Wonderful Summer Cocktail

Delicious summer cocktail- juice 1/2 lime or lemon in to glass, add 3 slices cucumber, 4 mint leaves ripped up, and 1 tsp simple sugar- muddle.  Add ice, and lime soda water- stir, garnish with slices lime and serve!

Gertie's Tapenade- Easy Fabulousness

 Tapenade from heaven!  This stuff is delicious.  Use it on everything.  It's great on pasta.  Cook pasta, add Gertie's- could not be easier.  But it's also great on sandwiches.  Spread soft goat cheese on french bread.  Spread Gertie's over cheese.  You CAN eat it just like that- or, you can add prosciutto, ham, or other meats, sliced tomatoes, lettuce- whatever you like.  Another way to use Gertie's is to stuff it in to mushroom caps, top with cheese, and broil- wonderful!
