I feel all displaced now that the weather has gone from sultry hot to cold and freaky and this back to school business is ridiculous. I’d home school my kids except I’m dumber than them. Anyway, I’m trying to roll with the times and embrace the cold and the loneliness. I’m still wearing sandals but that England World Cup tshirt is for the gym only. The fall wardrobe is still up in the air. I read in the Toronto Star last week the camel coat was the autumn must-have. I told this to someone at a wedding on Sunday and they thought I said “camel toe”…of course they did…but camel toe is always in season. Enough of fashion. I do like a change of season because you can change your eating and drinking habits. Fruit: be gone and take your little flies with you. Vodka, you’re starting to bore me, there are only so many flavours of Vitamin Water to disguise you. Bring on the gourds and the brown drinks. Yesterday I made myself a “whiskey sour” while I hunkered down in my ashram to watch Episode 7 of Madmen. In a flurry of inspiration, I have started another blog call “My Tv Fez” where I will invite discussion of what I watch, instead of just falling asleep afterwards, click here for the link….it’s still a baby so it’s not on google-able yet. Anyway, Don Draper drinks a lot of Canadian Rye which I think is hot. Bourbon is good too. Here is the recipe:
Shot of brown drink (bourbon, rye or whiskey)
Squeeze in a half a lemon
Simple syrup…sugar dissolved in water…to taste and serve it on ice, with or without the cherry
And let the autumn come!
This recipe is also excellent with dark rum and a lot of ice, a variation on rum punch (with a kick)
Love this blog..always makes me laugh and relate….ie: comment about home schooling.
Keep them coming!
In the spirit of the colloquial, let’s call it a “toron-toe”
