First off, sorry for only posting one recipe last week and skipping Linkin’ Weekend yet again. Mike was out of town for a few nights and I felt like I just wanted to pass out once Andy was asleep. Let me just tell you, giving a bath to a squirmy worm five moth old solo is no easy feat. Fear not! I am back now! [Read more…]
A little bit ago, pre-computer crash of 2013, Stephie and I had another cooking date. We figured, it went so swimmingly the last time, why not do it again? This time, instead of testing out some recipes from our favorite cookbooks, we put our heads together and came up with a recipe all our own… well mostly.
When deciding via text message what to cook, Stephie asked me to teach her about creeps. Of course, she meant “crepes.” Thank you, autocorrect. Given our combined dating pasts, I would say we both know a fair amount about creeps, but those are different stories for a different time
Some weeks are easy to get through. Some weeks breeze by in the blink of an eye. Did that sound like the week you had?
Some weeks are hard to get through. Some weeks inch by at a snail’s pace. Some weeks, every morning feels like the snooze is never really as long as it is supposed to be. Did that sound about right?
Mike and I have been having a countdown to Friday since Sunday night! This week was especially hard for us because we were off for two weeks and this was our first week back to the day to day routine. I found myself even too tired for a glass of wine at the end of the day. I usually like to read before I go to bed and use that time to unwind. However, this week, I didn’t even get through one chapter. I swear, I read one page and then drifted off.
Today, five o’clock cannot come soon enough. If you share my sentiments, I have an adult treat for you.
I have to say, one of my top five favorite go-to cocktails is a Moscow Mule. Lately, I have been in a bit of a whiskey and bourbon mood so I switched things up a bit. Ginger beer and lime are like a wonderful blank canvas that goes well with so many things. If you like the traditional cocktail, you will also love this.
So, take a deep breath, put on some comfy clothes, break into the weekend snacks, and pour yourself a cocktail. You deserve it!
