I've been kinda MIA for a little bit here... I was fighting bronchitis & asthma... and immediately fell into a week of birthdays, doctor appointments and Easter! It took me a bit to catch my breath... but I'm back! =)

Here's a quick one for you!

I am totally there with ya on the Olives and Cornichons though, sometimes, I sneak in a pickled bean, if I can find them... What's with the Celery anyway? LOL

Glad you're doing better. I noticed you were a bit quiet over here. :)

This looks great. I LOVE Bloody Mary's.

That is a serious drink! I've never had a bloody mary before but then again, I like my drinks fruity and sweet. Hope you're feeling better!

This looks delicious! I was just talking to friends the other night about bloody mary's and local places which have bloody mary bars. This is definitely one I'd love to try!
