The weather here in Minnesota is nothing if not exasperating.Today there was a tornado close to our friends' house (luckily they are okay, but at least 1 person died). This disturbing, violent spring weather comes on the heels of a long, snowy, cold, snowy winter (did I mention snowy?).
But even though the days may be stormy, there is always an oasis waiting in the liquor cabinet. Recently I tried something new--Applejack. I still don't know what it is, really, but that didn't stop me from mixing it with orange juice, lime juice, and Grand Marnier for a tasty drink. A couple of these and the edge is gone; I can sit on the front porch and laugh at the rain. (And curse the weeds in my yard. Why can't my tomatoes grow that fast?)
