    Todo por servir, se acaba - Thursday #563

    Uh, It's been a weird few weeks.

    I went out to the store and when I came in, I saw that Nelson Mandela had passed.

    In the past few weeks, I got the news that a brother in law and a former co-worker had died, then Gini.

    --------------

    Todo por servir, se acaba.


    Everything that is useful, will wear out.

    My mom used that saying quite a bit, about material things and about people.

    I pondered those words for years - until I started to see what they meant.

    It's a simple lament about something that you use or depend on finally wearing out.

    It's also a little salute as to how useful that item or person was in your life.

    We get a little flustered, lost and then we get our bearings back and breathe again.

    ------------------------

    Lemon Drop.

    1.5 oz Vodka
    .5 oz triple sec
    1 tsp sugar
    .75 oz fresh lemon juice.

    Mix and serve in a sugar rimmed glass.

    Done.

    FOUND GINI'S LD RECIPE......

    Lemon Drop Martini

    2 oz Lemon Flavoured Vodka
    2 oz Triple Sec
    2 oz Margarita Mix
    oz Lime Cordial (I add a bit more than this)

    Fill a shaker with crushed ice.
    Squeeze in a big wedge of lemon, then drop in the whole wedge.
    Add all the ingredients above.
    Shake, not stir. Strain in a martini glass and enjoy!

    Hahaha, I have a box of lemon pound cake that I have been hoarding...

    Tea? Sure bet.

    Slick,

    I knew it was in here, someplace. The L&F maybe?

    DONE!

    Thanks - tea and lemon cake sounds lovely! Perfect for a dark winter evening - it gets dark around 4 or so up here this time of year! And with a storm coming, perfect for warming from the inside out!

    If I ever had to describe the color yellow to a blind person, I would say it feels like sunlight warm on your skin, and tastes likes lemon and butter!

    I had a high school friend over last night to help finish decorating my tree. I was all excited to make her a lemon drop. Did all my shopping but low and behold I forgot the Triple Sec. Made it anyway without it - drinkable, but not the same.

    Weather still below zero here so I will take a hot toddy please, and make him as good looking as you, Richard.

    Hee hee! What's in a hot toddy, anyway? And does hot buttered rum really have butter melted into the booze? Not a drinker of alcohol, so just curious!

    Yes, but you MUST use butter, not margarine!
