Ahhhhhh……back into a routine again. The second week of school has whizzed by and the pan of back-to-school cookie bars I made so my kids could have some warm just-out-of-the-oven-homemade-we-have-the-most-awesome-mom-cookies….are long gone.
Now that I have a little more free time, I am able to
spend all of my husband’s hard
earned money….erm…..volunteer at our local Thrift Shop a lot more.
(Total score!!! Who in their right mind would donate Polish Pottery! Whoever you are, thank you for supporting the scholarship program!)
Then, I got my new Erin Condren planner yesterday in the mail. It was one of the happiest days of my life. Now I am SURE I will become the organized person I have always wanted to be. (Insert husband’s eye roll here.)
But most of all, the best thing I like about school starting again, is that I have a lot of extra time to cook and bake. I try and make something new almost every night. Sometimes it’s a main dish, sometimes it’s a side. Tonight I am getting all sorts of crazy and making a drink! (Don’t tell anyone but I actually already tried this out yesterday and they are insanely delicious!)
Back To School Cherry Cokes
Printable Recipe (HERE)
-24 oz of coca-cola (real cola…not diet)
-4 Tablespoons grenadine syrup
-Maraschino Cherries for garnish
Optional : Spiced rum for the big kids
First off, put something on the grill. These drinks definitely have a summer grilling picnicky feel to them. I’m making Bacon Wrapped Pineapple ChickenSkewers. Next, pour cola into a big pitcher. Add grenadine. Stir. Serve over lots of ice and garnish with Maraschino cherries.
That’s it! A perfect ending to a busy, productive, and don’t forget organized, school week! Enjoy!
