I had decided to make a detox drink that included mint leaves so when I went to the grocery store to find the mint leaved I was very disappointed. Every bunch of mint leaves were wilted beyond repair! I thought to myself how are these still up here being sold. I bought a bunch, anyways and took it home along with my cucumber and grapefruit.
I washed the bunch of mint leaves, cucumber and cut half of the grapefruit and put all the left overs in one zip lock bag (don't even ask me why I didn't just throw away the rest of the wilted mint leaves).
Two days later I decide to make another batch, again hopefully using the most likely even more wilted mint leaves. I pulled the bag out and reached in for the mint. I felt something thicker that expected. To my surprise... A full thick bunch of fresh mint leaves!
I really wish I would have taken a picture of the wilted bunch that looked like had zero life left in them.
I don't know what caused it to come back to life? Could've been the moisture from washing them and sticking them in the zip lock bag? Could have been the power of the cucumber or the grapefruit that was with it? Who knows!
So don't get discouraged when you see wilted mint at the store! You can save it.
Here is what I did to save mine
*everything was freshly washed*
Stick leftover mint, cucumber & grapefruit in a ziplock bag and I guess let it do it's thing!

This week has flown by! I guess that's because I have been busy getting ready for this weekend.
The kids and I are invited to an event Featuring Soleil Moon Frye.
My sister and her kids are coming along to join in on the fun and I can't wait! We just received our shipment of head to toe C9 by Target clothing and they are all very bright fun colors. I guess every one going will be dressed in C9 clothing. It's going to be one big blob of colorful people looking like they're ready to work out..lol
I'm even more excited that this event will have tons of fun things to do for the kids.
I will take tons of pictures and post Sunday morning.
