Before I begin with my hopefully not too wordy post, I want to thank my possible volunteers for the guest post. I appreciate you all and I know that it takes effort from your side, so THANK YOU! As for the order on publishing the guest post, it will be like ‘first in, first out’. So whoever sends me the email for the guest post first, you will be the first one to go live. I think that would be fair enough for the guests. 😉 Of course, I will tell you when it is when I’m done scheduling everything.
If you have missed the story on why I am asking for volunteers for the guest post, it is because I might be away from the computer. The requirements – no pork or alcohol (or anything related). And the deadline for submission is on August 23rd… so volunteers can still email me. Please take note that in case CONFIRMED volunteers will be more than 10, the others’ post will be published by October, which is my birth month, so you could still offer me your guest post as birthday gift. 😀 Am I selfish to ask everyone to do a guest post for me? 😛
IF YOU STILL WANT TO BE MY GUEST and you did not meet the deadline, that will be great as well. I will still publish your guest post. If you’re game to be my guest, drop me an email. 😉
And now, it’s time for FF#29…
Get your swimwear ready as we will be partying at the pool today…
Aren’t you here yet?
I guess I’ll be alone co-hosting for the time being.
Oh, no!! YOU ARE ALREADY HERE, AND ANGIE, TOO!! That would be fun!!! 😀 😀 😀
Yes, I am co-hosting again with the super amazing and beautiful Selma. I really don’t think this woman needs an introduction at all. But, if it happens that you are new, come and give Selma a visit at Selma’s Table.

As always, thank you, Angie, for creating this amazing party!!
Please bear with me and calm me down when I am on hyper mode. But, I don’t think I will be – I did not even bring sweets with me. 😥 If I will be bouncy and hyper today due to the sugar overload, maybe I will be thrown into the pool… and that is not good. And because I will behave (ehem!) today, I’ll be just right here – giving everyone a glass of this…
and hide some of the sweets
When Selma emailed me about co-hosting FF#29 with her, I immediately gave her [email] a big green. 😀 Felt so excited, eh? And we agreed about the pool party, which of course, approved by our super creative, amazing, talented [and everything] host, Angie. I think Angie hit up the gym so she could look best at her swimwear. Ooopss! Am I even allowed to say that?
Back to my excitement, I realized that my recipe posts don’t always go along with the weather. So for today’s party, I have decided to go with the weather. I was so excited to make this – checked the recipe multiple times, making sure that I don’t miss anything.
Aside from the fruits, I have the other ingredients. I made a mental list for the fruits and bought them.
And it’s time to make the drink…
MINTY PEACH LEMONADE Recipe
- 3/4 cup water
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 3/4 cup packed mint leaves
- 2 cups water
- 4 peaches, washed, pits removed and cut into chunks
- 1 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
- In a small pot with medium-high heat, combine 3/4 cup water and sugar. Bring to a boil until sugar is dissolved.
- Add mint leaves and leave them with the syrup until it has cooled down.
- In a blender, place chunks of peaces and pulse until pureed.
- Place the pureed peaches in a strainer over a bowl and using the back of the spoon, push down the pureed peaches (about 1 cup). Discard solid parts.
- Remove now the mint leaves from the syrup and discard.
- In a pitcher, add in mint syrup, peach puree, lemon juice and 2 cups water.
- Refrigerate until chilled or can be served with ice.

Enjoy the party and have an amazing weekend to everyone!!
Not too wordy post, huh? I don’t think it is. 😛
