Strawberry party, regardless of age

I like to invite people to my house and cook them from time to time. Not many because I don't have much space. We were trying all sorts of new things, talking and laughing. A lot. By all and sundry.

This year, at the spring invitation, I decided not to make a random menu, but to choose an element that would link everything. And what else but strawberries? I choose strawberry-colored lipstick, if I have clothes with tapered prints, I consider myself a fairy and I would very much like to throw strawberry-shaped pillows on the sofa. So the choice is somehow obvious.

But what to give, what to give? So I started browsing gastropedia.ro in search of inspiration. And I found. It will be a sweet party, no doubt, and a little pink, because if not now, when?

We will serve sweets and drinks with, of course, STRAWBERRIES

Fruit salad with champagne.

It is not made on the spot, because it must be kept cold for at least 2 hours before being served. The champagne is not put as such, but is boiled for a few minutes in a bowl with a little sugar. Cut the fruit, pour over the sapmania and it's ready. There is not much to do, but the effect is guaranteed. The recipe here.

Perfect with amaretto biscuits and strawberries

Perfect with amaretto biscuits and strawberries.

I'm in love with parfait, because even though it's the cake, you can make it with healthy ingredients. So you eat it without regret, even if it melts in your mouth and you don't really care how much you ate. This parfait is made with mascarpone cream, is sweetened with honey and has a fresh, mint scent. Of course, I'll put strawberries in it too. The recipe here.

Mint recipes for skin care

1. Steam bath for dilated pores

To do this, put in a pot of boiling water parsley leaves, thyme, lemon balm and mint in equal amounts. Hold your face over this herbal steam bath for 5 minutes and the skin texture will look very fresh.

2. Mint cleanser

It is enough to finely chop a dozen mint leaves and let them infuse overnight in the refrigerator in 250 ml of milk. The next morning, filter the infusion with milk to finish preparing this natural cleanser that will be kept cold.

It does not contain oil, so it will be harder to remove waterproof makeup. However, it will suit those who wear light makeup and all skin types (combination skin, dry skin, etc.), even sensitive and delicate skin. All you have to do is apply it to your face with a cotton pad. Finish with the application of the mint lotion, described below, followed by the moisturizer.

3. Scented mint-based lotion

The lotion refreshes the skin and perfects both the make-up and the make-up removal. In short, it is used in the morning as a skin refresher and as a night tonic, both pleasing to all skin types, especially the most capricious (excess sebum, acne pimples, etc.).

Moreover, it is good for skin that suffers from sunburn and can be sprayed on the armpits to cool them. It is also an excellent product for heavy and tired feet, which loves the calming cooling effect.

Similar to the essential oil, but without contraindications, this mint floral water refreshes both literally and figuratively. Mint hydrosol has refreshing properties and this makes it particularly suitable for cooling the skin when it is hot, especially after sun exposure.
