Double Chocolate Porter Bourbon Float
AKA Sex Panther Float

Adapted from The Rising Spoon

Makes 2 floats

  • Porter or stout beer(I used San Tan Brewery's Sex Panther. Breckenridge's Vanilla Porter, or Samuel Smith's Organic Chocolate Stout would be great also.)
  • Vanilla ice cream
  • 1/2 oz whiskey or bourbon

Put two scoops of ice cream in each frosted mug. Pour half the porter in each glass, and drizzle a bit of bourbon over the top. Enjoy with a spoon and straw unless you want ice cream all over your face.

This episode includes an unexpected visitor bearing cupcakes (you won't believe who it is!). We virtually peek inside our closets and share our go-to pieces and accessories. Erica loves these chambray shirts and these skinny jeans. She gives her closet a grade a la Sherry from Young House Love to determine what stays and what goes. Kelsey desperately wants to rock a blazer and a statement necklace.

We're also talking organization and productivity on this episode. How do you meal plan and grocery shop? Inquiring minds need to know. Erica has a specific plan of attack that's working for her right now, and Kelsey's winging it with some basic rules but is always on the hunt for the perfect system. She wrote about it herehere, and here on her blog. We're also sharing all of our tricks for staying motivated and productive at work.  Banjo music is one of them.

Great reads and great finds always top our list of current obsessions. Erica talks about her Best of 2013 Nightstand Reviews. Kelsey is reading The Best Food Writing of 2013The Creative Habit, and is obsessed with the British spelling of yogurt in The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry.

Kelsey's current obsession is the super cute kids' CD Here Come the ABC's by They Might Be Giants, and Erica is watching unhealthy amounts of Dance Moms and Sister Wives.

We'd love to connect with you! Comment below and tell us about what you do to meal plan, stay productive, or ward off stray felines. Weigh in on sister wife fashion and whether it's a yard, rummage, garage or tag sale.

We also check in on our New Year's resolutions/goals and discuss Mission Hot Mom and Operation Hide the Bike.

In an act of comaraderie and brutal honesty, we peek inside our makeup bags and divulge our morning beauty routines or lack thereof. Kelsey wants to amp up her routine, and Erica feels very passionate about this topic in part thanks to the Makeup Geek.

Later 2013, Hello 2014 Later 2013, Hello 2014 Wed, 29 Jan 2014 02:59:00 GMT 39:46 b0dc75ffc96c72ed9adb0a99a6b2c15e no https://shows.pippa.io/57f5409b938203d57a43285d/57f542cb35dd195f1fb4d138 Not only do we reference Gepetto's workshop but you also get to hear both of us do our best electric saw impressions. Are you pressing play yet?

On the show we're sipping Pirate's Champagne (recipe below), talking about the best of 2013 and looking ahead to 2014. We also compare notes on beating the post-Christmas blues; Kelsey has the Crackling Fireplaceon her TV and it's keeping her cozy (but not very warm).

In neighborhood news there's lots of sawing going on...do you guys have suggestions of what we should do about a noisy neighbor?

Speaking of current obsessions, Kelsey's obsessed with a recipe for Christmas Quiche (below) and Erica's in love with her Kindle Paperwhite (thanks, Santa!).
