    We’ve got some bottled spirits… What can one do with an inherited bottle of Banana liquor – I keep thinking I might put it over ice cream but, well out of sight is out of mind. 😉

      Banana liquor in a smoothie might be good, but then it might not. You could donate it to a fundraiser to be either poured at the party or auctioned off? I recently disposed of a couple of bottles of wine for the cat shelter annual fundraiser. I bought the wine but don’t drink it. Figure that one out…

        For company… just in case? I know folks who for (they say their health; one beer or one glass of wine daily) belong to wine and beer of the month clubs. But then I just also read that drinking coffee at least two cups a day (without sugar and cream… sorry I need some milk and stivia sweetener and my primary is decaf which isn’t as good…) is helpful to ward of diabetes.

          You never know what’s going to be harmful/healthy for you. It depends on who is funding the studies that proclaim it…

            One day eggs are good the next not so much, then wait a week and they are OK again. :p
