I drink your milkshake! I drink it up!

Vincent Vega: Did you just order a five dollar shake?
Mrs. Mia Wallace: Ummhh.
Vincent Vega: That's a shake . . . that's milk and ice cream.
Mrs. Mia Wallace: Last I heard.
Vincent Vega: That's five dollars? You don't put bourbon in it or nothin'?
Buddy Holly: No.
Vincent Vega: Just checking.

Pulp Fiction

And you can thank the brilliant "There Will Be Blood," for the title on this particular blog entry. Like Pulp Fiction, it's a dark movie but certainly well acted - but unlike Tarantino's famous flick, there's little humor to be found in "Blood."

On to happier topics...Guess what today is??! National Vanilla Milkshake Day. And guess what I'll be drinking once I get home? Oh you betcha. I love me some milkshakes - especially on a hot day.

For all of you who want to make a low-cal version, rather than buying a fatty one from the local DQ, here is my own healthy variation of a Paula Deen recipe.

AT's Low-Cal Vanilla Milkshake
4 cups sugar-free vanilla ice cream
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
4 packets Splenda (add or subtract amount based on personal sweetness preference)
2 cups skim milk, less for thicker milkshakes
Using a blender, mix all ingredients together until smooth.

Oh and P.S. Tomorrow is National Peaches and Cream Day. And Sunday? It's National Chocolate Eclair Day. Happy eating y'all!

Finally, for a Friday ha-ha, here is a clip from Ugly Betty featuring one of the character's doing a rather entertaining version of "Milkshake" by Kelis. Enjoy!
