Keep Your Pies & Your Politics Separate, Thank You.

Back in the office. Grrrr......

The lake was relaxing and wonderful and funny and intoxicating and everything else that should be rolled into a long weekend with friends :) We played Cranium for two hours on our first night there, and didn't get through more than a 1/4 of the board. We were having too much fun! There is a video, but Daisy has pretty much forbidden us from showing it.

The Voice of Reason and her fiancé bought a new boat. Our house was right on the water & had a boat dock, so they came over and picked us up. We rode around for a bit, and then went to a shack of sorts on the water for lunch. It was lovely :) Later our friend TWW came over on his jet ski. Daisy and I took the jet ski out, and proceeded to flip it. The jet ski landed on my leg/foot. This is pretty much par for the course with me. I get injured on a regular basis. I hobbled around in an ACE bandage for the rest of the weekend, but never fear...I didn't let it get me down :)

Cocktails were the theme of our July 4th weekend. We had two types of lemonade concoctions, and something called a lemon drop, which i must have wrong because it has no lemon in it...only banana? I know two of the recipes by heart b/c I was the mix master for the weekend. Well, Jacob helped a bit...but you know...

Daisy made one of the lemonade drinks, so I can't share that with you because I can't remember it :( Here are the others...just in case you are looking for refreshing yumminess for the summer time:

Lemon Drop (we shall call it this, whether it's called this or not)
(makes one cocktail)
fill cup with ice
1-1/2 cap fulls of 99 bananas
1/2 cap full of 151
top off with cranberry juice

Blueberry Lemonade
(makes 1 pitcher)
1 bottle of chardonnay
3 cups of sprite
1/2 cup of hennessy
12oz of frozen pink lemonade concentrate
1 cup of frozen blueberries

I think that about sums up our weekend! Well, someone special did buy me red, white & blue cupcakes :)

I also have a new favorite song:

Now I guess it's back to the grind.....

Girls...it is seriously SOOOOOO good. When I saw the Hennessey I thought "blech", but it's the most amazing concoction ever. AND..you can sip on it all day and never feel too terribly tipsy :)

Yum..yumm..and yummm.. I have to make those drinks! Hopefully with neighbor. :)
I love what you said - finding that sometimes moving fast with the right one isn't so wrong at all!
Thanks for the great recipes. :)
