It's cool, windy and rainy outside so what better time to conduct a few science experiments........with alcohol, of course.
My vodka of choice, Smirnoff. My additives, Red Hots and blueberries........but not together. I am hoping to make an Atomic Fireball Martini with the Red Hots infused vodka........I loved Atomic Fireballs as a kid. Who am I kidding, I still love them!
The blueberry just sounded refreshing and we had them on hand. Maybe mixed with some lemonade or sweet and sour mix would make a nice summer cocktail.
All set and ready to sit for a few days. Can't wait!
Today seemed to be international food day at our house. This is Vietnamese Bun with chicken and crabmeat spring rolls. We had a Mexican frittata for breakfast and a muffuletta for lunch (ok, I guess a muffuletta isn't really international).
I thought I'd throw out a few pictures of Louie for his favorite gal, Ruby, to swoon over. Will you be his Valentine?
I'm making The Husband a new throw quilt for his recliner. His current one was made in 1995 and has seen MUCH better days. Here is a little preview of one of the quilt blocks......
It's a pattern called 'Boxers or ???'. I've made them for almost all of my brothers and they are fun to make. It's fun to find novelty fabrics that showcase their interests and such. I always put in a Christmas pair and patriotic pair. The Husband wears mostly Hawaiian style shirts and must have 50 of them. I'm sure he would love these beauties.
I've finished all the blocks and starting to put the rows together. His birthday is next month so I should have plenty of time to quilt it.

The Husband really spoils me. Check out the dinner he made for my birthday last night.
First course - Shrimp Scampi
Second course - Mixed green salad with pear, strawberry and candied pecans.
Main course - Filet with blue cheese sauce, Maine lobster tail with drawn butter, garlic 'smashed' potatoes and creamed spinach. Washed down with a fine Argentian Malbec. It was everything I asked for and delicious to boot!
