{new obsession}

last night, the lovely lauren preece and i met up at a cute little place i've never been to called 6 friends cafe. it's over by woodland park and they have sandwiches, drinks, and gelato.

i like to think i'm an adventurous eater, so when i spied the "sweet basil gelato", i asked for a sample.  HELLO!  it was amazing!  it had the summery taste of basil, but had just enough sugar that it was refreshingly sweet.

i found a recipe that seems easy enough (i should add to not be fooled by the gelato... it was totally a sorbet, but still delish).
1 cup sugar, 1 cup water, 3/4 cup of lime juice and 20 basil leaves minced.

you just boil the sugar and water to make a syrup, add the lime and basil to a blender, put that in the freezer, take it out to reblend, and then stick it back in the freezer.  does that not sound like summer???

yep, it's official, my new obsession is all things basil

i will be attempting to make this.  when i do, i'll report back!

as a side note, there are 2 weeks until relay for life!  if you want to come visit at LCA or want to learn more about our team OR want to donate :), you should check out my page
