White trash margarita

As I'm sure most of you would agree, there is almost nothing tastier or more vegetarian than a margarita. Being the awesome hostess that I am, I always have tequila and triple sec on hand. Unfortunately, I don't always have margarita mix. I do, however, always have Kool-aid mix and sugar handy. You see where this is going.

fill a high ball glass about halfway with ice
add 1 to 2 oz tequila
.5 to 1 oz triple sec
top with favorite flavor Kool-aid
stir and enjoy

don't bother with the salt, it only detracts from the white trashiness of the drink. Really, what were you thinking?!?

The endless possibilities of yogurt

Since I don't go out to eat much anymore, I thought I'd share some of my more awesome homemade creations with you.

spoiled milk alternative

a short back story:
I don't drink a lot of milk. The only reason I buy it is for my morning/afternoon coffee. At this rate of consumption, I am often greeted by curdled milk in the morning. Its so sad, as often I don't realize until I pour it into my coffee. This morning, faced with either black or rotten coffee I was hit by a stroke of genius: I could scrap the congealed cream of the top of the yogurt. Its cold, its dairy, it simply had to work.

one cup hot coffee
two spoonfuls of yogurt cream
stir like you've never stirred before and enjoy!

upon finishing the second cup, I noticed that the last few sips are a sort of coffee-yogurt sludge. While it doesn't taste bad, it doesn't go down that easily either. I think its a texture thing.
