Date Night – Dinner, A Movie and Drinks

My husband is cheap. I mean CHEAP. He squeaks when he walks. If I say honey, why don’t you buy Hanes instead of Great Value, he’ll actually say “squeak squeak squeak”. And I know I’m not the only one married to such a cheapskate thrifty man.

So here today, is your cheap date. Dinner (ok, just the recipe) a Movie (generally supplied by Youtube and less than 4 min long) and Drinks.

Hachacha. Hot time in the town tonight.

Nacho supremo. Start with a bag of Doritos or corn tortilla chips. Spread chips out evenly on a microwave safe plate. Top with a handful of shredded cheddar cheese, and nuke one minute. On top add your ingredients of choice. I recommend ground beef (cooked), crumbled bacon (the already cooked kind if you’re feeling flush, cook it yourself if you’re CHEAP), jalapenos and tomatoes. Some people think this would be a good spot for mushrooms or even black olives, but….ew.



Top that with shredded cheddar cheese. Either microwave 2 min or melt in the broiler part of your oven for a few minutes til melted.
Voila. Supper.



Smart Ass Romance - Bottums Up - Fun Drink RecipesWhile the cheese is melting on your nachos, lets put together a fun little drink called The Salty Chihuahua.
Rub a lime wedge (or even a wet finger!) around the rim of a glass.
Salt the rim.
Fill with ice.
Add in one shot of tequila. (the good stuff, now’s not the time to be cheap!)
Fill with grapefruit juice.
By now the nachos should be done.

Grab a chair, sit back and lets enjoy a few moments of Marco Tempest and his Phone Cam Magic – And ps – Your drink isn’t too strong – it’s the cameraman who’s wobbly on the first one!

Have some Happy Juice – Bottom’s Up!

Smart Ass Romance - Bottums Up - Fun Drink RecipesEveryone needs a little Happy Juice every now and then right? And a Pixy Stick? Do you remember Pixy Sticks? Sure you do…little paper tubes of flavored sugar that left small children climbing the walls at super sonic speed and their mother’s pulling their hair out.

Yeah…THOSE Pixy Sticks.

Today you can relive some of those childhood memories. Y’know, except laced with a touch of alcohol. =) And hopefully not climbing the walls.

Pick up a pack of Pixies (yup, they still make ’em!) and try this recipe on for size.

You’ll love the different flavors you can make.

Happy Juice
Add ice to a short glass
Add 1 shot of vodka
fill to the top with Mountain Dew or Lemonade
Sprinkle a tube of Pixy Sticks over the top and stir.

Absolute Delish.

Bottom’s Up!

Caramel Butterscotch Baileys

Yup, harking back to my bartending days, with a drink that was actually published in Bartender Magazine. Yes, I have been published. And one other time as well when my lovely English Comp professor took my bungee jumping story and submitted it to the ICCC newsletter.

And no, I haven’t included any of those publishing experiences on my queries. Not that desperate. Yet.

Fill a short rocks glass with ice
Add 1 shot caramel baileys
Add 1 shot butterscotch schnapps
Add a splash of milk
Garnish with a cherry

It’s short, it’s sweet, it’s oh-so-goooooooood

enjoy!
