Cocktail Wednesday - Peppermint White Russian

This past Wednesday's drink was a Peppermint White Russian.   Recipe from here.


Ingredients:
  • Vodka
  • Peppermint Schnaps
  • Kahlua
  • Cream
 


So I put ice in the glasses, then added one part vodka, one part schnaps, one part Kahlua, and topped it off with cream.  It was tasty.  A little too minty for my taste.  Would probably be better with less schnaps, more Kahlua, and heavy cream.  Thursday I had a Kahlua and cream.


Cocktail Wednesday - Pear Mule

I need to play some catch up with my blog posts.  We had the pear mule a couple of weeks ago.  Recipe from here


Ingredients:
Absolut Pear Vodka - 3 oz
Ginger Beer - 1 oz
Lime Juice (splash)
Pear Garnish


It was really yummy!  And 80% of my kids were there.  Here's a pic, after the fact.

Soup #10 - Slow Cooker Nacho Soup

I made it to #10 this weekend with Slow Cooker Nacho Soup.  I had almost all of the ingredients at the house so it was great.

Here's where I got the recipe.  Gotta love Pinterest.  Mine didn't look nearly as good as the original, but that might be because I don't have the right kind of bowls ..



It was nice to be able to put it in the pot and forget about it for a few hours.  I would definitely make again.
