D-I-V-O-R-C-E... not just a song by Tammy Winette....

So it turns out I'm getting divorced. I've kind of struggled on how this would hit the blog, but I think I've decided to include it after all. For one thing, this seriously hits my ability to act as a test kitchen for my loverly Internet babies that detest cooking - after all, my budget is seriously impacted by all this as my soon-to-be-ex-wife and I work together to set up not one, but TWO households. All of a sudden, I find myself cooking for three (include in that daily lunches) on a foodshoestring.

Right now, my current budget as a brand-spanking-new Single Dad allows $200 per month for groceries. That seems high, but at the same time, I'm just not sure... I'm ashamed to say that I've never paid a lot of attention to what we spend on groceries. We've always just bought what we needed... crying shame that. Makes me realize just how much I've taken it all forgranted.

But anyways, enough about me, here's a recipe.

Cold and Bitter

Yummy divorce inspired coffee. MMMM the sweet smell of sarcasm..... just like mom used to make.

Recipe By: Jake's sleep deprived head
Serving Size: 1
Cuisine: American
Main Ingredient: Coffee


-= Ingredients =-
1/2 ounce Kahlua
1/2 ounce Malibu Coconut Rum
5 drops Baily's Irish Creme
7 ounce Cheap assed, generic, stale coffee

-= Instructions =-
To prepare: Pour equal parts Kahlua and Malibu rum into a shot glass. Add a few drops of Bailey's irish cream. In a tall glass of ice, combine this with 7 ounces of the nastiest, most generic, no-frills-roasted-sixteen-years-ago-no-name-jackass-coffee you can find. Brew it however you like it, and let it sit right up until the oil floats on the top.

Voila - enjoy the fruits of your combined sweetness and negligence.
