Like Mojitos? Here's My Easy Peasy Mojito Slushy 6/27/20

Easy Peasy Mojito Slushy!
     With everything going on... there are days that I think going back to "normal" is a moot point.  I mean, normal is just a setting on our dishwasher.  I have hope, tomorrow, whenever it comes, will  be brighter for all of us.  Till then, I'm just callin' this time, a glitch.  

     So, time to enjoy the glitch.  Look around, count your blessings, hug the loved ones that you've been spending so much time with...and hope everyone has managed to keep their sense of humor in tact. 

So, onward and forward, to a new world... 

Easy Peasy Mojito Slushy:

You will need-
128 oz plastic container -freezer compatible 
12 limeade concentrate (whatevah brand) 
Mint~ I use around 2-3 dozen leaves- half of .75 oz package
2 cups of White Rum

In the container, prepare the limeade as it states, mixing in 4 1/3 cans of water.  Next, add mint, and muddle a bit -not too much.  Next add rum!  Then mix 'er up, put lid on container and carefully place in freezer.  Give it a day to slush up, then scoop out as wanted/needed.  You could top it off with Club Soda, if you like, but I did not.  I thought it was perfect the way it was. 


If you like it, feel free to give a dollar or two... like a tip, up there, on the right..

Another yummy easy peasy cocktail for summer->

Mosquitoes; What's The Point?

     I love summer.  However, one of the major pitfalls for me is the wretched mosquitoes.    In the spring when mosquitoes first start to appear, I could swear I can hear them sing and dance, the moment I step outside.  I currently have 15 bites.
     It was one of the lovely things about living in SoCal; very little humidity= no mosquitoes.  In the 8 years that we lived there, I got 1 bite!  And I am certain that little sucker traveled oodles of miles just to find me.  Maybe I should feel flattered.

     A friend sent me this photo a week or so ago.  Think it's just a meme. 

That's okay, as I wrote a few years ago, in TODAY's TOYS: KIDS' DREAM; PARENTS' NIGHTMARE,  there are enough dolls in this house. 

For more funny memes, check this out MIGHTY SURVIVAL APRIL 20, 2020.

     So, when I first saw the Barbie doll, I thought, I don't need anymore dolls... but wouldn't mind finding that sweatshirt.

     Truth be told, I have enough sweatshirts too, but in case you're interested, there are several sites selling t-shirts and sweatshirts, with that idea in mind. 

      I'll try to do more posts in the future, but in the time being, have a great weekend, and as ever, go forth with gratitude and grace!

     Enjoy, wine o'clock, beer o'clock, pot o'clock... too... Just ROCK AROUND THE CLOCK!

Spring Time+Mushrooms=Mushroom Risotto!

 So, what did the girl mushroom say to the boy mushroom, after their first date?

You're a fun-guy! 

Get it? Hee hee...

     I have loved mushrooms ever since I can remember.  When I was a kid, my mom sautéed mushrooms in butter with garlic as a side dish.  What's not good in butter and garlic?  Hmm...
