Was It All A Dream?

"A person is neither whole nor healthy without the memories of photo albums. They are the storybook of our lives. They provide a nostalgic escape from the tormented days of the present."

Patrick Garry


I was at an art supply store recently and noticed several aisles devoted to scrap booking. Do people still do this? In this age of MySpace, Facebook, and blogs, it is refreshing to think that there are still people out there carrying on this lovely tradition. My mother-in-law, Betty, maintained many scrapbooks and photo albums. Women of her generation saved all of their correspondence, society notices, pressed corsages, invitations, and photo memories in leather bound albums. I pulled out one today and found pictures of a beach cottage weekend with friends. They are charming and magical. A few could be movie stills.


Summer: 1941

The Blitzkrieg:

1 oz Goldschlager

1 oz Jagermeister

1 oz Rumple Minze

Directions:

Place the liqours in seperate shot glasses. This is a series of shots; first shoot the Rumple Minze, then the Jagermeister, then the Goldschlager. Do them fast, and they are very smooth. Afterwards, you will initially just taste the cinnamon of the Goldschlager, but then the Rumple Minze's peppermint flavor seems to make a return, and it tastes like you just ate a mint.

Serve Blitzkrieg in shot glasses.































My personal favorite...
