Flash forward to me drinking cranberry infused vodka in the bathtub. While vodka purists may comment on the ice cubes in the glass, upon receiving the bottle, I couldn't wait for it to chill and immedicately poured some over ice to drink straight. I must say that the tartness of the cranberry really offset the vodka flavor. This is a life I can get used to.

Luckily, as my life changed, The Cafe in Ames started carrying a garlic appetizer. Bread, cheese, garlic, some sort of tomato/pepper yumminess and bread! What better way to enjoy then to have a mini buffet of options in the tub. . . with wine.
This is perhaps the most elaborate in the bathtub eating that I have done and I must admit that I lost one garlic clove into the bath water. I am not sure I'll attempt something this complex in the future, but for one, short 30 minutes, this was heaven!

When I go to Okoboji, I pick up these homemade malted milk balls. They are like the malted milk balls you can buy at the store . . . only multiply the goodness times 17. They come in dark and milk chocolate. While normally, I'm an interesting dark chocolate kinda girl, these are irresistable and both must be consumed in equal quantities.
Every person in the world should have this experience. Next time I drive to Okoboji, I offer free delivery!
