I badly over ate on new year night. Its not how I planned it but things happened. It all ran like a movie in my head how I pushed that extra piece of chocolate cake even when I was full to the brim. Or leftover eating the next day. It's not something I'm proud of but it was chocolate cake with coffee cream and leftover pizza?
In an effort to calm my upset stomach, I headed to make lemonade. And when I peeked into the fridge I realized I was out of lemons.This is the time when all hell breaks loose, I would call M and say funny things, like " What the hell is your problem, why didn't you pick up the call in first ring" , or " You haven't bought a gift for me in dog years!". Poor guy, now he pretty much understands my swings are mostly food related, also why he lets me stuff my pantry with things of all kind!
Lucky M though, we had some tangerine on hand and I went about my business without bothering him making a Indian style tangerine lemonade. I wonder what took me so long, why I didn't do this before! It is our new favorite drink, one I have been making almost every other day since tangerine is so flooding the market right now. I'm sure you can make it like a cocktail as well or just add soda for a fuzzy drink.
