Me and Major Peters

I first met Major Peters during our vacation in Florida in December.  I met him in the refrigerator.  He was sitting on the bottom shelf in the door.  I took him out and fell in love with him shortly thereafter.  I spent time with him every day of our two-week vacation.

I'm back home now.  Although I'm a happily married woman, I don't think I'll ever be able to live without him.  That's because my Major Peters is hot and spicy!

Okay, okay, enough already!  It's time to come clean.  Major Peters is a bloody Mary mix.  With a glass of this mix and a shot of vodka, I'm good to go anywhere and do anything, except drive.  After work, instead of enjoying a glass of wine, I fix myself my new favorite drink. 

Making meals when I get home is a whole different experience.  I actually ENJOY being in the kitchen!!  I'm getting adventurous, trying new recipes and resurrecting the old.  My husband and son don't know what to make of me lately.  Sure I stagger a bit when I bring food to the table, but the meals are absolutely fabulous.  Just ask me and I'll tell you. :)

Just so you know, Major Peters Bloody Mary Mix is available in three varieties:  Original, Hot & Spicy and The Works.  I've moved on from the Hot & Spicy to The Works.  It's officially my current favorite.  I love it because it packs a punch with every sip and swallow.  I'm buying it by the gallon!

Of course, the name Major Peters on the label assures me that we're destined to be together.

P.S.  If you liked this, scroll down for more about silly Shaddy.  If you weren't at all impressed, never mind.

That's the way it goes. You start out with the easy stuff and before you now it, WHAM! You're hooked. From then on, it's all downhill as you need more and more kick outta it. Now you're all the way to The Works. I see an intervention in your future....

GULLY: Thanks for the warning. I'll keep an eye on myself. It all started back in November with NaNoWriMo and the wine; I feared exactly this. :)

ANNIE: Cheers, Annie!!

Sorry about that "before you NOW it." Getting used to a different keyboard isn't as easy at one might think. Ya know?

Cheryl aka Shaddy said...

GULLY: Yeah, I know. Not to worry cuz I "knew" you meant "know." New computer?

Oh dear. I love Major PETERS already, and I don't even know him. Yet. Did you say spicy?????? Ohhhhh, yes pleaseeeeeeee. That should cure what ails me this weekend in a big, good way, right?

Hugs for a wonderful Saturday night with the Major. Don't think for a second that I haven't already sent Russ to the liquor store....I have! Thank you!

HA HA HA. I'm gonna have to follow the Chef Shaddy route to food success!

At least with your method, no one will care what is actually on the plate!
