Fab Friday Faves 2.27.15

Happy Friday darlings!  I won't complain about the cold this week... don't get me wrong, it is still awful, but it looks like the end might be in sight.  By the end of next week it is looking like it could be around 9c.  I won't hold my breath but it's something.  This week was still pretty quiet as it was cold, but there was a great Brunch, a trip to the mall and a couple trips to Target.  Oh and into Manhattan for a filming of the Rachael Ray Show.  Next week is my birthday week and for my birthday Nicole and I are going into see a taping of The Chew and then I have a massage booked so it should be a great day!   Everyone have a great weekend and see you next week!

1. This year was one of the first years in memory that the Hudson and East Rivers have froze almost completely.  You may think, it's a river in the Northeast, of course it's going to freeze.  But you have to remember it has a high salinity and constant traffic, it is almost unheard of!  Some of the ferries have even had to be shut down.  This is a picture of the Hudson I snapped when out for a walk the other day.  I wouldn't want to be out on a boat in this!

2.  One of my favorite drinks are Caesars (the Canadian, tastier, version of Bloody Mary's) and as part of my birthday presents, my parents got me a bottle of Dill Pickle Vodka from a great Saskatchewan distillery Last Mountain Distillery.  The Vodka was made specifically with the Caesar in mind, so as soon as I got it back to NJ I had to try it out.  So good!

3. I decided to make Red Beans and Rice with Andouille sausage for the first time because I know Josh loves it when the southern guys bring it in at work.  It turned out so delicious I can't wait to make it again.  Stay tuned for the recipe!

4. On Wednesday when we went to the Rachael Ray show we were very lucky to get some kitchen gadget swag!  We got the Wilton Shot Glass Mold, the Norpro Ravioli Rolling Pin, and Cuisipro Mini Ice Cream Sandwich Maker.  Pretty great swag!  I tried out the Ice Cream Sandwich Makers yesterday and love them!  They turned out so cute and delicious.

5. It has been awhile since I had a picture of my fur babies in my blog, so here they are my Jinx and Smudge <3
