Sonic Grape Limeade




Another addition to our Cinco de Mayo feast was this Sonic Grape Limeade. Not having been to a Sonic in years, I can't comment on how closely it is to the real thing, but it is very tasty. Many thanks to High Heels & Grills for this recipe.

This mixture is quite tart. I think you could get away with only using half a can of limeade. Adding ice does tone down the tartness as the ice melts. I would recommend using half of the limeade, preparing the punch, then tasting to see if you want to add the full amount of limeade.


Sonic Grape Limeade
Makes about 10-12 servings

Ingredients:

  • 12 oz. can limeade concentrate, thawed (see notes above)
  • 2 pkgs. grape kool-aid
  • 2 liter bottle Sprite
  • Fresh limes, optional

Directions:

  1. Combine limeade and kool aid until no lumps exist.
  2. In a large pitcher or bowl, gently mix together the limeade/grape mixture and the sprite until well combined. Be sure to stir gently so the punch doesn't go flat early.
  3. Slice your limes and add it to the mix.

Neiman Marcus Chicken Salad

This tasty Neiman Marcus Chicken Salad has a secret ingredient that gives the texture of the salad a wonderfully creamy texture. What is it ? Freshly whipped cream folded into the chicken, almond and grape salad. It works and it is wonderful.

Serve on a bed of curly lettuce, with crackers or on a croissant. Enjoy!

Mexican Dorito Casserole

I'm not even gonna pretend that this anything but what I call "Trash Food." Every once in a while trash food is the best kind of food, comforting and totally delicious. Mexican Dorito Casserole fits that description perfectly. Enjoy!

Stick of Butter Rice

This delicious side dish was a hit at my house. The raving over this recipe was intense. To put it mildly, everyone loved it.


Personally, I felt that the amount of butter could be cut down a bit in this recipe. I'll leave that up to you guys to decide what you think is best. I think I would go with 1/3 cup and see how that goes next time around. If you have unsalted butter I'd also recommend that you go with that, instead of the standard salted butter. Between the condensed soup and broth, it can get a bit salty.

Note that for this recipe you want to use standard white rice, not instant rice. Enjoy!

American Flag Strawberry Poke Cake

Get ready for an insanely delicious and patriotic dessert, an American Flag Strawberry Poke Cake. This is a fun one to have the kiddos help decorate. We've made this cake for a few forth of July celebrations now and it is always a huge hit.

An alternative and even simpler way of making this cake would be to use raspberries instead of the strawberries for the decoration on top. You could even use raspberry Jell-o as well. Enjoy!

Big Crumb Coffee Cake with Rhubarb

I tried out this delicious recipe from the wonderful blog Smitten Kitchen. The only thing I forgot was to add a dusting of powdered sugar on top. I love rhubarb so this was a winner. Enjoy!
