More This and That

IN THE NEWS: Wife Chops Off Husband's Penis, Throws in Garbage Disposal. Read more HERE. (Oh. My. Gosh. Crazy nuts.)

Hey, all!
I found another summer drink in addition to my pineapple chili margaritas I usually make. It's called a Stoli Doli.

(Yes, I apparently like pineapple drinks)

Well, I took a fresh pineapple and sliced it up, layered it in my ice tea jug and then poured vodka over the pineapple pieces. You need to let it sit for at least a few days but no more than a week to let the pineapple infuse into the vodka. Then take a shaker and fill it with ice, put some pineapple vodka in it, and a just a little bit of actual pineapple juice and a splash of orange juice. Shake it up and serve in a martini glass. They are SO good!

You're welcome. :-)
In other this and thats...
I forgot to mention what my kiddo said to me the first time I called home when I was in NYC for RWA Nationals.

Me: "Hi, sweetie!"
Kiddo: "Mommy, all I hear is party party party! When are you going to workshops?!"
Me: (laughing) "The parties are at night. All day I'm in workshops. Honest."
Kiddo: (still sounding petulant) "Oh."

I have to admit I had to wonder just what my hubby was telling our daughter while I was away. LOL

And lastly, my author friend, Melissa McClone will be on my blog this Monday for her blog tour. Melissa writes for Harlequin Romance and has a new book out:
Not So Perfect Princess.

Melissa will be giving way a $20 Amazon gift certificate to one commenter at the end of the tour. She will also be giving away, at each stop, a set of three trading cards from this book to one commenter. So stop by if you have the chance!!

**FYI: I picked up her trading cards at RWA Nationals and they are lovely! I use them as bookmarks.

Whew! That's it for me.

Have a great weekend!!

Oh Jennifer, I love pineapple. Now I know what I'll be "cooking" tonight. :) Don't worry, I'll make some food to go with what sounds like an amazing drink. Thanks for the recipe!

Love it that you had such a good time in NYC.

OMG! Men everywhere are crossing their legs and tearing up! lol

If I liked pineapple, I'd say yum. But I don't. :)

Have a great weekend!

Erm. Still a bit stunned by your opener ...

The drink sounds great. I wonder if I have enough patience to let the pineapple sit for a few days beforehand. I'm betting not ;)

Linda Kage said...

The drink sounds good. I love liquored up fruit, expecially watermelon! Congrats to Melissa on her sale!

Jennifer Shirk said...

Mmm...watermelon. I need to check that out!

Carol Kilgore said...

I'm so trying your new drink :)

Happy Weekend!

I think virtual book tours are one of the best things going. I'm so glad Melissa is coming to your blog Monday.

Wishing you a great weekend, Jennifer!

The pineapple drink sounds fabulous. Yum!! Have a great weekend!

Stephanie Faris said...

I'll stop by Monday! That pineapple drink sounds yummy. One of my favorite drinks is Malibu rum and pineapple juice.

Sarah Pearson said...

Okay, I hate pineapple but I really really want to drink something called a Stoli Doli. That is an awesome name :)

I read that article about the husband and the penis and the garbage disposal through facebook. UGH! What in the world did that poor man do? Maybe all he did was marry a crazy woman!?

And what your child said to you when you came home from the conference sounds like conversations I've had with my oldest child, too. She is very strict with me about how I spend my time. So funny. :)


Misha said...

That cocktail sounds delicious. :-)

Have a great weekend!

Nancy said...

Your drink sounds very festive. I don't care for pineapple or vodka, but somehow, I bet this is yummy. I'm so glad you had fun on your trip.

Jo Bryant said...

It sounds yummy - will be giving it a try

Sandra Cox said...

Oh yum:)
Wishing Melissa a wonderful tour.

Another Lorena Bobbit :)

I love pineapple; just cut one up this morning and put it in the fridge. In fact, one of my favorite kitchen gadgets is the pineapple corer my mom got me last year -- works great, and you get a decorative shell out of it too.
