It's that time of year here in California, orange time. I feel kinda bratty talking about it with the huge threat of world's scariest sounding blizzard is rapidly approaching the east coast. I hope you're all safely tucked in your beds and keeping warm. Maybe when the snow thaws you can get some oranges? I don't know. Either way, I hope you're safe and staying healthy and this all turns out to be just another average snow storm.
Natural disasters aside, here in California the oranges are practically falling off the trees. Still, too soon? I thought so, but I have to write my blog post. It'll be 76° here tomorrow. I officially have California guilt. It's a new thing I invented. I feel bad about the temperate climate and perpetually complaining about "winter." You won't hear a peep out of me about the cold again. Until it drops below 60° again and then I just can't help myself. I wouldn't survive a New York blizzard. I'd be wandering the streets with a frost bitten nose searching for produce. #darwinaward I really am scared for you guys though. Be safe.
If you happen to be in a climate where it's safe to go outside and want to make Orange Pellegrino,
here's what you'll need:
- 1 - 32 oz bottle of Pellegrino
- 3-4 oranges - skins washed
I used fresh orange juice, but I'm sure you'd be fine using a bottle of orange juice too.
- Juice 1 1/2 - 2 oranges to get 1 cup of orange juice
- Mix it in a pitcher with San Pellegrino or whichever mineral water you prefer.
- Slice the rest of your oranges and add it in to the mix.
- Serve over ice.
Still thinking of you, New York. Be safe. If you can't see the sun, maybe you can listen to it here.
