Lounge Cocktail:
June is here. The days are getting longer. We are staying up later. And dragging ass earlier. If you actually read this news letter you would know that we have focused our attention on the morning after and creating as much comfort as possible. And what could create spontaneous comfort faster than a hefty dose of alcohol disguised as a breakfast drink. We present to you the Mimosa. Alcohol's gift to the morning. So rise, shine and cheers.

Lounging With A Video:
Emperors New Groove

I do not care how old you are, if this film does not make you laugyh you should make sure you are not dead. In true form of a "morning after" morning, it is a cartoon. So have a Mimosa amke some Eggs Benny and hang.

David Spade plays the lead as the Emperor and John Goodman plays second lead in a funny film that is a mix of a little Emperors new clothes and even more of the Prince and the Pauper. We really enjoyed this film. There is so much humor you will find yourself hard pressed to pick out any one thing that is predominantly funny. Although "No touchy" has stuck in my head I am sure you will find your own humor.

Miss Congeniality

Sandra Bullock, meeeoow. Playing a sexy clumsy FBI agent whose job is to infiltrate the world of beauty pageant's to uncover a sinister plan to off a contestant. With partner Lou Diamond Phillips and co-stars Murphy Brown, William Shatner and Michael Cain. Spend the three bucks and buy a bottle of wine while your out. This movie is light and funny like a chick movie but has beauty contestants and violence for the guys. Enjoy.

Cooking tip:
Cold Beer, Fresh Veggies

There is nothing more depressing than grabbing a bag of cilantro or parsley from your "vegetable drawer" and it resembles a black bag of goo with yellow liquid. This gift of nature forgotten about and rotting. Out of site, out of mind.

We propose the questions. Why would you put wonderful fresh vegetables and fruit out of site where you will forget about them, in the vegetable drawer? Why put you beer, a condiment you would never forget about, out in the open where anyone could find it?

The answer is not only easy but solves all your problems. Put your fresh vegetables on a shelf where you can see them and put your beer in the vegetable drawer. Now the veggies will come to mind every time you grab a beer and the beer is safe and sound where visitors or uninvited friend's will probably not look. If you think about it Beer is a vegetable. Eat your veggies.

Your welcome.

In medieval England, beer was often served with breakfast.

The B.K. Lounge Grill: Eggs Benedict and Hollandaise Sauce

I always wondered if Eggs Benedict where named after Benedict Arnold or if they have something to do with Benedictine Monks. I still don't know but I love to make this for breakfast, especially if I'm a little under the weather suffering from cocktail flu. Serves 4, just in case.

Hollandaise Sauce

3 egg yolks
1/4 cup water
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1/2 cup firm cold butter, cut into eighths
1/4 teaspoon salt, optional
1/8 teaspoon paprika
Dash ground red pepper

Make Mimosa. Make it a big one so you don't have to make a new one while your cooking.

In small saucepan, beat together egg yolks, water and lemon juice. Cook over very low heat, stirring constantly, until yolk mixture bubbles at edges. Stir in butter, 1 piece at a time, until melted and sauce is thickened. Stir in seasonings. Remove from heat. Cover and chill if not using immediately.

Before you start the actual making of the Eggs Benedict, this would be perfect opportunity to check your Mimosa level and bask in the glamour of what you are about to achieve.

Eggs Benedict

Hollandaise Sauce
8 slices Canadian bacon, the round bacon
4 English muffins
8 eggs
1 Spoonful vinegar

In case you have already had a few mimosas, make the Hollandaise sauce now and let stand. It will not be standing for long.

Fry the bacon and place on a plate until you need it. You will need all of it if you are serving four people, so if you are going to munch make extra. Have some one start splitting and toasting the English muffins halves.

To Poach Eggs: Fill a large saucepan with 3 inches of water. Bring water to a gentle simmer, then add vinegar. Carefully break eggs into simmering water, and allow to cook for 2 1/2 to 3 minutes. Yolks should still be soft in center.

Place both halves of the toasted English muffin, inside up, on a plate. Place a slice of cooked Canadian bacon on each half. Top off with a poached egg and spoon on some Hollandaise sauce. Enjoy with a fresh Mimosa and take a nap. You will feel better when you wake up.


A bride stands to the groom's left at a wedding so that his sword hand would be free. Apparently Anglo-Saxon brides were often kidnapped before a wedding and brawls were common. That's also why the best man stands with the groom; the tribe's best warrior was there to help the groom defend the bride.
