I was playing with my cousins on Sunday evening at a family gathering and hurt my foot. Mind you, I'm one of few girl cousins and all of my cousins play football - it isn't hard for me to get hurt!!! I didn’t think it was anything more than a strained muscle until today when our chiropractor expressed her concerns that it might be a stress fracture. We are going to monitor it and see if it gets worse. If it doesn’t feel any better by Wednesday I am going to go to the doctor and have it checked out.

Mint Ice Tea

What is more perfect on a hot summer day then a ice cold glass of sweet mint tea? Not much! This is a recipe from a family friend...easy, simple, and delicious!

  • 4 cups of water
  • 2 cups of sugar
  • 2 cups of fresh mint (Spearmint, Peppermint, Chocolate mint, whatever. I used spearmint and chocolate mint here.)
Bring the water to a boil and stir in sugar until dissolved. Steep the mint leaves* for 8-10 hours and strain. Thats it! This makes a concentrate. 1 cup of concentrate to 4 cups of water. You can freeze the concentrate for later!

*Use only the leaves. Stems make it bitter.
