It’s the WEEKEND!!!!! Finally and thank goodness! It has been a very, very long week with court date, white knuckle driving, and illness. I don’t know about anyone else, but I’m quite ready for winter to be over!
This week unfortunately, wasn’t filled with any exciting new recipes. I didn’t get any blogging or scrapbooking done. Yet, on the bright side, I made strides toward a healthier lifestyle. For two weeks in a row, I’ve only had one cup of coffee per day. Which for me is huge, since I think coffee should be a food group. Seriously, it should. Now I have to focus back on exercise!! Once I can breathe again, I’m on it! Only 1 cup of coffee and exercise? I will be ready for a bikini by May.
In other news, the Iditarod starts today. Not too many people care about the race, (everyone in my house included), but I used to live in Alaska, so for me it’s almost up there with the Super Bowl. Autumn and I will be having a Mushing party. Any excuse to party! 🙂 We will try to keep it healthy. I have a feeling after this week though, some adult hot cocoa for mommy just might be involved.
In completely unrelated news, cocktails and Pinterest. I love Pinterest. I pin lots of cocktails. And hot men. mmmmmmmm. Sorry, back to cocktails. Now, I’m a not too much of a girly girl. I don’t have time. But my drinks? Completely girl. The more fru-fru the better. Keep in mind, I’m not a bartender. I leave that to the professionals. But at $10 a drink, I thought I would start experimenting at home. It’s got to be cheaper! First Pinterest cocktail experiment? Success! The ol’ man thought it tasted like gasoline. But he drinks beer. Not cocktails. I say, experiment, make it to your liking and enjoy!
- 1 oz Heavy Cream
- 1 oz Whipped Vodka
- 1 oz Amaretto
- 1 oz Godiva Chocolate Liquor
- Frosting, sprinkles and chocolate syrup
Dab frosting around the rim of a martini glass. Roll in sprinkles or colored sugar. Line martini glass with Chocolate syrup, to your liking. Yummm. In a shaker with ice, add cream, vodka, amaretto, and chocolate liquor. Shake, shake, shake. Shake, shake, shake. Shake your booty. I mean, your shaker. Pour into pretty glass and drink. Responsibly. But drink ‘er up.
For the record, I’ve never been in a bikini and if none of this post makes any sense, it’s not my fault. I blame the Dayquil.
