I HAVE A DREAM – 50 YEARS LATER
“Next week, the first black U.S. president, a living symbol of the racial progress civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr. dreamed about, will stand near the spot where King stood 50 years ago and say where he believes the nation should be headed.” – Washington (AP)
HAVE WE FULFILLED DR. KING’S DREAM?
Hello Friends and Happy Friday Eve!
Last week at Pockets Discount Liquors they had a taste testing of Ciroc‘s new flavored Vodka, Amaretto. I had previously purchased a bottle but never opened it, so I was curious as to the taste – ooooo it was nice and smooth! I’ve had the Peach flavored Ciroc but like the Amaretto better, it’s not as sweet which makes for a better mix and it would also be good straight over ice.
I am not a big Vodka drinker and I need some cocktail ideas…so you know I had to check out my “cuzzy’s” Vlog. Here she is making her “Thank You Lawd” Cocktail, which I might try using the Ciroc Vodka…and a few other ingredients!
Do you have any cocktails recipes you want to share?
Linking up with Katherine’s Corner today.
Hello Friends and Happy Fri-Yay!
What happens when it’s Friday night and you don’t feel like cooking, ordering pizza or going out and a bowl of cereal just won’t cut it? In our house when that happens we head straight to the garage and to the freezer. There is where I try to keep microwavable meals and snacks specifically for those occasions and last Friday night it was Lean Pockets Pretzel Bread Sandwiches.
I am not a big proponent of frozen meals & snacks because of the excessive sodium some of them contain but these Lean Pockets brand sandwiches are only 250 calories with 650 mg of sodium which isn’t a lot compared to others that contain well over 1000 mg of sodium.
The Lean Pockets Sandwiches were filled with Spinach and 3 Cheeses, Fontina, Romano and reduced Fat Mozzarella. I zapped one in the microwave for 2 minutes 30 seconds in the crisping sleeve then cut it in half. It didn’t seem like it had a lot of filling and could have had more spinach, but to my surprise it was quite good and hit the spot. The soft pretzel bread encased a flavorful mix of spinach and cheeses that paired well with my glass of Friday night wine!
Speaking of wine, I want to reintroduce my “play cousin” Cook E doe Face. She is a down to earth YouTube Vlogger who will have you in stitches as you watch her create some delicious dishes and “knock you on your butt cocktails”.
Cook E de Face is from Philly and I fell in love with her atty-tud (Philly slang) from the very first video I watched. In today’s world it is so easy to get caught up in the negativity but you know me, I like to keep it light. Cook E doe Face has me laughing out loud and reminds me of my own New York cousins. If it were left up to me she would definitely have a show on the Food or OWN Network!

Have a fantastical day – Smooches!
Hello Friends – do you want to make the 1st Monday of the summer better?
Then do what I do, think of your favorite summer songs, you know the ones that you just have to hear every year no matter how old it is…the ones you only listen to when it’s hot outside or when you’re on vacation?
Okay, now download, stream or pull them up on Pandora, turn up the volume, then sing along loudly in your office or cubicle – sike…don’t get fired…or carted off to Bellevue, just sing quietly and chair dance!
This is the list with link to my six favorite summer songs.
Summer songs and summer wear seem to go hand-in hand, hence my #1 jam, so when it’s hot all day everyday, I prefer a sundress. This is one of my favorites thrifted from GW Boutique.
Infinity Scarf – Target (clearance)
Sandals – Ross
It’s getting HOT out here!
Have a fantabulous day – Smooches!
