hmm....what to say what to say.....

"mama always said if you can't say anything nice don't say anything at all."

Then this would be a rather blank entry. But, onward we must go!

Dear Angry Orchard,
 I am just not impressed. I must admit I have only tried two flavors so far. I have yet to try the original flavor...though I don't feel any real need to. People appear to LOVE your original flavor with a shot of fireball in it. No thank you. I prefer to keep my been and liqueur separate. I'd rather not find out what it would do to me. meh. I've already posted about the Ginger. eh...it was .....ok. I will say that you have come further along with your cinnful apple was much better. I guess I find them to be to....mellow...for my tastes. When I see something that says it has a flavor...I expect to be smacked in the face with flavor!!!! Not....oh....ummm....here I....am. Kinda attitude.

   Now as I have mentioned I have yet to try the basic flavor. It's on my list to try. When I have nothing more interesting to try that is. As I have also mentioned.....it is a hot seller! So don't take my word for it! You might find a new favorite!

Hmm....about the actual cinnful apple.....it had a mellow cinnamon flavor. the cider was smooth. it was easy to drink. something I would drink if i didn't want the smack me in my face flavor...which happens occasionally.

Mama I wasn't mean.

Happy drinking!!!!

Redd's

-looks up at link. deliriously happy face-

When Redd's came out with their apple ale all I could think of was....this can't get any better! OH but wait!

IT DID!!!!!!

Redd's then came out with a STRAWBERRY ale!!!!

I had been off for my regular two days in a row. Oblivious to the little fact that something new and delicious was arriving at work! Then while ringing someone up...plop....a 6 pack of redd's....strawberry?! WHAAAAA! My eyes pop open....all I could say was...."whaaaa!" While pointing at it and looking around for boss man. "when did this happen!" To say the least gentlemen had to laugh at me. I was rather silly in my happy surprise.

So off I go to check it out! Then the -oh me so happy!- look crosses my face as not only a 6 pack is there but, lo and behold a 12 pack!!!!!! Now keep in my mind I've never tried this! Oh, but the excitement is there! So by the time I get off at closing that night I'm super excited to get home and try it out!

After the first crisp pop of the top....the delightful scent of a clean ale...enfolded into the scent is that of fresh strawberries. Memories of bright summer days, picking fresh strawberries and popping them straight into your mouth. The burst of fresh sweetness pouring down your throat as you devour one after another! This is what I'm reminded of every and each time I pop open a new bottle! The deliverance of flavor and crispness of taste is to be sought after in every bottle! They have gone beyond my expectation!

BRAVO REDD'S!!!!

I will say, I find that their apple is not as sweet as the strawberry. Which makes me happy and gives me a choice depending on my mood! Happy drink and stop by for your six or twelve pack! I'll be there!

August where did you go?

WOW!!!! I just realized I haven't posted anything in all of August! What HAPPENED!!!!!

Allow me to fill you in!
My oldest, Marilyn Deville, Started Pre-K! I know right! She is how old again! You remember when I was pregnant with her! Where has the time gone! By the way.....she LOVES it! It was her sister, Madilyn Chevelle, and myself who had a hard time dealing with her not being there.  We went to Target for snacks! Then of course getting use to a whole new routine!

Then I decided I needed to de-junk my house.....wowzer. What an under taking! I'm actually working on getting rid of a lot of....stuff....you know..The ....stuff....that just accumulates everywhere. Yea that....stuff.....hehehe. I said.....stuff. lol!

-Looks up at the last paragraph and proceeds to facepalm self-
-sound of loud smacking-
"ouch."

Then of course I have all of my "helpers".

Be sure to keep an eye on my Tumblr for random pictures of the babies and dogs and kitties and ....well whatever else I decide to share! The link is at the top of the blog! No....you don't have to have an account to read it! Just go enjoy!

August was a busy month. September looks as if it will be just as busy! Getting ready for all the birthdays and holidays coming along! Egad! Oh the excitement though!

So, during this stretch of non-blogging I have been putting together evil evil plans! Plans that deal with mint brownies, candy, strawberry cake, graham crackers, and marshmallows! I've not had the time to make any of them yet.

-sad face-

I am putting together recipes and testing! I messed around with some cinnamon candy....and it flopped. It was a rather tasty flop...but a flop all the same.

So in conclusion my dear readers! I haven't forgotten you!

Hopefully soon I will have some tasty things for you!

-happy face!-

Til then happy baking/eating/drinking!
