It's Friday and VGNO!!!!

After a very long week of crawling around my house and enduring severe back pain I can say TGIF because I'm upright and walking again even most of the muscle spasms are gone. Thank God.

I think I deserve a VGNO! Kids are going to bed early and I'm going to sit in lovely peace and quiet. So welcome to the party, grab your drink and do some blog hopping. Sign in over at Ann again and Again's Mr. Linky and say hello to everyone that's playing!

I don't know if I should be drinking while taking Flexeril so I guess I'll stick to a virgin drink tonight. This is what I decided on...........

Chocolate punch

4 oz semisweet chocolate
1/2 cup sugar
2 cups hot water
2 quart milk
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 quart vanilla ice cream
1 quart club soda
1/2 pint heavy whipped cream

In a large saucepan combine the chocolate and sugar with the hot water. Bring to a boil, stirring for 2 mins. Add milk, and continue heating. When hot, beat in vanilla with a rotary egg beater or whisk. Remove from heat. Chill, then pour into a punch bowl over ice cream. For sparkle, add club soda. Top with whipped cream and dust with cinnamon. This will be perfect while making dinner! Tonight's dinner will also be tomorrows cooking 101 lesson, so check back and see what I make.
My music selection for the night is by Train and the song is Hey, Soul Sister. I love this song, it puts me in a better mood!

Everyone have a wonderful weekend and Happy VGNO!
