It’s Wednesday, which means it’s time to brush off the stress, negativity and blah of your week. Enjoy some mid-week mixers with us without leaving the comfort of your home. Uncork your favorite wine, pop open a beer, mix your favorite cocktail…. and unwind with us this evening. And, if you’re feeling extra perky in the mornings, or need some help getting a jump on your day, join us for Morning Coffee weekday mornings, too!
Yummy treats and random chit-chat starts our Happy Hour together!
Fried Milk. Yep. It’s a thing! This recipe makes for a sweet, fun appetizer – taking a step back from the traditional savory treats we usually munch on. It’s basically a milky custard that has a crunchy, Panko outer shell, and they sound absolutely amazing and unique, don’t they!?!
What sweet appetizers do you like to snack on?
Some of us (Jeni) prefer salty snacks when we have alcohol… so I’m sharing another appetizer! The more, the merrier, right!? These are Beer-Battered Fried Avocado Wedges. I already have all of my ingredients out and will be making them while we all chat! I hope they turn out as good as they sound!
What fried foods do you enjoy?
Wouldn’t it be great to get soft serve ice cream from your own kitchen? Ahhh…. the dreams we have. But this one might just become reality. LG created this automated machine they call SnowWhite – well, they didn’t create it as much as it’s a concept in the works. However, their goal is for you to make ice cream, gelato and other desserts in 2-5 minutes in your own kitchen. Oh, and the machine is supposed to clean itself, too. Read more HERE!
Try a fun, new adult beverage this week, or save the recipes for parties with friends!
I (Sarah) received these Anthon Berg Chocolate Liqueurs as a gift from a friend yesterday. So, seeing as today is Happy Hour day, I saved them for this occasion! These are a great treat for chocolate and liqueur lovers, like me. Plus, they won’t give me a hangover 🙂 I’ve had a couple so far and they are outstanding! The dark chocolate and the alcohol taste SO YUMMY together!
What’s your poison today?
Tonight, I (Jeni) need a quick little shot of relaxation…so I’m going for these yummy 99 Proof shots! The Root Beer tastes exactly like root beer, and the Butterscotch is sweet and divine! These are so smooth and yummy, I don’t need to wash them down with anything after drinking them. mmmmmm!
What are your favorite shots?
What’s Happy Hour without getting all that negativity out of your system? Get it out and let it go!
This is my (Sarah’s) dirty little secret. Fingernails that I bite way down until they peel and bleed around the cuticles. I’ve tried those bitter polishes, hypnosis, acrylic nails, manicures, even counseling and nothing keeps me from biting my nails. I bite them because I hate the way nails feel on my fingers. Lately my boyfriend has been bringing up how much my nail biting bothers him, so I’m trying again to stop and it’s sooo hard!
If you are a fingernail biter why do you bite your nails? If you used to bite your fingernails, I would love to hear how you stopped!
I (Jeni) am a huge grammar snob. I respect the English language and appreciate it. So, when it’s mangled and stomped on, I get irritated, aggravated, and a little snobby about it. This is especially geared toward people that are now adults. These people have been surrounded by and exposed to proper grammar, yet ignore it, apparently. It drives me NUTS. My biggest pet peeve right now is pluralizing with apostrophes. I don’t know WHY people are doing this so much. For example:
WRONG: My retro toy’s are so fun.
PROPER: My retro toys are so fun.
WRONG: I ate so many pancake’s yesterday.
PROPER: I ate so many pancakes yesterday.
If I see it, I call it out, and hope that it doesn’t happen again. It’s my duty as a protector of the English language, right? 🙂
Do you have any grammar pet peeves?
Your drink should be kicking in by now, so let’s have some giggles together!
Ok, friends, it’s time to shut down Happy Hour and get back to reality! But first, grab that last bargain drink, and check out some limited time deals and treat yourself this week to something special! You deserve it!
