This is Wednesday night. Sandwiches are made and in the fridge, fruit washed and ready, plus a few cookies, just a bit of salad to prepare and we are all set for election day. Our Returning Office phoned us this afternoon and will do so again at 7 a.m. in the morning just to be sure nothing is stopping us from turning up. We have to be at the station at 8 a.m. and will probably not leave til 9 p.m. We don’t try for the more senior jobs as we don’t wish to be involved in counting votes and possibly having to stay quite a bit later, especially if there is a problem.
The weather was absolutely delightful today, we sat out on our balcony in the sun for a while and it was really quite hot. It is supposed to be the same tomorrow so we may get a good turnout at the polls.
Not sure if I have ever given a recipe for our champagne cocktails. The picture looks like it could be the same, but the basics are there.
In a glass put:
1/2 shot of brandy
1 cube or 1 tsp sugar
Twist of orange peel (no zest)
Fill up with champagne.
Drink with caution. They are pretty lethal.
Of course there a dozens of recipes for champagne cocktails but this is what we always serve on Christmas morning for brunch. My family tradition was always just champagne, but Matt is not that keen on straight champagne so he changed the tradition to cocktails.
That’s it for today, and if you live in Ontario, don’t forget to vote. Have a great day.
