What’s With Today Today?

On Monday…

Kiefer: What do you want to do on Wednesday?

Me: I don’t know. What do you want to do?

Kiefer: Ummmm…is this a trick question? Wednesday is your birthday.

Me: Ohhhhhhhh!

Happy Birthday to me!

Today I’m showing you the first birthday present I received this year.

You may remember my obsession hoarding collection of flavored vodka.

I have Cake, Coconut, Marshmallow, Cotton Candy, Orange Whipped, Cookie Dough, Cherry Whipped, and Gummy flavors. But I was missing a flavor: Key Lime Whipped.

To find the elusive Key Lime Whipped vodka, I visited liquor store after liquor store after liquor store.

No Key Lime Whipped vodka.

Then…Misty and I met up for dinner. We sipped Key Lime Pie martinis as I opened my birthday present and saw the elusive Key Lime Pie vodka.

Thanks, Misty!

Now I know what to tell Kiefer I want to do tonight. Have him make me Key Lime Pie vodka martinis.

Taste Test Tuesday: Larabars

After a recent trial with MyFoodDiary.com, I learned a few things about my eating habits:

  1. I eat a lot.
  2. Sometimes I don’t get enough iron.
  3. I seldom eat enough protein.
  4. I eat entirely too much sugar. Who knew? Duh….

So I decided to cut back on sugar eat more protein. You know what has protein and is healthy? Larabars.

And LeashieLoo and BlissfulBrit eat them all the time, so I bought a few different flavors.

  • Cherry Pie Bar: I do like cherry pie. I wish it was a cherry-pie-with-ice-cream bar.
  • Blueberry Muffin Bar: I love blueberry muffins, so I was really excited to try it. But it wasn’t sweet enough for me.
  • Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bar: I don’t think it really tasted like cookie dough. Except for the texture. I still liked it though.
  • Carrot Cake: This was ok. Unfortunately, it was missing the cream cheese icing.

If you’ve never tasted a Larabar, you should know they’re  not crunchy. They’re soft and chewy, which I prefer. I liked the Cherry Pie flavor the best.

I want to try the Chocolate Coconut Chew and Key Lime Pie bars, but they continue to elude me.

Has anyone heard of a key lime pie conspiracy? First I can’t find the Key Lime Pie vodka, and now the Larabar…Is there a shortage of key limes?

Vodka? Check.

Doomsday and Disaster Preppers said people should have enough food, water, and supplies to last 3 days.

For me, that means…

I am totally unprepared for any disaster…even especially zombies.

I’m supposed to have canned food. Does cat food count?

I’m supposed to have bottled water. Instead, I have vodka.

I’m collecting flavored vodka.

At least I have some first aid supplies. And by “first aid,” I mean band aids…Hello Kitty band-aids.

Are Those Gummy Bears Drunk?

Awhile back fellow blogger LeashieLoo said to put gummy bears in alcohol because it makes them swell up. Plus, you know, alcoholic candy is always nice.

Because I’ve recently become obsessed with the Pinnacle vodka flavors, I decided to try it.

Step 1. Gather the gummy bears, gummy-flavored vodka, and a glass. I used a wine glass cause I was out of plastic red cups I’m classy like that.

Step 2. Taste a gummy bear for quality control purposes.

Step 3. Sip the vodka to wash down the gummy bear.

Step 4. Place gummy bears and vodka in a glass. Cover and refrigerate for a couple days.

Step 5. Eat the alcohol-infused gummy bear.

Step 6. Scream “Oh dear god, it burns!”

Step 7. Repeat.

Step 8. Repeat again.

Step 9. Repeat until you start to feel bad about eating the gummy bears because gummy bears have feelings, too.
