okay. i'm a day late. but i have good reasons! it was the first night of preseason! we were replaying the cardinals in an epic rematch to prove that yes, we were supposed to win the superbowl.
this month's first barefoot recipe was a great nod to my 21st annual summer of existence: mango banana daquiris, chosen by veronica of Supermarket Serenade. once again, my failure to check what we actually have at home before going to the grocery store (no, we did not have bananas) forced an adjustment to the recipe (original found here). i omitted the bananas, used frozen mangos, changed up the liquor, and made it into a sorbet!
my dad is working at home this week, and he was on a conference call at the kitchen table-turned office all afternoon. like the quick-thinking, adaptable chick that i am, i simply took my operations to the laundry room and closed the door.
the alcohol in the sorbet will keep it from freezing solid, which i found to be a problem with my last sorbet.
i don't have any photos of the sorbet, as we haven't eaten it yet. i'll post something fun once it's consumed.
