Strawberry Limeade-Tini

In certain aspects of my life, I am extremely organized.  In other areas, not so much. Other than one semester in during my junior or senior year of high school, I have been a PC user. In April of this year I made the switch and became a Mac user.  For those that have made that switch know that there is a steep learning curve, particularly after 22 years of using a PC.  Sure, I could navigate the basics, but learning how to retrieve and store things was a bit different than I was used to.

My PC is organized within an inch of its life.  Folder and folders and then more folders, all labeled.  But when I got the Mac, I didn’t know how anything went in, where it went, and how to get it back out.  Confession, I still can’t get a document or picture onto a flash drive from The Green Bean (the name of my laptop.) If you can tell me, leave a comment! (And don’t tell me to go to YouTube, I have watched the videos and it still doesn’t work.)I have since learned how to create folders and organize my pictures and documents.  I figured it out a few weeks ago and from that moment on, I organized every new thing that went in.  Then last night, I spent the time and cleaned up all the stuff I had already downloaded to The Green Bean.  During that cleaning, I found not one, but two recipes I made and never posted.  This drink and (and this one is really shameful, sorry Mom2) one of Mom2’s excellent meatloaves that she made while I was in California (IN MAY.) Sigh!

So, here, almost two months after it was originally made, Strawberry Lime-Tini. It tastes like a strawberry limeade who grew up and turned 21. Delicious.
