Because of my surgery on Monday, I cannot have any adult beverages this week, which is driving me NUTS. Surrsly - mama like her glass of wine after the Trips go to bed every night. It's not like I'm overdoing it - just one a night - but it's killing me!!!
I came across the following recipe recently, and rest assured once I get all the meds out of my system, I will be making it. Oh yes, I will. In the meantime, raise a glass or two for me, and if you make it, lemme know how wonderous it REALLY is:
