a day for celebration…

Today couldn’t have been a better day… not only is it Friday and the start to a wonderful weekend, but it also happens to be ‘National Margarita Day’ [I feel like it was just recently National Margarita Day, but who cares since I sure don’t need a special day to enjoy a few!]…
So in honor of this spectacular day, what better to do than celebrate by downing a few homemade margs! That everyone, is exactly what we will all be doing tonight!
First we will start off with a traditional with fresh squeezed lime juice, another chock full of fresh raspberry that I’ll purée and then lastly one with pomegranate/blueberry.
After a quick dash to the market this morning, I picked up all the needed ingredients for our Friday night fiesta.
Good tequila is what makes a great marg, but some blue corn chips and homemade sweet/spicy pineapple salsa make you go back for more!

Al fresco dining!!

Tonight was the first night of al fresco dining of the season with my honey… after a day of power washing and cleaning, it was a must to take advantage of sitting outside and enjoying the summer-like weather!
On the menu were hamburgers made from ground filet mignon and top round. The burgers were prepped no-frills in order to relish in the meaty goodness… just simple salt and pepper! A total of six minutes on an open grill with searing flames, one slice of cheddar, onion and a salsa made up of a mix of diced veg, olives, corn and black beans on a toasted bun. Dinner was close to served…
For a side, homemade pasta salad and for some salty crunch… kettle cooked chips! A light, warm breeze and dinner was ready to be savored…
