Brown Bagging It Today!

If you don't care where I'm going or where I've been then scroll to the bottom for an awesome homemade cocktail sauce!

Come Saturday, I am going to be chilling out  here!


For how long? Well, for 21 ziploc bags worth of dog food = 63 cups of food = 7 days


'Cuz this little guy is going to his own pet resort while Tucker the Lhasa Apso goes to my parents.


Now, on to show you some overdue 20 year high school reunion pictures in NY a couple of weeks ago. I haven't posted pics of myself in quite some time so it was about time as well. 


One of my favorite people from high school ~ Frankie (that's me on the left)


Good friends, especially the one next to me. We were BFF's in 8th grade.



Great times were had by all!!! Not bad when everyone tells you so adamantly that "OH MY GOSH, YOU TOTALLY LOOK THE SAME."

Now on to the saucy stuff:

COCKTAIL SAUCE

2 tblsp ketchup
1/2 tsp lemon juice
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp horseradish
3-4 drops tabasco
1/4 tsp worcestershire

Mix it all up & serve with shrimp! 

Have a great weekend everyone!

You looked fabulous for your reunion. And, isn't that what it's all about? Not-so-fat Fridays pay off!

BTW, made the lettuce wraps this week. They were great! Will make them again soon. I brought the leftovers for lunch and Jason knew exactly what they were and where I got the recipe from. :)

Kiera said...

Did I just spell dessert? As in sweet treats? Wow, now you know where my mind is. Ha! I meant desert. The warm dry climate that I live in. Oh boy, it must be late. :)

You look really, really good Steph! Oh my gosh! I am so happy for you. Tan and perfect. I have been doing so terribly with eating lately. I am depressed about it. These pictures of yours inspired me tonight. I am getting back on the wagon again right this second. I am glad you had a great time at your reunion! I am also glad you get to go on vacation. That will be wonderful!
