Friday 5

Hello, welcome to this weeks Friday 5, Saving.

  1. When dining out, do you usually save room for dessert? Not unless I’m at Cheesecake Cafe. Even then I get the cheesecake to go.
  2. How do you feel about saving places in line or saving seats in theaters? Fine.
  3. What’s one thing you did to save money this past year? Not much.
  4. Besides money, what’s something you’re saving for later? A nice bottle of wine.
  5. In what way did you recently save the best for last? Probably chocolates.

Thanks for participating, and have a wonderful weekend and a happy new year! What? 2011?!


Mmm is for Margarita

What’s better than a margarita and cheesecake? Margarita cheesecake! I was looking for an easy cheesecake recipe and came across this one. I decided to give it a tweak and add tequila as well as lime cordial instead of frozen margarita concentrate.

The recipe calls for 1/3 cup of thawed margarita concentrate lime cordial, but I decided to add 1/2 cup of the lime cordial with some tequila to round it out and give it that extra limey flavor. Plus I used a spring form pan instead of a pre baked crust.

The cheesecake turned out perfectly without any cracks upon settling. It’s creamy, sweet, rich and delicious and has just a hint of tequila. Mmm.

Friday 5

This week’s Friday 5, Finale, are in honor of a certain award-winning American TV series finally coming to its quirky conclusion (this week and next, I think). What? You thought finale meant the bowing-out of Friday 5? Ha! In your dreams! Friday 5 cannot hope to be stopped; it can only hope to be delayed a few hours, as with this week’s questions!

  1. What television series finale did you particularly enjoy? I think Frasier left with a great ending.
  2. What television series finale did you think was a disservice to the series as a whole? Roseanne. Great show, horrible ending.
  3. What is your favorite dessert? Cheesecake!
  4. What were the circumstances surrounding your most dramatic exit from a room? Probably a fight, yelling, screaming, stomping away?
  5. If you could choose any symbolic way to end 2009, how would you end it? Going to bed early. It’s been a shitty year all around, and ending it early would be nice.

Thanks for participating, and have a wonderful weekfinale!
