We know you all are on your smartphones, checking what’s going on, who is texting, who’s posting what! Christmas and New Year’s, everyone! Who wouldn’t be online?! You might be partying, taking time off blogging or what you do for living, but everyone is taking a look at their phone screen to see if there’s a text from someone or what’s getting posted by the blogger you follow. And here we are, posting what we drank this Christmas, sounds boring as though we have no other distraction to cater to, but this is work ethic! Having an inside laugh. Haha. No, seriously, if you blog passionately, you know you can’t let parties ruin your ethics. And to start with, today is our child’s birthday. Four years ago, our first baby bird was found at our doorstep and she turned four today. So, that’s one more reason we are extra happy! We have an early morning Mass to go to, gotta shut down the computer right after I post this. Then we have our schedule that won’t leave room for even an Instagram posting, forget about blogging an entire post.There goes the busy train! Say, have you watched our recent (and the very first ) YouTube video? See here .
Just two days away from 2018, and we are still not over with Christmastide! Oh Lord! If you are like us you probably hate the idea of people getting drunk and partying, sorry we really are THAT judgemental to never be in the same room with alcohol or alcoholic people. We are just not into it. We believe in a more healthy lifestyle, and no matter how much you argue that you go to the gym or meditate enough….so sorry it won’t work because your system needs to be alcohol free. Like, really? You believe in that shit, that confessing your sins will help if you keep committing the same crimes and go back to the same sick behavior patterns after confession? I sound like a preacher? Well, you need one, and let’s just be less of a hypocrite and feed our bodies something fun and tasty and good.
Christmas is a tradition + emotion for us, like it is for so many of you guys! We have children coming over, or for instance, your children, your parents, friends, who come over to your place and you keep looking for grand ways to make it up to them. Because let’s be honest here, we never seem to have time or situations where we can have fun and talk minus the headaches of work life. Women, mostly, gather round and cook up yummies. But the problem crops up when you have nothing to sip on! Please, no eggnog! We don’t like raw eggs, thank you! Vegan eggnog can be made, I’ve heard it tastes yumm, recipes vary though. But, to be simple and on point, winter celebrations should have milk, fruits, and chocolates.
This drink was made in just few minutes, ask your friends or children to help you out in assembling all the ingredients, put them in the mixer, and whip/blend. You can add chocolate syrup to this if you want, I added it later and forgot to take the pic. I forget to take pictures after making masterpieces. Lol.
- Strawberry Buttercream – 2 spoonfuls (you can make it at home by mixing butter, strawberry jam, few drops of milk and powdered sugar)
- Sliced Black or purple grapes – 20 (for 2 glasses , that will give you the color and the taste. Make it forty grapes for four glasses)
- Sliced or diced Candied fruit or murabba – four spoons ( this will act as sweetener)
Put strawberry butter cream, grapes, dry candied fruit (murabba) in the mixer. Pour in the milk. Blend and Whip. Check with a spoon if everything has blended well. Blend again if you find lumps of fruits at the bottom of the jar.
The dark purple skin of grapes will look like confetti all over the thick milk after blending. Looks beautiful in glassware. You can include almonds too. Before you serve it to others please check that they are not allergic to the ingredients. You can refrigerate and drink later, I’d say you can keep it for two days max. We don’t like food that overstays and sits in the fridge for long, no taking chances.
Thanks for following us, we hope we made your 2017 fun with all the things we blogged about so far. We’ll be blogging tomorrow too, I’ll have to type in real quick while my sis will be busy with the food making. Livvy knows the masalas well, so I won’t bother going to the kitchen. The rest of the work will be mine. And we have serious work to wrap up before midnight, we hope you have an awesome 2018!
Christmas and New Year wishes from both of us! May God be with you and your folks.
