YUMMY! Great topic choice! Thanks Pam for hosting Random Recipes. Please visit her blog HERE for more entries or just to read her fabulous blog!

*******************Also, Thanks to everyone you commented on my previous post (and those that emailed). We are doing better. Several of you asked if the company or security company would reimburse us. No, the company has a policy that they are not responsible for anything happening to your personal belongings in the parking lots. Is this a load or what? Why have security officers then? Oh well, we have moved on. What else is there to do?? hahahaha Hope you are having a great day!

Delicious appetizer! I am not a vodka lover, scary where it takes me - without notice! Sorry the trouble makers aren't paying for the trouble they caused, why does that happen so often? I am glad you are feeling better. Hugs.

I like the sound of that vodka cocktail. Great idea for summer. If I get round to making that, I'll post a photo - from the 'before' moment, anyway.
