1 tablespoon granulated sugar
4 cups fresh lemonade

How to:

1. Preheat the oven to 400F for roasting.
2. Place the peaches (skin side down) in a baking dish and sprinkle the tops with sugar.
3. Roast the peaches for about 25 minutes or until the tops of the peaches are juicy at the skins and can be easily pinched off.
4. Remove the outside of the peach skins and drop the roasted peaches into a blender.
5. Pour in enough lemonade to cover the peaches in the blender and puree the peaches completely, until the liquid is a little foamy and frothy.
6. Pour the mixture into a pitcher and stir in the rest of the lemonade.
7. Let chill, stir and serve with a smile!

New Year’s Resolution- Find Balance in Your Life (Thanks to Yoga Path)

Moon Yoga

Now is the time of year when we go through the (annoying) process of making bold declarations related to our life that we never follow through on- otherwise known as New Year’s resolutions.

2015 is the year to finally break tradition and make good on our promises.

Resolution #1: Find Balance in Our Life

SoSo’s Yoga Path is making this resolution easy to fulfill with their Full Moon Restorative Workshop on January 6 from 7:30-9:30.

From the Yoga Path experts:
“The Full Moon can be seen at the time of reaching the top of the mountain. This is a time when we are able to see both sides of ourselves clearly and any tensions within are revealed at this time. As we are able to see both sides of any issue at this time we are able to work on harmonizing any imbalances. This is an excellent time to meditate with relation to any personal or world issues that may be concerning you.”

This workshop includes props, meditation and aromatherapy as well as the promise of restoring some much needed balance to your life for 2015. Spots are limited, so register today.
