This is a journal of my vegetable gardens. Skippy was my first dog and he thought the garden was his, even though I did all the work. Now Suzie and Charley follow in his footsteps. We're located near Boston (USDA zone 6A). I have a community plot, a backyard vegetable garden, fruit trees, berry bushes, chickens, and bees. I use sustainable organic methods and do my best to grow all of my family's vegetables myself.

super bowl martini

Go Saints!

Today's martini recipe:
Chill two glasses, martini shaker and a nice bourbon. To shaker add: crushed ice, chilled bourbon, a couple drops sweet vermouth, and wave the Angostura bitters nearby. Shake well. Pour into chilled glasses with skewered Maraschino cherry and dried fruits (fig, cherry, cranberry). Add Maraschino cherry juice to sweeten taste.

(This is called a bourbon martini, also a Sahara-dry Manhattan.)

Quite a Super Bowl party for you guys!! That recipe sounds like the good old "Old-fashioned" drink your Dad and I used to enjoy. Or the "Manhattan" cocktail all us Old-timers used to imbibe. Yum!

You have interesting glasses too--very festive as befitting that SUPER game.
