favorite summer supper and sangria!

This summer we've grilled quite a few times and this has been one of our favorites!
Loaded portabello's!
soaked in red wine or red wine vinegar and garlic, pepper and salt
Topped with roasted red peppers, spinach, onions, and feta
Served on a bun or plain (preferably with a side of asparagus!!!)

With homemade Sangria!
I had my first taste of Sangria at Abby's wedding this summer - and then decided to try to make it myself!
There are lots of recipes to follow and I think its pretty impossible to screw it up...but it goes something like this:
Red wine
Fruit flavored liquor (we used apple flavored)
Cranberry juice
7 Up/Sprite
Pineapple/orange juice
Maraschino cherries (and the juice)
Sliced apples
Sliced lemons (squeezed)
Sliced limes (squeezed)
Sliced oranges (squeezed)

Serve in a cute vintage glass and enjoy!


  1. Sangria is the only kind of alcohol I've drank that I actually drank an entire glass of! Well, I take that back, there are 2 alcoholic drinks I will drink but I cannot remember the name of the other. Both have been made for me by a friend or family member.

  2. Delish! :)The mushrooms look AMAZING!
