Bake ordered a Bloody Mary and to tell you the truth, I have been obsessing about it since!
It is not about the vodka, for me it is the accouterments. The garnishes of olive, peppers, onions, pickles and any variety of them, along with the spice in the tomato juice.
On a personal note, the Bake has a big birthday today; the world is a little bit brighter and we are a little more blessed with him in it, Happy Birthday to the love of my life. Cheers!
