Tom has been building us a deck on the back of the house, and although it isn't quite finished, we've enjoyed sitting out there on balmy evenings (unlike the recent cold ones-brr!) to have dinner or dessert or just relax.
About that whiskey cream sauce: it was fabulous. I tried a teeny tiny bit of the whiskey before making the sauce, as I always like to sample my culinary alcohol, and I was in for a big surprise. I thought my lips were on fire, and my skin nearly turned inside out, not to mention the fireworks going off in my head. I had a new respect for the cowboys in old movies who downed a shot glass of the stuff. What did they have, cast-iron stomachs? After the taste test, I was initially skeptical, but it translated into a delicious creamy sauce! (Recipe from Pioneer Woman's Cookbook!)
