I’m officially on vacation! Having a quick mimosa at o’hare and it’s off to Puerto Rico and then to 5 other Caribbean islands via cruise ship. Please pray I don’t have to use plastic bags to use the bathroom.
Have a great rest of the week!
Today in important cheeseburger news.
The Bee’s Knees cocktail
- three lemons
- one ounce local honey
- two ounces Hendrick’s gin
- one cup ice
- one orange
First, you’ll create a simple syrup with the honey. Combine equal parts honey and boiling water. Stir well. Jar and refrigerate the syrup. In a cocktail shaker filled with ice, combine one ounce freshly squeezed lemon juice, one ounce of your honey simple syrup, and two ounces of gin. Shake well and strain into a glass of fresh ice. Garnish with one orange wedge.

John Krasinski from “The Office” lip synced the classics in a great segment on Jimmy Fallon’s show last night.
In case you missed it last night.
This is fantastic. Watch it. I want to have a lip sync off.
This made my Wednesday morning significantly better.

JUST GIVE ME ONE ALREADY!
"Cakes have gotten a bad rap. People equate virtue with turning down dessert. There is always one person at the table who holds up her hand when I serve the cake. No, really, I couldn’t she says, and then gives her flat stomach a conspiratorial little pat. Everyone who is pressing a fork into that first tender layer looks at the person who declined the plate, and they all think, That person is better than I am. That person has discipline. But that isn’t a person with discipline; that is a person who has completely lost touch with joy. A slice of cake never made anybody fat. You don’t eat the whole cake. You don’t eat a cake every day of your life. You take the cake when it is offered because the cake is delicious. You have a slice of cake and what it reminds you of is someplace that’s safe, uncomplicated, without stress. A cake is a party, a birthday, a wedding. A cake is what’s served on the happiest days of your life. This is a story of how my life was saved by cake, so, of course, if sides are to be taken, I will always take the side of cake."-
