Pizza Friday – Sangria tonight!

Another Friday come and gone.  I begin my week trying to think of what the family would enjoy for our Friday get together.  I always ask everyone what they would enjoy for their Pizza Friday.  We can always guarantee a cheese pizza and a sausage pizza.  I like to make other things that we all enjoy. Last Friday I had a request from one of the guys that come with Martin, his name is Eric V.  He said he really enjoyed the Purple Pig pizza.  That was the beginning of our next Pizza Friday. Then this week while cruising Pinterest I found a Sangria.  I have never made a Sangria or even desired one. I mentioned the ingredients to Rachel and that started another addition to our menu.  After I told her about the Sangria she suggested a Fruit Pizza.  

So, we have Purple Pig Pizza, Sangria and Fruit Pizza.  Another addition was chicken tenders.

Everyone really enjoyed our menu tonight.  Another night where there is very little leftovers.  Here is our Simple and Delicious Sangria recipe:

Strawberry Apple Basil Sangria 

(adapted from a Recipe at


8 oz thinly sliced strawberries
1 apple, diced
1/2 ounce Basil leaves
1 bottle of Chardonnay
2 cups Sparkling White Grape juice
2 Tablespoons sugar


1.  Layer thinly sliced strawberries and diced apple.   Top with 2 Tablespoons sugar.  Top with whole basil leaves.  Let set for 10 minutes.

2.  Add bottle of Chardonnay and sparkling white grape juice.  Let rest of 30 minutes.

3.   Then ENJOY!!  This was really refreshing and delicious!!

We got into taking pics but not of us only of the food.  Maybe next week we can enjoy some photos of us having a great time.

Enjoy this simple and delicious and refreshing drink.  This is great for spring, summer, winter or fall.  Use whatever fruits are in season and enjoy!  

Until next week.  Salute and Ciao!!
