Foodie Friday #20 - Most Clicked + Cocktail Challenge


A busy week it has been...so busy that E just reminded me about Foodie Friday!  I am so sorry to be late (again) but I have big plans to make it right for next week.  Next week Foodie Friday will be celebrating its 21st birthday....do you know what that means??  Legal drinking age, baby....oh, and it can vote!  But on with the drinking part - next weeks features will be based on those delicious beverages that have popped up every week since we began.  Currently our cocktail links are few and far between so I challenge you to link one up this week!!  That way we will have a nice list for next week that can be bookmarked for your next big shin dig.

On to the most clicked of the week...


Homemade Slushies - Linda's Lunacy.  With this heat wave still in effect it is no big surprise that these slushies made first place BY A LANDSLIDE!  These remind me of the Italian ice we used to eat as kids.  Sweet and tart - LOVE!  With only two ingredients this should be a main stay over the summer but if you aren't feeling the lemon feel free to use any juice!


Sweet and Spicy Sriracha Chicken - Mi Chiamo Candace.  First off - if you don't know what Sriracha is get your but to the store PRONTO and pick some up.  it is relatively inexpensive and will be your hot sauce of choice to add to just about anything.  Tabasco be damned...  Secondly - who doesn't like Sweet and Spicy??  Add a bit of chicken and you got yourself a meal!  I knew this would be a big favorite out there and you proved me right with the second most clicks of the week.  My husband is already asking me to make this...

On to dessert - our Third Place winners are tied:


Homemade Ice Cream Sandwiches - Sugar and Spice in the Land of Balls and Sticks.  This is so easy to make I have no idea why I haven't thought to make it before.  Duh...Cake mix and ice cream.  Easy as pie...I mean  sandwiches!  Supermom even points out that they can be made gluten free and any size you want for the calorie conscious.  I love a meal treat that can be adapted!


Harry Potter Chocolate Frogs - Rae Gun Ramblings.  Yum.  For those of you obsessed with Harry Potter these couldn't come at a better time.  I have never made chocolates myself but thanks to Marissa has showing us I must declare it doesn't look too difficult!  I think I could perform this simple task and use peanut butter as the inside...mmmmm....peanut butter...

That's it for this week.  since I am late I must show you the very reason why most of my time has been consumed with a few glamorous puppy porn shots...  Yes, that's right, he is naked.  Please don't say I didn't warn you...
