I love Gingers.

Found these lovelies today at a thrift store.  I have a few friends that will be sooo jealous.  You see, we are fans of a little known drink called the Moscow Mule.  Proper Libation Etiquette reflects that they shall be served in a copper mug.  Trust me, it is not the same without.    Here is the recipe as made famous (at least in KC) by Harry's Country Club.

  • 1 ounce vodka

  • 1 tsp. sugar syrup

  • Fresh lime juice

  • 1/2 cup ginger beer

  • 1 sprig fresh mint

  • 1 slice of lime

  • I found them for a delicious 69 cents each.  I just did an ebay search for them....they range from $15-20 for 2.  Score.  

    Lunch Lady.

    This is an old lunch lady stool...used to sit on while ringing up children's meals.  You should've seen her when I found her.  Tired, grey, aged from life, but ready for a change.  Red Lipstick-- or spray paint -- is just the make over she needed.    She's ready for another 40 years.

    Milk Glass 2.0

    Found a new use for my collection that I used as centerpieces on the big day.  I planted Basil, Chive, Rosemary and Sage.  I am doing much more cooking lately...and not just Mac n Cheese.  Although maybe I should try Rosemary Infused Pasta de Frommage.
