Creamsicle Martini

Creamsicle MartiniYesterday, our alarm went off at 4:15 a.m.  We got up, got dressed, packed a lunch, made breakfast, saw that the proper bags were packed with the proper items and drove The Young One to school so he could take a 3-day field trip with the 8th grade to Washington D.C.

We then went into the office – at 5:15 a.m.  By noon, we were both like, “Okay, I’ve had enough of this…let’s go home.”   But first I made Beloved take me out to lunch and then to the grocery store where I picked out a couple of nice steaks for dinner.  Then we went home and watched Milk on DVD (not bad – Sean Penn was certainly very good) and took a nap.

Around 6 or so in the evening, it dawned on us “By golly – we have the entire house to ourselves!!”  So as Beloved played solitaire on his laptop and I fed the fish and petted the dog we cavorted wantonly about the house, I asked Beloved to make me a “fun drink.”  This is what he came up with, and I must say – it was darn tasty.
