@David: ...in fact i saw a recipe recently for Green Eggs and Ham...

About 12 years ago my mom and little bro' came over at Christmas for a visit. I had a friend with an Emu farm so I'd gotten an Emu Egg -- which is about the size of an Ostrich egg (like 8" across) -- I don't know if they are all this color, but the one I had was emerald green (the shell -- not the contents).
So I got a bottle of Dom Perignon champagne, and some ham, and on Christmas morning we started the day with "Green Eggs & Ham & Champagne"

Daiquiri Icecream

@Karen....your post about icecream reminds me of a staple of South African restaurants - the "Don Pedro".  This consists of Icecream mixed with whisky, brandy or (preferably)  a sweet liqueur - you can use pretty well anything that's to hand - usually served in a wine glass.   It's also made at parties where it is usually mixed in a bucket using a couple of tubs of icecream and a bottle or two of liqueur.  It is then called "Hooligan Juice" because of the likely effects.

A friend of mine from the UK was once in Johannesburg with his late teens daughter and we chanced to meet.  We went to a nearby restaurant and after the meal I ordered a Don Pedro.  "What's a Don Pedro?" she asked.  "It's also called Hooligan Juice.... " I started to explain, but she cut me off.  "I'LL HAVE ONE!"

@Max...in fact i saw a recipe recently for Green Eggs and Ham.  It was a sort of pie type thing with eggs, bacon (so you'd approve :-) and spinach for the green.  It did look pretty tasty.....

@betajet  "The bartender replied: "That's a hickory daiquiri, Doc."

Groan....I thought surely you were heading down a path leading directly to pencil shavings. :-)

Speaking of daiquiris and nutmeg, here's another one from the Old Jokes Home:

Once there was a doctor who always stopped by a bar for a daiquiri on the way home.  The bartender got used to this regular customer so when he saw the doctor coming down the sidewalk, he'd quickly make a daiquiri the way the doctor liked it -- with a sprinkling of nutmeg.  That way the drink would be ready when the doctor came in the door.

One day the bartender saw the doctor coming and started to make the usual daiquiri, but discovered he was out of nutmeg.  In a panic, he looked for something he could substitute.  The best he could find were some hickory nuts, so he ground them up and sprinkled them on the daiquiri, hoping for the best.

The doctor tasted the concoction, considered it for a moment and said: "This daiquiri is very good, but there seems to be something different."

The bartender replied: "That's a hickory daiquiri, Doc."

@kfield: Just exactly what are you trying to imply, mister?

Only that you are the most wonderful boss a young boy like myself could ever dream about working for -- the radience of your smile (which brightens by the Daiquiri) lightens my day :-)

@kfield: I went along fine until I got to the letter "D" and had the "Daiquiri" ice cream. Quite the most horrid thing I'd ever tasted!

It gets better after the 10th bowl :-)
