Friday Night Dates : Punch Drunk Love

I'm inviting romance into my life
one Friday Night Date at a time
and documenting each one here on my little ol' blog.

I want to remember every detail
of these splendid home spun dates.

Punch Drunk Love


We are back in business, people!
Friday Night Date is back
and not a moment to soon.
The mister and I missed it so much.

We watched the film Punch Drunk Love.
This film is so awkward and sweet,
sometimes it's hard to watch
and then a moment later
it's just so touching and almost classic.

Here are the recipes...
Glutenista Maui Sunrise:
Gluten-Free Vodka
Orange Juice
Splash of Cream

Ambrosia Macaroons
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature
3/4 cup sugar
1/8 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons finely grated orange peel
3 large eggs
24 ounces sweetened flaked coconut (about 6 cups firmly packed)
6 ounces bittersweet chocolate, melted

Position rack in center of oven; preheat to 325°F. Line 3 large rimmed baking sheets with parchment. Using electric mixer, beat butter in large bowl until smooth. Add sugar and salt; beat until blended. Beat in orange peel, then eggs, 1 at a time. Mix in coconut. Drop batter onto sheets by tablespoonfuls, spacing 1 1/2 inches apart.

Bake macaroons, 1 sheet at a time, until golden on bottom and browned in spots, 25 to 30 minutes. Cool completely on sheets.

Using fork, drizzle chocolate over macaroons. Chill on sheets until chocolate is firm, about 30 minutes.

Looks like a fun date! I want to see that movie too.

That movie was a bit of a departure for Adam Sandler, as I recall. I've never seen it, but I did hear better things about this one than usual.

(My brother-in-law is frequently his production designer, and my sister is usually not that into the movies.)
