There was a Garlic festival at my house….

MojitoSo we had friends over for dinner and a movie – and Frozen Mojitos. I have been nursing my mojito for hours, LOL. It is strong on the Barcardi 151! My husband bought Cocktail Rx Freezer Cocktail mix – Mojito Flavor that comes in a 19.5-Ounce Bucket. Just freeze over night, pour in a glass, add some crushed mint and you have a yummy drink! Except my drink is living on foreverrrrrr……………

For dinner I decided on Shrimp Scampi, bruschetta, Garlic Bread and Crab Cakes with a garlic aoli sauce. So the vampires are staying away tonight!!!

After making more cookies and all the prep work for dinner – I still haven’t finished my drink… I am such a light weight.

AND I have no idea how I made dinner, but everyone Oohed and awed! No, just kidding I didn’t cook tipsy or even drunk, but it was really D-Lish!
