Maybe this will help...

Sinus Clearer

Ingredients

1 part Vodka, pepper
1 pinch Pepper, black
1 part Tabasco Sauce

Mix vodka and Tabasco in a shot glass. Sprinkle pepper on top.


Whoa Mama - if that didn't help, I don't know what would. I think it would "burn" going in AND coming out! LOL

To friendship! and Spring Break!!

Spring Break

Ingredients

2 oz. Rum, lemon (Bacardi Limon)
1/2 oz. Tequila, gold (Jose Cuervo Especial)
1 oz. Vodka, lime
Fill with Iced Tea

Measure and add the alcoholic ingredients into highball glass with ice. Fill with iced tea.


We're kid-less until after Easter...spring break is with mommie dearest this year so we probably won't hear from the kids until the next time we see them. I made chicken & dumplings (pastry) for dinner and brownies for dessert. It's rainy and gloomy today so we've been hanging around inside all day. I'm making Easter cards now but took a break to post today's drink recipe. Jean - when you feel better you can take back the reins.

Our annual meeting and HOA elections are tomorrow. I've decided to run again and will probably get on but at least I know it's only until we sell the condo and move out of here. The only people running were the existing board members plus one other guy. And, we'll still have an open spot. So, people must not be too unhappy as we have no opposition. Maybe we did do well afterall.

Enjoy the rest of the weekend, my friends.

I spent the afternoon judging a cupcake competition - a fundraiser for a local charity that supports abused kids in foster care and group homes. I was one of five "celebrity" judges and definitely the least celebrity and the least qualified! It was fun, though. We tasted 20 cupcakes - and I hit my sugar overload about half way through! 10 were from professional bakers and the rest were amateurs. We had first, second and third place in each category. The professionals were all pretty good, but the amateurs had a very wide range of quality. Fortunately there was only one I wanted to spit out!
Anyway, it was a fun afternoon. Now I am eating salad with chicken for dinner to try counter all the cupcake sugar. I still need to finish the last of my Easter cards, too, and then start on birthday thank yous. I never seem to have enough cards in my stash these days!
Enjoy Spring Break, everyone. For me I hope it means a little lighter week at work. We'll see.

We now have a celebrity judge to add to our growing list of dignitaries... we now have 2 queens, one president and a judge. Sounds like fun Michelle although I don't think I could eat the ametuer cupcakes - I have a thing about eating stuff other people make especially when i don't know them (or where they cooked it). When we had bake sales in elementary school, I alwasys bought what I brought (even though we more than likely already had some at home) because I knew how my mom made it and her kitchen was clean! Guess my OCD started young.

Might have a couple of these as I get ready for HOA elections tonight. Some of our members are missing so we won't elect officers for another week or so [after elections] so for the time being, I am, and will remain...

El Presidente

Ingredients

1 1/2 oz. Rum, light
1 dash Grenadine
1/2 oz. Lime Juice
1 dash Pineapple Juice

Shake everything with ice in a cocktail shaker. Strain into a cocktail glass and serve.

good luck tonight, Jacq!
I had to get up super early this morning to pick up a friend from the train station. I know I will be glad that she owes me one sometime in the future, but right now I am hating having gotten up at 4:30 a.m. Hoping to sneak out a bit early, but have to run to the grocery after work for critical things like cream for my coffee!

As for the amateur bakers, I will say that none of seem to have given me food poisoning, so that is good. But it may be awhile before I want another cupcake. (which might also be a good thing, come to think of it!)

Where've you been hiding lady?

Elections went as planned...8 people were running to fill 9 seats. Needless to say we all made it back on the HOA board plus we got one new guy. He should work out fine and we're all on the same page now and things are running very smoothly.

Joe & I are going to Calabash this weekend for Easter with mom & dad. Seems more like Thanksgiving than Easter...it hasn't gotten out of the 50s for weeks! I'm still wearing my winter coat for pete's sake. Had my heater on in my office this morning. I'm chilled to the core and can't warm up. Hope I'm not getting sickie.

I'm a little bummed...my new year goal of completing at least 4 scrapbook pages each month is not going so well...haven't done even one. Organized my paper and photos but haven't completed a page. I suck.

One more work day then helloooo three-day weekend. Wish we have three day weekends every week. Sigh

Yes, I'm all for 3 day weekends as well.

Well, I'm back from Jean's. She wasn't feeling very well from the antibiotic she was taking when I left, but is starting to feel better now. I had a great time, as usual, and got about 15 cards made. We went to the Bayport Inn for fish and chips on Monday and had dinner from Carrabas on Tuesday. Yum! Jean and her DH gave me Tombow markers for my birthday and Jean found a very unique way to wrap them. See attached photo.

So cute...that Jean is a whiz...I'm assuming she did that with her silhouette. Meanwhile, haven't graduated from basic shapes : ( glad you had a nice visit even though Jean wasn't feeling well...maybe she needs to make one of those pink penicillin drinks.

Hope everyone has a nice weekend.

OK, that is just awesome! Jean is so clever and talented. Glad you had a good time together, even is she wasn't up to 100 percent.

Hope you all have a wonderful Easter weekend. I don't get a three-day, but I am taking next Tuesday off to hang out with friends who are in So Cal for spring break. It's always fun to join people on their vacations. I don't have any plans for Easter right now, but I suspect some will materialize. They usually do!

The highlight of my day was a visit to one of the schools with agriculture centers where they have baby goats and sheep right now. They are so cute! Going to another school next week where they are expecting piglets.

Not completely on the silhouette, Jacq. Candle flames, box top covers, and scallop trim only. The fun part for me was watching her carefully unwrap every one of those 35 candles and put them back together again. Kept her busy a good while. Bwahhaaahaaaahaaa.

Happy Easter, Good Friends.

Did the goats and sheep shimmy up to you real close, Michelle. They always seem to want to be right next to you. Sounds like the perfect Easter field trip. Did you see a lambit?

ha! no lambits at the farm. The goats were pretty friendly, the sheep were just noisy! On my last visit, the goats kept trying to chew on my clothes and purse. This time they were penned in, so my clothes were safe!

Yes, I've had that same experience with goats! They want to chew on everything. You'd think they never feed them.

Great new drinks, Jean! I'm thinking I might have to make something delicious tonight while I watch the season premier of Mad Men. Anyone else a fan of that show?

It's a gloomy day of overcast skies today after a gorgeous day yesterday. I have a long to-do list, including making some cards and finishing taxes - ugh. And once again, I'm wishing the weekends were longer and the work weeks shorter. Ok, best get busy! Have a good one, all.

It's too bad I'm not a vodka drinker. Some of these drink recipes sound delicious.
Spent the afternoon on the porch swing watching the birds at my feeders. We have cardinals, indigo buntings, and goldfinches right now. So colorful! Oh we also have a beautiful red-bellied woodpecker who comes to eat at the feeders.

Hey peeps! Spring has finally sprung. Our 66th annual azalea festival starts this week. I'm going to the azalea luncheon at the country club with my friend, Kelly tomorrow. I got a new pretty flowery skirt to wear.

Have a showing (of our condo) this weekend and an open house on the 27th. Wish us luck!!

I was waiting for a segue (sp?):

Azalea cocktails

You'll need:
1 part lime or lemon juice
1 part canned pineapple juice
3 parts gin
Grenadine to color pink
Mix in cocktail shaker with ice and shake.
