Good Morning, Loungettes!Happy Monday Monkey Day! Yesterday was a totally lazy day. Never even got dressed! Seems like I do that a lot lately. Anyway, planning on having a talk with the Administrator today, hoping changes will follow. I just realized this is Thanksgiving week, somehow I thought there was another couple of weeks to the holiday!
Trying something new today, grocery pick up. I put in an order on line, have my time reserved, will be picking up after work. We'll see how it goes. One of my cousins has been doing this for a while now, and my brother and sister in law were doing it even before covid. I did notice that I spent a lot less than I usually do, didn't realize how much impulse buying I've been doing.
Silly Sadie says Hi to everyone, and reminds everyone that the holiday is special time to spend with family and loved ones in whatever way makes sense during the pandemic.
Goldie--sounds like DH is getting better, managing to get the oil changed. The rehab will do him good, I bet. Yes, it is the DON that is doing the bullying, but she is not the only one. So far, only to staff. I'm not sure why Sadie was so underfoot the other day other than she was picking up on my being upset about stuff at work. She never stops surprising me. Praying the first infusion goes well.
LOL about hair color!
Cammy Cat--aw, pretty kitteh, here's a kiss for you!
Oh, my, Omaha Steaks! I've gotten those from time to time and they are GOOD! I hear you about the work thing. I tried to keep it to 8 hours. You better be eating, lady.
Jazzy--insurance stuff is so crazy. Don't blame you for letting the telehealth thing go. Telehealth stuff CAN work, but it takes a lot of behind the scenes work to make it go smoothly. My favorite Thanksgiving food is the combo of hot turkey, mashed potato, squash, all with butter and hot gravy, with cranberry on the side. I know, not one food, but I love the combo. Yes, I love the leftover or day after sandwich with all that on a slice of bread and smothered in gravy! I can't imagine red chili on anything, let alone everything! All those hot peppers make my tongue blister.
Chi--Happy Engagement Anniversary!
Illi--I'm not so crazy about the green bean casserole, but I never encountered that until I was an adult. Sorry about the guest who had to drop out. Hope the son has a mild illness.
Celia--I'm hoping for change at work, which often requires some work before calming down. But the job is worth making an effort to fix the problem. Still holding to my timeline, though.
- 2 ounces gin
- 3/4 ounce sweet vermouth
- 3/4 ounce Dubonnet Rouge
- 1/4 ounce Luxardo maraschino liqueur
- Garnish: apple slice fan*
- Add all the ingredients to a mixing glass filled with ice.
- Stir until well-chilled, and strain into a cocktail glass.
- Garnish with an apple slice fan.
*Apple slice fan: Stand an apple upright, and cut a chunk from the side, being careful to avoid the core and seeds. Lie the apple chunk face down, then halve it so that the apple flesh is exposed. Cut four thin slices from the exposed side. Place the apple pieces together, pierce them with a cocktail pick about one third of the way from the bottom. Then fan them out and place in your drink, resting the cocktail pick on the rim of the glass.
