'rita and 'rona
A perfect pair, if I do say so myself (kind of like me and Big Guy). Saturday was all about the Mexican theme. Kat and her boyfriend, Josh(ie), came into town and what better way to welcome them than with a fiesta.
On Friday night I prepped my “OMG – that’s so adorable” sweet treat. When I saw these Strawberry Margarita Jell-O Shooters I about died. Okay, that’s a lie. I just thought they were adorable and I had to make them.
First, you’ll cut off the bottom so that it can stand up. Don’t get to knife-happy though. Then you’ll hull out of the insides. In other words, find the biggest strawberries ever made. I used an apple corer to gently remove the innards of the strawberry. Easier said than done. A few strawberries were deemed “unable to save.”
Then you’ll mix up the margarita mix – 1 cup water, package of strawberry “J-E-L-L-O” (spelled out, of course), 4 ounces white tequila and 2 ounces Grand Marnier. Refer back to the website where I got the idea for more explicit instructions.
In order to transfer the liquid into the strawberry I used a baster. An eye dropper would work wonders, though. These don’t hold much – they’re more for visual excitement.
And the rest of the spread:
The pork wasn’t the only thing smokin’…I think Big Guy’s smokin’, too.
Unfortunately, I have no photos of the pulled pork tacos with my amazing pineapple slaw. Lo siento. In the pineapple slaw: cabbage (obviously), pineapple chunks (duh), green onion, red onion, cilantro, S&P, white vinegar, and lime juice.
guac hummus a la TJs
My thoughts on the guac: loved it. It wasn’t too overpowering. Even the anti-guac Big Guy liked it. 5 out of 5 stars. I was impressed, what can I say.
This is a life-changing, 2 ingredient dip. Honestly, I made it last weekend for Superbowl when I needed something super fast. AKA – no time to go to the store. Simple mix green yogurt (or sour cream) and taco seasoning (the pre-mixed packet). That’s it, folks. Go make it and impress someone. (Thanks Momma Bell - I stole that from you.)
