MARTINI MONDAY – (enjoy the first evening of the week
with a cool cocktail and a easy snack!)


There are a couple days left before the celebration of the year! No not Superbowl!!! New Year’s Eve people. So here is a nice champagne recipe and a delicious little appetizer recipe for you. And if you don’t happen to know the words to the old Scottish song Auld Lang Syne, I’ve included those down below. If you don’t learn them, just blame in on the drunken stupor you’re in. Ta Da! Or just keep kissing your cutie through the song. Whatever works for ya.

Poinsettia Champagne Celebration

 3 oz chilled champagne
1 oz triple sec
3 oz cranberry juice

Stir ingredients together in a champagne glass, and serve.

Spinach and Artichoke Pinwheels


  • 1 10 oz. Package Frozen Chopped Spinach, Thawed
  • 1 14 oz. Can  artichoke hearts, Chopped (Not Marinated)
  • 2/3 C. Parmesan Cheese, Grated
  • 1/2 C. Sour Cream
  • 1 Tbs. Onion, Minced
  • 1 Garlic Clove, Minced
  • Dash of Salt And Pepper
  • 1 17 oz. Package Puff Pastry, Thawed


Drain water off spinach and press out as much as you can with paper towels. Combine spinach, artichoke hearts, Parmesan cheese, sour cream, onion, garlic and salt and pepper and mix well. Spread out the individual sheets of pastry and place an equal measure of the spinach mixture on each sheet. Spread mixture evenly on pastry. Roll up each sheet in a jellyroll shape. Wrap in plastic wrap and chill for several hours. Remove plastic wrap and cut rolls into 1/2″ pieces. Place on a non-stick baking sheet and bake at 400 degrees for about 20 minutes.


Should old acquaintance be forgot,
and never brought to mind ?
Should old acquaintance be forgot,
and old lang syne ?


For auld lang syne, my dear,
for auld lang syne,
we’ll take a cup of kindness yet,
for auld lang syne.

And surely you’ll buy your pint cup !
and surely I’ll buy mine !
And we’ll take a cup o’ kindness yet,
for auld lang syne.


We two have run about the slopes,
and picked the daisies fine ;
But we’ve wandered many a weary foot,
since auld lang syne.


We two have paddled in the stream,
from morning sun till dine ;
But seas between us broad have roared
since auld lang syne.


And there’s a hand my trusty friend !
And give us a hand o’ thine !
And we’ll take a right good-will draught,
for auld lang syne.


Laugh, learn and liven up your taste buds!
