French Soda for Valentines

French SodaHere's the recipe for French Soda. You can use any syrup flavoring of your choice, but we use an organic french vanilla syrup (no HFCS!). This is our special occasion soda recipe for New Year's Eve, Super Bowl Party, birthdays, etc. Show your little ones a little love this Valentine's Day by allowing them to create their own homemade soda.

Makes 1 French Soda

  • 8 ounces - Sparkling Water or Club Soda
  • 4 ounces - Half and Half Cream
  • 2 Tablespoons  - Your favorite syrup flavor (We like French Vanilla. Check the coffee/tea section of your grocery store for syrup flavors. Whole Foods and the organic section of your grocer will have flavors without HFCS.)
  • Whipped Cream
  • Your coolest looking straw
  • Your favorite cup or glass

Add sparkling water or club soda to your glass/cup. Add in half-n-half and syrup. Stir together. Taste to make sure you have enough syrup. If not, add a little more. Swirl on the whipped cream. Add in your straw. Enjoy!

Try this also with strawberry syrup or raspberry syrup. Soooo good :-)

LAS VEGAS (AP) Police were called after hundreds of job seekers on Thursday flooded a board meeting for the new Oakland Raiders stadium in Las Vegas and turned irate when they discovered they'd been had by a Amari Cooper Jerseys hoax.A flyer promoting "pre-job recruitment sign-ups" attracted more than 700 people to a regularly scheduled meeting of the Las Vegas Stadium Authority board.Tensions flared among some attendees after officials explained there were no jobs as of yet on the $1.9 billion project, which has many steps Bruce Irvin Jerseys that must be completed before construction can begin.Las Vegas police closed off access to the county building's parking Charles Woodson Jerseys lots after the size of the crowd ballooned.Board chairman Steve Hill denounced the flyer after the meeting, saying, "If folks were brought to the meeting under a false pretense, I think that's too bad, that obviously shouldn't happen."But he added that the attendance "exhibits a real Latavius Murray Jerseys desire on the part of a number of people in the community to go to work."The fake flyer specifically targeted black men and women and advertised for union and non-union positions.Raiders executives and members of the group that the team has assembled to carry out the project spoke at Thursday's meeting and said they are working on an agreement that will address minority hiring and reaffirmed that they will meet a state-mandated 15 percent contracting of small businesses."The Raiders take this obligation very seriously," Raiders Executive Vice President Dan Ventrelle said of the so-called community benefits plan, which will outline the hiring of a diverse workforce. "We embrace working within the outline of the legislation and meeting all of its requirements."The board is expected to discuss the plan at its August meeting, as well as an agreement that would allow the football team of Khalil Mack Jerseys the University of Nevada, Las Vegas to use the 65,000-seat stadium that will be built near the Las Vegas Strip.

In addition, the team has secured a $650 million loan from Bank of America to cover the rest of the project's cost.
