and I'll Cry if I Want To.

So, I needed a drink. My birthday sucked, and I want booze. I based this off of a drink they have at Outback called Captain's Mai Tai. Well, I didn't have any huckleberry or any pineapple, so I improvised.

It's My Party and I'll Cry if I Want To (Makes 2 16oz drinks)

2oz Grenadine
4oz Captain Morgan's Spiced Rum
4oz Grape Juice
6oz Orange Juice

I like to keep my liquor in the freezer to keep it at it's coldest and about ten minutes before I make mixed drinks, I put the juices in the freezer also and then just stir them together in a large mug or a pitcher (also stored in the freezer). If I'm in a hurry, I'll shake with ice and then strain into icy glasses.

No Chicken and Dumplings (Serves about 4)

6 cups of veggie or chicken stock (I was out, so I used bullion in the same amount of water)
2 cups of roughly chopped mushrooms
1.5 cups of chopped carrots
.5 cup of frozen corn
4tbsp butter
2tbsp flour
4 uncooked refrigerator biscuits (I only had a can of eight, so I just baked off the remaining four)
1tbsp Celery Seed
1tbsp Garlic Powder
1tbsp Onion Powder

Get your stock boiling with the carrots and seasonings and then in a small frying pan, saute your mushrooms the butter until golden brown.

Sprinkle the flour on the mushrooms and stir, letting cook for a minute more before adding to the soup pot and stirring to dissolve the buttery floury mess.  Add frozen corn.

Cut your biscuits into pieces. I usually cut two into halves and then two into quarters so there's a few different sizes. Add them to the soup and then cover, on medium high. After about five minutes the biscuits will sink, so get in there with a spoon and stir to make sure they don't stick. Lower the heat to a simmer and cook until the broth is just a little thick.

Serve with crackers or the leftover cooked biscuits, if you have any.

If you wanted, you could also add diced or shredded baked chicken.

My birthday sucked too, but the drink mix sounded delish! Hope your weekend gets better.
