I sent Brian to Aldi (my idea of frugal heaven) a few days before Christmas and he came home with everything on my list and some type of fruit that I could not identify. Conversation:
Me: What are those?
Brian: Pomegranates. They were on sale for less than $1 a piece.
Me: Oh. Ok. What do you do with them?
Brian: I'm not sure. We can just google it.
And they say women are impulsive buyers for things that are on sale.
A quick google search showed that you actually consume bits of things that look like seeds. And each piece of fruit gives you a lot of seeds. A LOT. We had 4 of these things. We had also received a huge crate of nice oranges from my mother-in-law. An abundance of fruit, just before Christmas? Sounds like it's time to search my pinterest board to figure out a way to use it that involves alcohol!
Original recipe can be found here, but I changed it to involve the oranges (instead of limes). I also left out the grand marnier because we didn't have any, and it's expensive. We keep it classy!
- 1 bottle white wine (I used chardonnay)
- 3 cans 7up or Sprite
