Ladies where are you, the bread is getting all dried up, can't even smell the Amarula anymore :wall:

This forum is HUGE ... how was I supposed to know you'd started the AASS group Heksie! :wall: :wall: :wall:

Well, it's Day 4 of my Kruger trip, I've just finished Amarula bottle number 1 and have 2 more left ... I guess that makes me an Amarula-holic so maybe I should start attending these meetings ...

Love your ice cream recipe Heksie.

The mornings and evenings are chilly which means loads of Magic Milk Coffees - purely for medicinal purposes, of course, I mean I wouldn't want to catch a cold and feel cr@p whilst in the park, would I? :) :) :)

What a good sister she is-promoting our Brand all over the Kruger right now! :dance:

I'm a bit :redface: I took 1 bottle for my trip last week. We went on the Sunday and Monday night it was finished :slap: Cheetah had to bring 3 more bottles from Jo'burg as a bargaining fee to catch a ride with me :twisted:

I have a serious problem and I cannot think of anyone that can help.... :slap: :pray:
I have to bake a cottage pie for dinner. What does our exclusive recipe say? How much Amarula goes into the mash again? :?

Amarula in mash :think:
Never thought of doing that... Don't you think it will make it a bit sweet? If so... Maybe like 50ml... What does my fellow AASSes say?

Heksie wrote:I have gone on a long and hard Amaruladition where I was only allowed to drink Amarula and eat the Amarula fruit that has fallen from the majestic tree that was put on earth to free minds and touch souls. It was the only way to escape the stench of the city and become a real bushwoman. Everyday I wanted to break free from the hardships of this task, as I was a weak citygoer, but for my fellow Amarulics I had to be strong and overcome this walk to freedom. After long sweaty days and sleepless nights I am standing here in front of you - my AASS's - a new person with a new beginning filled with sweet nectar and great friendships.

Helo my name is Heksie and I'm an Amarulic


Very nice Chairperson Heksie 8)

Maybe I should tell my SO, Apex Predator that I have found a group she should join(when she gets the opportunity to go online.... :twisted: )..... :whistle:
I must say she is rather hooked on this particular fruit drink...called Amarula :wink:
We always have to take multiple bottles of this potion with us when we travel.....is this a sign?? :hmz:
I must say I like beer but coffee with Amarula....or just plain Amarula....not bad.... :mrgreen:
Live life on the edge but be careful not to fall off! :wink:

Okay my fellow AASS friends, I'm here reporting for duty ...

Bushbuck87, the best Magic Milk Coffee is made by slugging a large quantity of "Magic Milk", AKA Amarula, into your coffee once it is poured. I'm sure that once your SO has tasted Magic Milk Coffee she will become a regular coffee drinker!

I thought I'd had too many MMCs this morning ... I kept seeing spots in front of me!!! He he he ... all will be revealed in my April TR!!!
