...from gin to vodka, that is, for martini-making.
OK, it seemed time for a change from all this talk of good-for-you locally grown foods. I'll write about our Dark Days Challenge meals tomorrow. But, tonight, the featured item is a martini made with Hangar One Vodka - very cold, very dry, with a twist of lemon. Mmmm! I've always been a gin martini girl myself. But, this is pretty darn good. When we were in Alameda, Ca. for Christmas, we visited the Hangar One Distillery, did some tasting and this was my personal favorite for a souvenir to bring home. (Grady chose the ice wine.) It makes a very fine martini. A nice break from the roasting and pureeing of squash to make a soup for dinner.
My friend, Judi, sent a link for something called Vote Chooser. If you are in one of the Super Tuesday states and still having difficulty deciding which way to go, this could help you get started. Not really, but it is kind of fun to check out. Meanwhile, I'm just wondering if this will be the first time that the decisions will not all be made by the time we have our Oregon primary in May. We can always hope.
