Rosemary Peach Frozen Yogurt ~ Holding On or Letting Go

Rosemary Peach Frozen Yogurt

what i find so fascinating as i get older is my ability to let things go now. all the things that i wanted when i was in my, ahem, twenties: marriage, career, annual overseas trips, retired by 45 blah blah blah. all that? it just added shit to my life. in retrospect, my twenties were pretty miserable -- stressful, always comparing myself to everyone else's best, and where did it get me? no flipping where. yes, i want to be successful at my job; sure, i'd like to travel internationally again; and surprisingly, yes, i would like to be in a committed & loving relationship again eventually. but i am not barreling head first into these goals, hell-bent on achieving them just for the sake of attaining them, because i know i wouldn't enjoy the journey, why in the world i would be happy with the end destination?

i'm letting it go. not because i don't want to go for them. not because i'm lazy. not because i don't think i can accomplish them. but because i am comfortably ensconced in my forever thirties and Loving It. listen. i always say, don't sweat the petty stuff, pet the sweaty stuff.

so the end of summer has arrived, autumn fast approaching. (actually, not really, it hit 91F this week!) typically, i mourn the loss of the warm weather & i go into hibernation. this year, i vow to not hold on so hard to September, and embrace the cooler temps... and remember to put on a damn jacket.

this will more than likely be the last of my ice cream/frozen treats until next summer. don't cry, i'm holding onto the ice cream maker like it's my J.O.B. but i'm letting go of the resentment.

Rosemary Peach Frozen Yogurt

dude. no exact measurements.

half container of plain yogurt
rosemary leaves, chopped up, i'd say they were about 2 TBLs worth
2 ripe peaches, chopped up. i kept the skins on cus i was LAZY about peeling
splash of milk to thin out the mixture
sprinkle of organic sugar

mix all in a bowl and leave overnight in fridge. them make in ice cream maker, according to maker's manual.

personally, i loved the flavors whereas nuria did not enjoy it. the rosemary provided too savory of a taste for her. i liked the tang of the yogurt.

PS. if you'll notice on the right side, i finally created a Facebook Fan Page. be a doll & become a fan, won'tcha? i'll probably be hosting a giveaway for just my FB fans soon...

have a loverly weekend.

  1. I have yet to learn to let things go. Maybe in my 40's?

    Peach frozen yogurt is a nice way to welcome Fall...I'd like if it actually got here.

  2. That looks delicious.

    And I totally agree with you. I feel like every time I plan my life out, life comes, smacks me in the face and gives me something different.

  3. Actually, I'm the opposite. I really enjoyed my twenties. Felt like I accomplished more, did more. I don't regret the traveling or the hard work or anything that I in my twenties.

    I just seem to be drifting through my 30s and not enjoying them at all.

    @christy, it's all about rolling with the punches/smacks... it's not what you do, it's how you do it: with class & spunk.

    @claire, thank you!

    @Chi WC, oh! maybe you're just tired from your 20s honey? cus i feel like i was asleep mostly and now i'm all wide awake & ready to kick some ass. it's all about perspective...
