Bloody Marys have become the Official Drink of My Boyfriend and Me. (We’re waiting for our endorsement deal.)
*Horseradish Bloody mix (wish I remembered the brand)
*Hot pickles and a little bit of juice
Procuring the ingredients made going out in a blinding rainstorm totally worthwhile.
My boyfriend (because I have one now and he is awesome) is outdoorsy. It’s one of his few flaws. I support nature’s right to exist, but I feel like humans have evolved into social, urban creatures, so shouldn’t we celebrate that? By sleeping in comfy beds? He wants to go camping with me this summer, like actual camping, with hiking and hanging bags of food in trees so bears can’t get into it. This is so terrifying to me.
But: have you ever considered that you can make s’mores with Reese’s peanut butter cups instead of regular Hershey bars? Or with Nutella? This is making the prospect of sleeping outside more palatable.
And even better if we just spend the day at a beach instead and then go back to use the fire pit in his backyard.
This goal has had the unintended consequence of reminding me exactly how long an extended school year can be.
This was extremely mediocre, probably because I’m used to a damn fine peanut sauce, which this is not. I think I added about every Thai ingredient I had around (and that’s a pretty decent number) but I still couldn’t get it to taste right. Really, I just felt bad for the commenters who said “This is exactly how it tastes at my favorite Thai restaurant!” PEOPLE. NO.
