My addiction...

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Netflix for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.
Ok, I’m going to let you guys in on a little addiction of mine. Do all of you have a little something that you look forward to everyday? Something that is mindless down time to just relax? Some people run, read a book, or check in on social media. Well, I am addicted to watching Netflix every night before I go to bed. I can’t stop!! It’s what I look forward to each and every day before I go to sleep.  I can’t wait to get all ready for bed, get my comfy jammies on, get all snuggly under the covers, and then on my tablet or my phone I watch one of MY shows.  Not Dora, Backyardigan, or football! It’s a time for me! All moms out there know what I’m talking about! ;)
I’m also a crime show girl. I don’t know why I choose to watch scary crime shows before I go to sleep but I do. I love it!! I love trying to figure out who killed who and why! My FAVORITE show is Law and Order. Dun…Dun.. For those of you that watch Law and Order know exactly what that sound is. Hee Hee ;)  A cool thing about Netflix is that you can watch a TV series from start to finish. That is exactly what I did with Law and Order SVU and now I am watching Law and Order Criminal Intent. I’m loving it so far!  Sometimes a specific episode is SO good that I can’t wait till bedtime to see how it ends so I stream an episode from my tablet in the kitchen or watch from my phone while I’m waiting for one of my kids to get out of baseball practice etc. I get to watch from where ever I get a wifi signal!!
My family has always been big into watching movies together. When I met my husband he was into watching the TV series 24 with Kiefer Sutherland. So when we were dating we would watch it together. Each episode has a big cliff hanger at the end and we just couldn’t wait for the next episode to come on the next week. A few years ago we noticed that they have it on Netflix and got hooked on it once again. Now that our kids are older we have introduced them to the series and each holiday, when we can stay up late, we watch several episodes of 24 a night. It’s so good!! This Thanksgiving we look forward to watching more 24 on Netflix together. It’s fun to have something that we all really enjoy and can sit around and talk and laugh about it together. We really love this time!
Have all of you seen the new show Orange is the New Black on Netflix?  It is a comedy-drama about a woman’s experiences in prison because of transporting drug money. In the show they drink White Russians. Chef Curtis Stone has created a spin on the drink to correlate with the show. It’s called Red’s Orange White Russian.  I love White Russians and decided to give it a try. It turned out really good and I wanted to share it with all of you today.
Ice Cubes

¼ cup Kahlua

2 tablespoons vodka
1 tablespoon Cointreau

2 tablespoons heavy whipping cream

1 navel orange

Fill a rocks glass halfway with ice cubes. Add the Kahlua, vodka, and Cointreau and gently stir to blend.
Pour the cream over so that it floats on top of the Kahlua mixture. Using a fine grater, grate some orange zest on top. Serve immediately.
We might not be watching this show together as a family but I now know what I will be drinking while I’m watching some 24 this Thanksgiving!
Do any of you watch Netflix as well? What are your favorite shows to watch? What will you be watching this holiday season? I would love to hear! Happy holidays everyone.
