Alltop, confirmation that I kick ass

HAPPY FRIDAY MAMMAKAZES! I don’t know about you but I’m feeling TROPICAL. Must be the sweltering heat wave that has kept us cooped up in the darkest corner of the family room – the one right under the air conditioning vent.

To recap this week, here are some of the ways I, as a mother, BLUNDERED:


* I let my kid see a movie that I knew would probably emotionally traumatize her.

* I grounded my kid from treats and then caved-in the very next day.

* I forgot to re-apply sunscreen and she got a WAY too much sun on her shoulders.

* I let her go without a bath two days in a row… AFTER being in the pool!


Not bad in the grand scheme of things. Right? It’s not like I left her home alone to fend for herself while I was out scoring meth or something. Still…I could use a cocktail. Something, shall we say, TROPICAL?




2 1/2 cups  Chopped fresh or frozen (not thawed) strawberries (about 12 ounces)
3 tbs            Sugar
2 tbs            Lime juice
3 cups          Ice cubes
3/4 cup        Coconut-flavored rum, such as Malibu


Combine strawberries, sugar and lime juice together in a blender. Blend until smooth. Add ice cubes and rum and blend until frothy. Transfer mixture to a pitcher and serve. Makes 6 servings.

To keep it cool in warmer weather, FREEZE fresh berries for 30 minutes before blending.  

Variation: For a nonalcoholic version, omit the rum and add 1/2 cup additional strawberries.


Remember…don’t feel guilt and drive.
