A quick, inexpensive, tasty way to stay hydrated. Use any juice, add / subtract sugar depending on your taste. Shake well prior to drinking. I reuse the cleaned gatorade bottles to easily carry this with me. I also combine different juices ( strawberry / pineapple, orange / cherry etc )
A simple recipe for plain ol' Homemade Horseradish. I make a lot at once and I put mine in the fridge for 3-4 days then transfer all but one to the freezer. Note: Prep Time and Servings depends on the amount of Horseradish you have and want to make. I also recommend you make this outdoors or in a well ventilated area.
