Another week, another Friday.
First of all – can we just for a moment, contemplate how awesome I have to be to grow a cucumber shaped like this?
I’m going to say this is not a weird cucumber, its a rustic cucumber. Uh huh.
I snuck in another good and sweaty workout last night and I am looking forward to relaxing a bit this weekend –I have big plans to see and spoil my favorite 2 year old girl, have coffee with my old college roommate, a local small town baseball game (Go Barnstormers!) and maybe fit in a bike ride or nice easy outside run somewhere in there.
But first and foremost I get to enjoy my Friday night. Ever since really sticking to my water weekdays plan, I’ve gotten a lot more picky about what I choose to drink come the weekend. Sometimes a beer is just too heavy or honest, not good enough to justify the drink. And since its rare that I can finish a bottle of wine in a weekend – I’ve been experimenting with making some fun cocktails and enjoying them out on the deck while the summer sticks around. For the past few weeks I’ve been trying to teach myself to enjoy tequila – but this week, I’m giving that a break and thinking I may go for another one of these:
A greyhound, with fresh squeezed grapefruit juice and vodka (although I have seen it made with gin). Insanely refreshing (if you like grapefruit juice) and just a nice, easy to make, easy to drink kind of drink. But then again, should I repeat or go for a new drink just for fun?
I’m a Rye girl through and through and still love my grapefruit juice – so this recipe caught my eye.
But then again, a greyhound can also be made with gin – and that got me thinkin’, it could be a dirty martini kind of night (double the olives, please!)
That just leaves me to figure out what the heck to make for dinner…I mean, chips and salsa doesn’t count…does it?
Happy Friday ya’ll! 🙂 Go make someone’s day
