Drink of the Week and New CookBooks

So anyone who knows me, knows I cuss like a sailor...or at least anyone who knows me well.  I am pretty careful at work (I did work in an elementary school for 30 years) and I really don't want to offend anyone.  My language is pretty colorful at home...and don't even get me started if I am mad.

Knowing this, you won't be surprised by the new cookbooks my beautiful niece, Nichole, brought me when she returned on a recent trip.

Yep, the title is What the Fork Should I Make For Dinner...what did you think it said?  O.k. so that is not what it says, but I'm trying.

I brought out the drink book because I haven't had a drink of the week for a long time.  I made a Brandy Alexander because 1) the story with the drink made me laugh out loud, and 2) I had all the ingredients already.  It was a good drink for a cool night at home (have I told you it has rained every day all summer).  The books are funny, there is a story with every recipe, and if you can get past the F word on every page (yes, it was even a little much for me!) the stories are pretty funny.

Thanks Nichole.
