Tomatoes, Lightsaber Popsicles and A Cotton Candy Martini

Tomatoes are yummy
Cherry tomatoes and gin rummy
Tomatoes in a crate made of wood
Throwing rotten tomatoes in the hood
A fried green tomato today
A fried green tomato in May
A Bloody Mary without them
Is like the Junior M.A.F.I.A. with no Lil’ Kim
Tomatoes morning, noon and night
A tomato while you fly a kite
Tomatoes on the vine
Travel nicely while you float the Rhine
That is all
Eat a tomato ya’ll

That’s a poem I wrote awhile back.  In case you couldn’t tell from the title…it is about tomatoes.   My cherry tomato plant has three little tomatoes on it and they are growing nicely!  It has been really difficult to not just pull them off and eat them, but they aren’t red yet so I’ll be patient and just stare at them.  While I’m doing that you totally need to watch this video.

I was introduced to a tasty drink last night.  Trust me it is going to sound gross and like it will be way too sweet, but it really is good.  You’ll also feel magical when you pour the liquid on the cotton candy.  Enjoy!

Cotton Candy Martini  (from Colt and

1 ½ ounces vodka
½ ounce x-rated fusion liqueur
1 ounce cranberry juice
Pink cotton candy

Put some cotton candy in a martini glass.  Put the rest of the ingredients in a martini shaker and shake well.  Pour cocktail over the cotton candy, it dissolves instantly so present the glass before pouring so you can show off and stuff.
