LATER that same day....and KATE and JIM c'mon over!

If life gives you lemons (say a UTI) make lemonade (the cure being cranberry juice!)and after 5, add some vodka, a most healthful drink.
The cape codder!!!!

1 1/2 oz vodka
3 oz cranberry juice
1 lime wedge

Pour Vodka and Cranberry Juice into a highball glass over ice. Stir well, add the wedge of lime, and serve.

Funny story about cape codders. A couple of summers ago a sister-in-law was visiting, and I was helping out at a gallery till 6:30, and the wife sez she'll try baking some new pizza recipe.
I get home, most hungry, and she is busy doing sisterly stuff with her sister (I am the usual chef in the house) and there is NO PIZZA.

There was a scramble in the kitchen and the wife set to it and we ate at about 9 pm....
meanwhile, me and the sister-in-law opened the vodka and cranberry juice, found the ice and limes, and after sharing 2 or 4 (or was it more?) drinkie poos, we didn't really
a) care
b) feel all that hungry

Glad you are feeling better. have fun.
