Blood Orange Granita

Blood Orange Granita //

I spent last night making a teepee for Amelia, which took me a surprisingly short amount of time. The tough part was actually convincing her that this is the place you sleep, see!  I did everything; place treats inside, transfer all of her toys to the back of the teepee, get in it myself, hoping she’d maybe get jealous and join me. Nothing. It’s like she hates me. Or hates it, which makes me sad because I bought a grommet-maker for this thing! When am I going to need a grommet-maker again?

As I sat there trying to figure out ways to communicate to her that this your home/stop laying on the couch and spreading all your hairs all over my stuff, I grabbed a small bowl of this granita-situation out of the freezer. It’s delicious, refreshing and the easiest thing in the world to prepare. I sat in the teepee, eating this thing and what do you know, the little beast was now super interested in the teepee/me/the granita. Now, all I have to do is figure out a way to have blood orange granitas in there 24-7.

For the full recipe and more pictures, head over to PBS!

I’ve always associated granita with summertime but you totally made it look appropriate for winter months, as well, thanks to those juicy and super succulent blood oranges!

xo, Elisa

I’ve never had/made a granita, but this looks delish!

My own corgi is mostly uninterested in me except for when I’m eating, too. I’d love to see a pic of the teepee! We recently upgraded to a king-size bed and had to buy an ottoman for our corg to get up there. Its been a challenge to stop him from leaping off like a flying squirrel though.

Ooo! I actually took my bed off the frame when I got her because I was afraid of her jumping off and hurting her puppy legs (their bones are still developing). I might have to go back and just get her a stool. Haha.

Where are the photos of Amelia in her teepee?!?!


Nina January 21, 2014 at 7:20 am

Yes! This is a very good question.

HAHA! They’re coming they’re coming. I have to put some finishing touches on the teepee. And plus, last night it was too dark to take a photo. But I think it looks pretty kewt.

Dogs never understand what’s good for them. Who is too good for a teepee?!
