that meant watching Burn Notice, eating Key Lime Pie, and drinking Cafe Bustelo!
Currently, we're in love with this little orange juicer that Mr. Incredible found at the thrift store for .75! I think we saw the same one at Wal-mart for under five dollars, so they're not hard to come by! I just have to share it with you. 

It took a few oranges to get a good cup out of it, 
but it was the sweetest and freshest glass of OJ I had had in so long! 

If orange juice tasted this good out of the container, I'd drink more of it. You do have to put a little bit of muscle into it, but the juice was worth the squeeze!
