BLACK VODKA - I posted about Black Vodka last week and though there were some drinks on websites using the stuff, none really had a specific Halloween bent. Trust Martha Stewart to come through for us. She has recipes for Ghosts in the Graveyard, Screwed Up Screwdriver and Berry Scary Martini all using a black vodka of your choice. You can find her recipes here.
FOR A COLD - Since The Men Behind The Wheel gave me this nasty cold, I've been totally into comfort food this week. Lots of macaroni and cheese. Currently I'm living off of Stouffers frozen mac and cheese. Doesn't take a lot of effort to zap one in the microwave for lunch or dinner. But since it's National Pasta Day, I figure my waistline shouldn't complain too much about all the carbs. I keep saying I'm going to get caught up with recipes and posting but alas, this cold really is kicking my butt. I'm hoping it's the first and last cold of the season. Mr. L got his flu shot yesterday (at Safeway and they gave him a coupon for 10% off his next grocery trip), I hope to get mine next week. Have you had yours yet?
FISH STICKS AND EYE CANDY - I was all about fish sticks when I was a kid which is interesting since up until recently I didn't really eat fish. But fish sticks? Not much fish flavor when you slather them with a pound of butter and some lemon juice as I did. But that was when I was a kid and it's been years since I've partaken in a box of frozen fish sticks. But...I admit...Becks is something to look at...as long as he doesn't talk (how can that voice come from that body???). Becks is currently promoting a healthier line of fish sticks in England. I don't know about the rest of you, but if David was to come by my place and offer to feed me these fish sticks, I'd probably give them a try :)
