And my jo.
Church shopping again this week. I walked in the wrong door and walked right into the choir stalls! Oops.
Came home with a mission to get all that bad quilting pulled from M&M's quilt. I have a re-match with the machine next Wednesday, but I want it done.
Got busy with various projects and forgot to eat lunch. I even put tea water on twice and never made the tea.
Getting ready for dinner, I just had to have a few of those peanuts I claim not to like.
And I had a Millionaire cocktail, one from Dr. Cocktail's book of Vintage and Forgotten Cocktails. This one is really good, and pretty to boot.
1 1/2 oz. Myers rum
1 1/2 oz. fresh lime juice
3/4 oz. Apricot brandy liqueur
3/4 oz. Sloe gin
The sloe gin is what makes it red. A really ice drink!
Carol was over and we started a game of Scrabble. She had to leave before it was done, but she was cleaning my clock!
Glass of white wine too.
I also made rice. Without the rice and the extra shrimp, there really would not have been enough. It wasn't bad, but I'm not rushing out to buy it again.
(The wine picture is bigger than the bread picture, not because wine is better than bread -- which it is -- but because I thought the picture looked like the ceiling in an operating room, or a raw egg with a see-through yolk, or something exotic. Too bad the dirty plate and fork were in the picture!)
Ankle killing me! Desperate for chocolate. Had a square of my dark chocolate bar I keep for days I really need it, and had a handful of dried cranberries with it.
Still wish it had been chocolate ice cream, or mocha chip. Now that would be perfect.
But this wasn't a bad invention.
I'm pretty sure I had a cup of decaf too, let it get cold and never took a picture of it.
