OK, it’s Tuesday & already this has been an amazing week. First, my son broke a team record for the 50M Free. Way to go honey! Then, Deeba (bad girl!) tagged me with ANOTHER blog award (imagine myself blushing). Then, I won ICE CREAM from Farida (I’m still debating on whether or not to share with the family…. if the box arrives while everyone is out, then I can easily wolf down 2 pints on my own – at dinner I’ll just say I’m eating light, no appetite. They will be so impressed by my will-power!). THEN, my mom surprised me with NEW DISHES!!!!! Can you believe it?!?! She has been horrified by my dishes for years, but seeing them on my blog for the whole world to know was too much for her. I have now officially upgraded from my Pier 1 Imports Outlet finds (set of 6 bowls & plates for $6! Come on, it was a great deal!) to Sur La Table fancy-schmacy dinnerware. Thank you, Mom! I’m going to start blogging on my kitchen to see if Alfredo is equally horrified. 😉
So, to celebrate ALL of these great happening I want to share with you our favorite summer drink: Watermelon Margarita!
- 1 whole watermelon
- 1 bottle margarita mix
- 1 bottle of Tequila
Cube & freeze entire watermelon at least 24 hrs in advance (only share with children IF they catch you cutting up the watermelon, otherwise freeze it all). Then, follow directions on margarita mix bottle replacing the ice with frozen watermelon. After 2 margaritas, no one cares if the meal was any good!
I will be tagging some outstanding bloggers later in the week for the “Excellent Blog Award.” I just wanted to send out my thanks to Deeba quickly because she is such a delight! Farida, thank you for the ice cream! I can’t wait!!!! I think the real prize is your blog & all the Azerbaijan treats that you share with us. Mom, what can I say? You amaze me with your generousity! I look forward to a few margaritas & a great meal with you here – served on the new plates of course!
