Let’s face it. Thanksgiving is NEXT week. Even though I’m not cooking this year (yay! we’ve been invited to TWO, yes TWO Thanksgiving parties), I’m still stressing out. I’m already feeling overwhelmed about our Christmas menu, New Year’s Eve plans (or lack thereof), and the start of a brand new year.
Rather than let my brain go bonkers, when freakout moments strike, I head for the kitchen and make Alex and I these giant servings of boozy maple ice cream root beer floats. As a child, root beer floats took me to my happy place. Years later, root beer with ice cream still does the trick.
