3 Tips from LeeMo Designs, August 2020 Edition

This month, I want to share my FAUXgroni recipe with you, something I do to organize my week, and share a little about what’s been occupying my design mind as of late.

FAUXgroni (aka Negroni)
1 oz Pathfinder
1 oz Gin (Free Spirits)
1/2 oz Vibrante (Martini & Rossi)
1/2 oz Aperitif Syrup (Giffard)

Pour over ice, stir briefly to combine, ENJOY!

This has been my go-to drink since I discovered it last fall. It's the only thing I'm always craving - which says something because I like to try something different every day. You could also sub Lyre's Italian Orange instead of the Martini & Rossi and Giffard. It's not too sweet, not too tart, not too bitter. It really is the perfect mocktail!

Start your week by taking some time to sit and loosely plan out your meals. I say loosely because things to come up, so make sure you do a few freezer or very low labor meals that can be moved around if things come up. Doing this weekly planning has made a massive difference in our grocery bill, and general day-to-day productivity. Knowing what you'll be cooking the upcoming week helps with the budget, time management, and end-of-day brain exhaustion. I even keep all my recipes digitized in Google Drive so that if my husband happens to be home first, he can start prep by referencing the recipe listed on the meal planning board.

Sometimes I like to practice my photography by shooting things for other people. Mostly I just like to work on my own skills and then share the images with people (in this case businesses) if they choose to use the images as well. I've worked with Holm Made Toffee before, and everything that I've eaten from them is absolutely top-notch. I highly recommend giving it a try! My personal favorite is the Sweet & Savory Whole Roasted Hazelnuts.
