A tasty treat... Lake style

There isn't too much that beats time at the lakes especially when good food, good drinks, and good company are involved. So instead of doing the responsible thing like homework or working I high tailed out to Detroit Lakes, MN to hang out with some of my favorite people. Labor day weekend in the mid west is kind of like the last hoorah for summer. The picture to the left was taken at the lake I was staying at. The weather was not the most cooperative, with highs being in the mid sixties. Not to fret we made the most, caught some tennis, and relaxed in good company. With some extra time and a hankerin' for ice cream we got creative and made a new drink. This new drink I feel could be a great one for the upcoming fall/winter when you are getting a craving on a chilly day... or just if it sounds appealing.
The recipe
  • Vanilla Ice Cream
  • Hot Chocolate Mixers
  • Vanilla Vodka

Mix each to you liking! I will tell ya its hard to go wrong. Kudos goes out to Katie for coming up with this tasty treat. Now we just need to come up with a name : )

Healthcare reform made simple?!

I think that we all agree, whether you are for or against the healthcare reform, that nobody knows what is actually entails. Today in class our professor presented this video in class. I found it informative and engaging. It breaks the reform law in to its different components and explains in simplistic terms what is in it (without the bias). We have all had enough of the BS Washington has been spewing at us the past year. It was refreshing to hear what I (an American) am in for... Hope you enjoy the youtoons!!
