Dining with the Bloggers - May 18th

An EASY one this week - beverages! At least that was what Cathy claimed it would be, when she suggested it a while back.

Well, and then not so much so! Not because of the theme though, but because this last week has been more than usually hectic for me, and while I knew exactly what I wanted to make, I haven't done it. Yet.

Hang on one second...

Wait, is it okay to mix alcohol with antihistamines?;-)

I love reading The Food Whore's blog - she doesn't put up a lot of recipes, but her gossiping posts more than make up for it, and I love - love - love her bitchy-ness! I often cry from laughing reading it, and am amazed at some of her stories! Seriously - who would do this?!

The Lemon Drop Martini is a drink she's written about a couple of times, so when she revealed the ingredients a couple of months ago, it was diligently bookmarked and definitely comes in handy here on a icky cold May evening where I needed a little pick-me-up. Studying too much pathology will do that to you! It works, and I love it! Used regular vodka and a homemade sugar syrup and did put both hands on the shaker - I am under the influence of antihistamines, afterall!

Cathy's returned from Sicily and gone the lemon way too - looks yummy to me!

I sometimes suffer from total lack of control over my work life and don't get a chance to post to my own blog and my time to surf is totally limited. I really value your Dining with Bloggers posts. I find it's such a good way to find out what other people are up to and I have discovered quite a few blogs that I never would have found otherwise. Thanks so much for keeping it up. It's fantastic.

I'm so happy you're enjoying it Lyn - I'm having fun finding all of them, but I know just what you're saying re. the limited surfing time. SHF, IMBB and all of the other events, KIPlog and Food PornWatch - and comments here and on other food blogs - helps me keep updated, but there are so MANY NEW ones (not to mention great "older" ones!) out there I can't wait to get a better look at when I finish my exam!
