It’s Friday, I figured you needed a drink.
That’s the only plan we have this weekend, drinks at our favorite local spot. Just the two of us. <happy dance, happy dance>
This is a working weekend for me, working on something really, SUPER awesome and BIG! Obviously, I’m going to share it with you, but you’ll have to wait until next week.
One hint: Health.
Alright, what’s everyone else doing this weekend? baking/cooking? Celebrating Halloween like everyone else? Yeah, we’re totally lame. Whatever you do, have fun & be safe!
BTW: For those who are gluten-free, here’s a big long list of candy that’s safe!

This is a delicious champagne cocktail, perfect for a wedding or baby shower, holiday party, girls night, etc.
- 2 teaspoons fresh ginger, peeled and finely grated
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 [750ml] bottle of sparkling wine [i.e. Cava, Prosecco, or Champagne]
Set a fine-mesh sieve over a small bowl; set aside.
In a small saucepan, boil ginger, sugar, and 1/4 cup water until it becomes a syrup, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat and pour through sieve and into a bowl, discarding solids.
Pour about a tablespoon of syrup into each champagne glass. Top with sparkling wine, gently stir.
*to store syrup, refrigerate in an airtight container, up to 1 week.
