It’s Friday! So that means another cocktail/mocktail recipe. This week I’m bringing you a creamy frozen raspberry cheesecake shake/smoothie/drink/beverage with optional vodka. It was so so good. As you can see I had a hard time naming it. It doesn’t seem quite like a smoothie or a shake. I’ll just stick with raspberry cocktail for now.
Last Friday my husband got home late from work because he was golfing with a client. He has such a hard job sometime. He is a very hard worker and occasional golf is a small perk for me. As for me it meant I had to do dinner alone with the four kids.
On nights he isn’t home for dinner (once or twice a month) I’ll rent them a movie and let them have a picnic dinner in the living room. That frees me up to get a little extra work done or just relax. When possible I combine the two. Making cocktails for the blog for me is equal to golf for my husband.
