Another Friday

Unlike most people, Friday is not a day that I really look forward to. Granted I don't dread it, but it's not awesome either. But this Friday is exciting for another reason. Star Wars Episode 1 in 3D! 

I think I'm in the minority when I say that out of the 3 new movies, this one is my favorite. I don't have really deep, knowledgeable reasons as to why it's my favorite, it just is. I like the pod racing scene, I also don't like Hayden Christensen in the 2nd and 3rd- he gives me the creeps a little a lot. Also, I like Darth Maul in a weird sith, dark side sort of yea, hate if you must, makes no difference to me:).

Clearly I should not go into the movie critiquing field.

Now, on to food related things, seeing as how this is primarily a food blog after all. 

Another thing that makes up for Friday being a less than average day is Friday Cocktails! This week I made a Blushin' Russian. I suggest all of you go to the store, buy these ingredients and make this drink. Pronto!

Blushin' Russian

You will need:
  • 1/4 oz vodka
  • 1 oz Kahlua (or any other coffee liqueur)
  • 2 scoops vanilla ice cream, slightly softened
  • 4 large strawberries, quartered
Add all the ingredients to a blender or emulsifier and blend til smooth. Garnish with a strawberry and top with whipped cream.

  1. I speak from experience- this. was. DELICIOUS. :)

  2. Does this mean I' m not getting my Kahlua back?

  3. um that drink sounds insanely good!!! I actually thought "she's a nerd" when I just read the star wars part. But a pretty nerd!!
