Happy No Waste Wednesday!

I encourage you to use up all your leftovers by turning them into new dishes. As a result, we waste less food and we get to try new things!

Today I’m making mojitos!! I don’t know about you all but the entire time I was making my Mint-Ginger Infused Limeade, I kept thinking to myself “this would make a great mojito”.  Think about it, all of the key ingredients are already there–mint, sugar, lime.

I was so ready to sit by the water and soak up the sun while enjoying a good magazine and a tall glass of limeade. Tell me that don’t sound amazing.
