Have Not’s eat Guac and Lots of Grapefruit

The have-nots have sure been eating lots and lots of grapefruits and guacamole this week in the Big Brother house.  Amanda, McCrae, Jessie and Judd have been suffering through on the same slop dishes and sure did not seem to have the energy to get creative with new dishes this week and someone threw away all the slop Amanda made and had stored in the refrigerator!

I myself have even found it difficult to come up with any amazing ideas with this week’s America’s choice foods (common America, I need something to work with here!) so this week I came up with some beverages (Amanda was complaining about nothing to drink for have-nots) that can be created with just have-not items.  The house guests were wishing for a soda machine (the machine that can make pop from flavored water) as a luxury!  Maybe a hint of something to come!

Hot Vanilla Cocktail

Ingredients

  •  14 oz milk
  • 6 Tbsp. powdered creamer
  • 1 Tsp. ground vanilla bean or Vanilla Extract
  • 5 Tbsp. sugar or equivalent sugar substitute
  • Ground cinnamon to Taste

Directions

In a heavy saucepan, combine the ingredients and warm over low heat. When small bubbles appear around the sides of the pan, remove it from the heat and let the mixture sit at room temperature for 15 to 20 minutes. Place the pan back on the stove and rewarm the mixture, whisking it briefly to redistribute the skin that forms on the milk’s surface. Pour the vanilla milk into two 8-ounce mugs and top with a sprinkling of cinnamon. Drink hot.

Grapefruit Tea

Ingredients

  •  2 cups ruby-red grapefruit juice (squeezed from 2 grapefruits)
  • 2 to 4 tablespoons honey
  • 1 cinnamon stick

 Directions

In a medium pot, combine juice, honey, cinnamon and 1/2 cup water. Bring to a boil over high heat; strain and discard solids. Serve with a grapefruit segment or strip of zest.

These drinks would certainly bring calories, and some filler for empty have not stomachs in the BB house!  So next weeks have-nots will hopefully have something amazing that we and they can create a whole lots of amazing eats!  Here is a peek into the BB house 3 or so hours before the live show.. Amanda is cooking up a HUGE portion of fried slop with Salsa for she and McCrae to eat for before the live show!  Tune in!!!!
