There was a death this week and respect must be paid.
24 is off the air after 8 seasons of heart-pounding drama. I know I'll sleep a little better without the stress, but still, it's sad.
In order to pay homage to Jack "guns don't kill people, Jack does" Bauer, friends that we've been watching all season with came over Monday night for a killer dinner.
One should always start a 24 themed dinner with a lethal champagne cocktail- a favorite of those nuclear-lovin' Russians.
Add 1/2 a shot of apricot brandy to the bottom of the glass. Top with champagne and a drizzle of grenadine. This drink goes a long way in easing the pain of this parting.
*Word to the wise- this ain't for sissies.
Enjoy some Disaster-Area Ranch Dip alongside slices of Deathstar Cucumber and Cherry Grenades. The main course is Car Bomb chili. Recipe forthcoming.
Dry your tears as Jack escapes another brush with death and finish your meal with Blood of a Terrorist Pie.
This was my first whole wheat homemade pie crust and I'm still tinkering with the proportions. Again, recipe forthcoming. This one, however, won good reviews from the Jack Bauer faithful gathered at my house.
What will fill my Monday nights now?
