and I'll Cry if I Want To.

So, I needed a drink. My birthday sucked, and I want booze. I based this off of a drink they have at Outback called Captain's Mai Tai. Well, I didn't have any huckleberry or any pineapple, so I improvised.

It's My Party and I'll Cry if I Want To (Makes 2 16oz drinks)

2oz Grenadine
4oz Captain Morgan's Spiced Rum
4oz Grape Juice
6oz Orange Juice

I like to keep my liquor in the freezer to keep it at it's coldest and about ten minutes before I make mixed drinks, I put the juices in the freezer also and then just stir them together in a large mug or a pitcher (also stored in the freezer). If I'm in a hurry, I'll shake with ice and then strain into icy glasses.

No Chicken and Dumplings (Serves about 4)

6 cups of veggie or chicken stock (I was out, so I used bullion in the same amount of water)
2 cups of roughly chopped mushrooms
1.5 cups of chopped carrots
.5 cup of frozen corn
4tbsp butter
2tbsp flour
4 uncooked refrigerator biscuits (I only had a can of eight, so I just baked off the remaining four)
1tbsp Celery Seed
1tbsp Garlic Powder
1tbsp Onion Powder

Get your stock boiling with the carrots and seasonings and then in a small frying pan, saute your mushrooms the butter until golden brown.

Sprinkle the flour on the mushrooms and stir, letting cook for a minute more before adding to the soup pot and stirring to dissolve the buttery floury mess.  Add frozen corn.

Cut your biscuits into pieces. I usually cut two into halves and then two into quarters so there's a few different sizes. Add them to the soup and then cover, on medium high. After about five minutes the biscuits will sink, so get in there with a spoon and stir to make sure they don't stick. Lower the heat to a simmer and cook until the broth is just a little thick.

Serve with crackers or the leftover cooked biscuits, if you have any.

If you wanted, you could also add diced or shredded baked chicken.
