I'm Baaack!

Missed me?  Yes, I've been away from the blog for a while - I've missed Recipe Mondays for the past two weeks.  The Brave Astronaut and the clan had a great Christmas season and I hope you had the same.  2015 has gotten off to a good start - though I was sick for awhile, including a sinus infection and then a bad reaction to the anti-biotics I was on.

This past Saturday, Mrs. BA and I went to an Anniversary Gala at the American Legion here in town - it was a grand affair and we had a great time.  This Saturday will be Casino Night at LBA and SoBA's school, where I will be tending bar.  It's an eighties theme and I am making four signature cocktails for the evening.  One is a distinctly eighties drink and the other three are ones that I found on the Internet with eighties-themed titles.
