Bailey’s

I need to convince myself that I am doing well.

Every now and then I get into a funk and just want to sit around doing nothing. The solution of course is to start doing things, but when I have to force myself to do anything, I have a problem. I have felt this way for some time now but I think things are starting to turn around. Maybe that is the reason the blog has been hit and miss lately.

I am in the middle of a couple of projects and with the holiday season fast approaching there are numerous reasons to get my ass in gear. There are also a lot of Christmas movies that need to be watched. The weather is promising to be very nice on the weekend and at the risk of offending veterans, I plan on putting up the lights. We will see how it all plays out.

I need to plan the window painting for this year. I was thinking today that I might get a few options ready and ask Hurricane and Tornado what they think. Maybe they will come up with something wonderful. Maybe they will come up with something far beyond my capabilities. I guess I will see.

I am pretty much done for tonight, but since I am thinking about the holidays, I would like to share this recipe for home made Baileys. I like it and perhaps it is the reason that the Christmas window paintings are more often than not crooked. It is a small price to pay for chocolaty, alcoholic bliss.

BAILEY’S IRISH CREAM

1 - cup of light cream
1 - 14 oz can of eagle brand  ( I use 1 ½ of the smaller cans. I don’t think there are 14 oz cans in Canada.)
1 2/3 cups of Irish whiskey (I use Canadian Club)
1 tsp. Instant coffee
2 tbsp. chocolate syrup
1 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. almond extract


Blend. Bottle and refrigerate. Shake before using.
