Daily Cupcakes: December 7th, 2010


Unless the Avs, and Kyle Quincey, can start playing better... it's going to be a Blue Christmas: so here is the recipe for Blue Christmas

1 1/2 oz blue Curaçao
1/2 oz orange juice, freshly squeezed
1/2 oz lime juice, freshly squeezed
Tonic water


Unless, that is, you are like me snowed in. Unfortunately over 3 feet of snow since Sunday night, and it just doesn't seem to want to stop. In that case, I suggest you snuggle up with some blankets and a Christmas movie, I recommend Die Hard or Love, Actually, and enjoy some hot rum cider.

6 cups apple cider
4 tbsp brown sugar
1 tbsp butter
1½ cups amber rum

In a saucepan, bring to boil 6 cups apple cider and 4 tbsp brown sugar. Reduce heat and add 1 tbsp butter. When butter has melted, add 1½ cups amber rum. Stir and serve in heatproof mugs.


Onto other news you are dying to hear about: Uh- Oh. This could lead to trou-ble!

A judge has just thrown out a martial agreement that would have made Frank McCourt the sole owner of the Los Angeles Dodgers ... but that's not the end of the story.


Who says Canadians are passive? UFC 131 to be hosted in Toronto. Hey, if this means more GSP, I'm all for it!

Ontario announced in August that it would allow mixed martial arts, starting in 2011.


Breaking News: Jim beaver (Bobby from SuperNatural) is not dead.  thank Goodness, would have hampered my enjoyment of the show. Older men for the win!

I'm not dead or sick or abducted by Belgian midgets or imprisoned by a paralyzer ray. I've just been testing the theory that there's life outside the internet. (There is, but the people there weigh their words and are far less likely to say something that would get them punched.)

Back to Christmas, sorry... if you could see what I see outside of my window you'd understand my fascination with it. I have snow on top of my BBQ that is almost as high as my BBQ, in fact my BBQ is now almost completely covered.

An Awesome Holiday light display. 

Oh, speaking of cuddling up in blankets to watch movies... right now an electric blanket sounds so glorious. Yes, I need to dig mine out of its' hiding space. Although everything is hiding at the moment. Oh, speaking of... this is a reminder to all you lovely pet owners out there, please remember to watch your pets carefully outside.  Poor little buggers that are stuck out there in this stuff won't be able to find their way home. In case you find yourself  missing a puppy (or kitty) the has helpful hints as to how to help find your poor, lost, helpless little animal.


Swift action, coupled with major neighborhood networking, will increase the odds of having your furry friend back in your arms! The key is to get the information out to as many people and places as you can, so enlist the help of friends and make sure to involve your entire family in the search effort.


Well, I hope I helped you plan for a great evening!  If you'd like more movie suggestions, just ask... unless it has to do with popular, classic Christmas movies... which apparently I have no knowledge of!
