Frozen Rum Runner Cocktails

A lot of people get this idea that “food blogging” is so fun (that is, once they google food blogging, because the rest of the world still thinks it’s just a really weird fad, like bronies – which is NWS if you go to google that too, but with instagram). We are all always out at the hottest new restaurant wining and dining our booties off with them there fancy cameras.

Reality check.

It’s Friday night and I just mixed my own cocktail after working over time this week at my full time salary-based job. I am eating leftover ribs with my bare hands out of tupperware because one rack of ribs wouldn’t have taken pretty enough pictures so here we are, on night three of leftovers. But, damn, they are pretty good.
My kitchen sink is overflowing from last nights set that didn’t go according to plan and there’s that pound of pasta that I am going to work on next so that I can retry the same recipe again next week with a few tweaks.
In between it all, when things get really bad and we simply can’t eat another rib? You guessed it. An all American lazy night of pizza in my pajamas.

And here I am on a beautiful Friday evening with amazing weather sitting outside staring at 27 photos of crab cakes trying to figure out which one is tantalizing enough for the site and what the heck I am going to say about them that really makes you understand that they were the. best. crab. cakes. ever. and to get you to want to taste test them yourself (no, seriously, you should).

So, in short, I’m pretty lame on a Friday night. But at least I’m a cheap date ;)

I hope your Friday night is looking a lot more wild and crazy than mine! And if not, I hope it’s just the relaxation you needed to kick off the weekend.

  1. These are way too cute with those mini umbrellas! Definitely hoping a glass appears before me today ;)

  2. bahaha Food bloggers lead such glamorous lives! I totally want one of these tonight.

  3. Well that sums up my life pretty well haha. Minus the full time job thing but that’s definitely how I felt while in grad school full time, especially since I was in the lab nearly 7 days a week. But even now with my part time job I find it difficult to keep up sometimes. IDK how I managed it while in grad school! But either way, we could all use one of these cocktails.

  4. Oh that was great to read. I wa too tired to cook dinner after baking all day, so we ordered pizza the other night. Ya, I get it.

    And I have very fond memories of 151…on my 21st birthday. And that’s all I remember..lol

  5. You are cracking me up. #foodbloggerproblems! This cocktail looks FAB. Happy to see you are still holding onto summer (me too – but with ice cream!).

  6. Wow. Kita, you just described MY Friday night. Yes, the glamorous job of food blogging. :-) This drink looks fabulous by the way. It’s drinks like these that get food bloggers THROUGH Friday nights! Hahahaha!
