After a long week, this is exactly the news I wanted to hear!

Check this out: Alcohol may make fruit more fruitful

"A fruity cocktail may not only be fun to drink but may count as health food, U.S. and Thai researchers said on Thursday. Adding ethanol — the type of alcohol found in rum, vodka, tequila and other spirits —boosted the antioxidant nutrients in strawberries and blackberries, the researchers found. Any colored fruit might be made even more healthful with the addition of a splash of alcohol, they report in the Journal of the Science of Food and Agriculture."

So, based on this info, I might just go home and make myself a Strawberry Daiquiri. My big plans for the night were to do some laundry and catch up on my reality tv schedule that Tivo has so kindly saved for me. How does that sound for a Friday night? I little rum might just make this all the more interesting.
