It’s Almost Time To Partee!

by Angela (Oh She Glows) on July 25, 2009

Good morning!

Wow did yesterday ever fly by. I spent about 8 hours cleaning and prepping for the party today! It felt so good to get everything done ahead of time though. Now today all I have to do is throw the stuff into the oven/crockpot and I’m basically laughing! :)

We had crazy rain storms yesterday…


Now onto Eric’s big shop…

  • Rolled Oats
  • Colgate toothpaste
  • Green Works Natural Cleaner (First time using it I hope it’s good!)
  • Febreeze (Vanilla)
  • Reduced Sugar Strawberry Jam
  • Mushrooms
  • SOYA Cheddar Cheese
  • Watermelon (first one of the summer can you believe it!)
  • Orange pepper
  • Cayenne spice
  • Unsweetened applesauce
  • Organic vegetable broth
  • PAM
  • Banana flavouring
  • Sweet onion
  • Red pepper
  • Coke (he snuck that one in! lol)
  • Italian Bread
  • Milk (not shown)
  • Almond Breeze (not shown)


  • Fresh herbs: Thyme, Parsley, and Rosemary.
  • garlic


My favourite health supplement: Algae!

  • Egglplant


  • Italian bread for the garlic tomato bread

First up was the Watermelon Rosemary Granita!


Of course I modified the recipe :)



  • 1/2 Watermelon (Basically filled the blender)
  • 3 T Agave
  • 1 T fresh lemon juice
  • lemon zest (optional)
  • Fresh Rosemary (1 sprig finely chopped)
  • 7-8 cubes of ice (only just prior to serving)


Oh yes. I have big plans for this concoction!

Kristi, Kerrie, and I have our names written all over this drink! Prior to drinking it, I am going to crush the ice in it and mix in some vodka. It should be awesome!



I also made a slew of other things yesterday (including a S’moore Glo Bar!!!) that I will be unveiling this weekend.

Well, I am off to hopefully squeeze in a workout and finish cleaning before everyone arrives around 1pm. I have a couple posts going up later today (1 in the afternoon and 1 in the PM) that I scheduled ahead of time. So even though you will ‘see’ me posting, I won’t really be on the computer! Sneaky eh!? ;)

My sisters and I will be TWEETING today and tonight, so be sure to check us out on Twitter!

Sounds like a fun and delicious day for you! I need to figure out how to schedule posts; it would definitely be easier for my schedule!

Holy Yum! I am totally making that watermelon concoction. That looks unbelievably delish. Have a blast tonight!

Can i ask what the spirulina does??


Brianne July 25, 2009 at 9:20 am

Just wanted to let you know that air fresheners ie febreeze are extremely bad for your health. They are one of the most toxic things you can put in your home!


Pam July 25, 2009 at 9:28 am

Have a great time and eat/drink for me…he he!


Jen July 25, 2009 at 9:44 am

That granita sounds interesting and good!

Great job on Erik’s shopping trip!! My husband couldnt do that, he doesnt like grocery stores and would probably come home with many of the wrong things! ;)

Have FUN with your party, how fun!! and I hope you get some SUN today after those storms yesterday.

I LOVE the Greenworks cleaner. One of the best I’ve found!
The drink looks fabulous!

Have a wonderful time! The drink looks and sounds delicious…


Mara @ What's for Dinner? July 25, 2009 at 10:13 am

Can’t wait to see the rest of the party food!!! That drink looks amazing, I love anything with watermelon.


Heather @ Health, Happiness, and Hope July 25, 2009 at 10:28 am

Sounds like Eric did a good job with the shopping trip. I’m certain your guests will love that watermelon drink. YUM!

I was wondering if you could talk about why you take the specific supplements that you do?

I’ve read so many conflicting opinions about what is good and bad to take, and how much, and especially being a vegetarian I want to do it right but I have gotten so many mixed messages.

Hope the party goes great!


Lauren (Runandrejoice) July 25, 2009 at 11:10 am

Have fun today! I love being well prepared for company, it really allows you to enjoy the company instead of running around like a crazy!


Jennifer July 25, 2009 at 11:27 am

Mmm, that granita looks so yummy! Hope you have a fun party! :)

PS: I didn’t even know there was such thing as an algae supplement! Does it work well?


Cait (Cait's Plate) July 25, 2009 at 12:03 pm

can’t wait to see the s’moores bars! i’m drooling just thinking about them!!


Jen July 25, 2009 at 12:06 pm

I use that Greenworks cleaner and their toilet cleaner, too – they’re pretty good! I think they have a bathroom cleaner too which I want to try, but I have to use up my other stuff first. Have a great visit with your friends & family!


Kelly July 25, 2009 at 12:34 pm

Oh man, let us know how the drink turns out! It sounds delicious.


Michelle Hisae July 25, 2009 at 12:40 pm

I LOVE the color of that drink. PINK RULES! :)


Susan July 25, 2009 at 12:51 pm

Please don’t send those rain storms to the Maritimes!! (but feel free to send along some of that watermelon drink ;) ) Have fun today!!


Angela (Oh She Glows) July 25, 2009 at 1:03 pm

I’d love some info on Febreeze if anyone has it!!! :) ~A
