Thirsty Thursday...

Today I am linking up with Kristin from Hopelessly Ever After for Thirsty Thursday... So Welcome!!

This is going to be a Two for One Recipe.... It is a drink and a cake recipe.... 

I have not been able to have one lately so I had to find stock photos of both... 

Harvey Wallbanger 

1 oz of Vodka
1/2 oz of Galliano 
4 oz of Orange Juice 

Pour vodka and orange juice into a collins glass over ice cubes and stir. Float Galliano on top and serve

Harvey Wallbanger Cake 
My dad made these ALL the time as I was growing up... 
Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 45 minutes

Total Time: 1 hour

Yield: 10 to 12 servings


  • Cake:
  • 1 box (about 18.75 ounces) yellow cake mix
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup Galliano liqueur
  • 1/4 cup vodka
  • 1 package (3-ounces) vanilla instant pudding mix
  • 3/4 cup fresh orange juice
  • Glaze:
  • 1 cup sifted powdered sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon fresh orange juice
  • 1 Tablespoon Galliano
  • 1 teaspoon vodka


Preheat oven to 350 F. Grease and flour a Bundt pan or spray with floured vegetable spray.

Place cake mix, oil, eggs, liqueur, vodka, pudding mix, and orange juice into a large mixing bowl. Beat on medium speed for 2 minutes.

Pour evenly into prepared Bundt pan and tap gently on the counter to release any air bubbles. Bake for 45 to 50 minutes. A toothpick inserted in the center should come out clean. (Do not overbake or it will become dry.) Let rest for 5 minutes. Gently loosen edges around the rims with a thin rubber spatula. Invert and unmold from Bundt pan onto a cake platter, then glaze while warm.

For the glaze, mix powdered sugar, orange juice, liqueur, and vodka until smooth. (If it is too thick, add more orange juice a few drops at a time to get a drizzling consistency. If it is too thin, add more powdered sugar a teaspoon at a time.) Drizzle over the warm cake and let cool to room temperature for glaze to set.

Yield: 1 bundt cake (about 10 to 12 servings)

Being A Hockey Wife....

No I am not Married to a NHL Player... I am however married to a Beer League Hockey Player. 
He is a goalie and he LOVES to play! Except for the night games... At 1100. When he has to work at 7 the next day... 

But he does it... He plays on two different teams in the League. They have different levels at the ice rink he plays at.... 

Masters League A: players 35 years and older who are advanced players.
Masters League B: players 35 years and older who are intermediate players.
Masters League C: 35 years and older who advanced past novice/not played in a while.
Level A: adults who are advanced players.
Level B: adults who are intermediate players.
Level C: adults who are lower intermediate players.
Level D: adults who have advanced past novice or have not played in a while.
Novice: is offered to those adults who are just beginning. 

My Husband plays on Level B and Level C. He has been playing Ice Hockey since before we met. When we were dating I would go to all the games I could.. Now I only go to Championship games if I am off. His game are WAY to late or really early at 7 am. Plus it is really cold in there... hahaha

I have to say he is pretty good. And I am not saying this because he is my husband. He really is good... This season so far on one team he has a GAA (Goals Against Average) of 3.10 He has 248 saves in 278 attempts. 

A few years ago his C Level team won the Championship three seasons in a row... It almost made him not be able to play in that league anymore because they said he was "too good" Well since then his team has changed and the players on the other team got better.. SO he is still the goalie. What is even funnier before they were "good" they had a different goalie and the begged Steve to play for them.. 

His name on the "Fairfax Stanley Cup"

A few weeks ago he was asked to play a scrimmage at the Verizon Center before a Washington Capitals Game. I unfortunately was unable to go due to work. But he said he had a blast and it was really cool to play on NHL Ice.
