One (1) or two (2) ?

Old Fashioneds, that is. I've had one. I decided my next big treat after work was going to be Old Fashioneds- but, really- one or two???  My traditional after work treat has been a cup of fresh brewed (with tea leaves) tea, but dang, I need alcohol after my job. (My job is doling out Obamacare to the hordes of California) So, OK, I like Old Fashioneds. I have the ingredients. But, one or two. I can still function after one, but after two? Hmmmm, coma time.
And I have sort of researched the interwebs and found that the blogs that feature recipes get a lot of visits. So, to pump up my numbahs, here is my favorite all time recipe:

 TEQUILA CHRISTMAS CAKE RECEIPE
 
Once again this year, I've had requests for my Tequila Christmas Cake recipe so here goes: Please keep in your files as I am beginning to get tired of typing this up every year!

1 cup sugar
... 1 tsp. baking powder
1 cup water
1 tsp. salt
1 cup brown sugar
Lemon juice
4 large eggs
Nuts
1 bottle tequila
2 cups dried fruit

Sample the tequila to check quality.

Take a large bowl; check the tequila again to be sure it is of the highest quality. Repeat. Turn on the electric mixer.

Beat one cup of butter in a large fluffy bowl.

Add 1 teaspoon of sugar. Beat again.

At this point, it is best to make sure the tequila is still OK.

Try another cup just in case. Turn off the mixerer thingy.

Break 2 eegs and add to the bowl and chuck iin the cup of dried fruit.

Pick the fruit up off the floor. Mix on the turner.

If the fried druit getas stuck in the beaterers, just pry it loose with a drewscriver. Sample the tequila to test for tonsisticity. Next, sift 2 cups of salt, or something.

Check the tequila. Now shift the lemon ice strain your nuts.

Add one table. Add a spoon of sugar, or somefink.

Whatever you can find. Greash the oven.

Turn the cake tin 360 s and try not to fall over.

Don't forget to beat off the turner.

Finally, throw the bowl through the window.

Finish the tequila and wipe the counter with the cat.

Cherry Mristmas

One of the few recipes that needs to be passed on!
 
Granted, its not bourbon based, but I bet bourbon would wrok just as well. Who would know?

No way!

Lately, thee seems to be an influx or outpouring of potty news. The latest involving potties at the Sochi Olympics. Gotta put it on this blog.

I haven't been to Russia. I don't plan to go and I hope I never go there. This is only one reason why.

On a roll, I guess

A friend sent me a link to this exhibit in Texas.

Interesting exhibit.

Potty news everywhere I turn

Just reading the news this AM and I found this article. Potty news just keeps coming. As for outhouses, I have no attachment to them. I'm ever grateful for modern plumbing.    I would imagine there aren't many outhouses left in this country, certainly not in Southern CA.

Always seeking diverse potty alternatives

I found this while reading Italy Magazine. I have never seen one, let alone used one. But, they are more common in other countries.

Always seeking knowledge.....

There is an app for that

An article in the LA Times about a new app for potty breaks during movies. Yes, this is for real. It's called RunPee.
Here's the article.

Up North

One of my daughters was matron of honor in a wedding in the northern CA area this December. The venue was the Tavern at Lark Creek,  http://www.tavernatlarkcreek.com/ 
My daughter sent me some photos of the ladies' bathroom. The tavern is unique and in the midst of the redwoods. There is wood trim and paneling, and a gigantic skylit room for the recption, which is visible on the website.
