Mojito recipe? Please? *jumps up and down a little*

Laurel

Another yummy Sunday night dinner by that Xav fella? Man, I need to find me oneof those! :)
Mmmm...lobster... What kind of candy is it, like a taffy? (Oh, and you could re-use the candy pic for today's Vox Hunt ~ there's a heart in the blue section!)

I used to get carried away with pruning too. It's very soul-satisfying, for some reason... my wife at the time would come home and there'd be landscaping missing, and me with a sheepish expression out by the green bin.

George, all of my cocktail recipes are for two people, so add/subtract accordingly:
mash up about 4-5 sprigs of mint in a cocktail shaker (remove the stems)
add about 4-5 teaspoons of simple syrup (you can make this in the microwave - equal parts sugar and water, then let cool)
squeeze the juice of one good sized lime into the shaker
add 5 ounces of white rum (iusedbrazilian rum: Leblonbecause the next thing I want to mix up is the caipiriniha)
add ice and shake the hell out of it.
poor into martini glasses (I prefer to strain the ice leaves), top with a bit of san peligrino (or other fizzy water) and garnish with a mint leaf.
Laurel, being married to a man who cooks is divine. I'd pick cooking over laundry, cleaning the house or just about any other shared chore. He does all the grocery shopping too. Every day. He's french.:-)
Mark,Xav andI have a treaty about pruning: I can cut whatever I want and as much as I want, as long as I don't destroy the primary purpose of the greenery: privacy.

Laurel, almost forgot about the candy. My older daughter found the recipe in a kid's cooking book. It's pure sugar and doesn't require any cooking. It's a mix of powdered sugar, corn syrup, butter, vanilla and salt, and we are letting harden overnight. Have no idea how it will taste but the process of making it kept us all amused for the better part of an hour...

Karen, I spent two and a half hours in the front yard this morning, trying to hack back our wisteria (which doesn't bloom, have never bloomed, erggh!) and the wild clematis that is taking over the front yard. I had planned to take a load of "lawn debris" to the dump, and last night I was wondering if I'd ever be able to fill the truck. What a joke! The truck is 2/3 full now.The best part of gardening is getting to kill things. Oh, and having your beloved cook you lobster. Wow.

Wait a minute. Let me get this straight. Your lemon tree produces lemonsfor lemons?
"Who ate all the grapes--the ones I was saving?"

"I met this guy, and he looked like he might have been a hat-check clerk at an ice rink."
"Which, in fact, he turned out to be."
