Tequila Tuesday

That's what Josh decided tonight was. It was an excellent idea, and even more excellent considering tonight was the season finale of Real Housewives of New York. Leggate! We had a few friends over and it was really fun. I left work at 6pm which was beautiful. By 6:30 I was in shorts and a tank top in the kitchen.

Our menu:
  1. Bloody Marys (normally I think of these as a breakfast drink, but somebody asked for one, so I made a batch)
  2. Mango Tropical (silver tequila, mango, organic agave, fresh lime)
  3. La Sandia (silver tequila, fresh watermelon, rosemary and lemon)
  4. Coronas (some guy brought that)
Guacamole (avocado, jalapeño, tomato, onion and cilantro) with tortilla chips

  1. caesar salad (romaine lettuce, roasted red peppers and chile croutons, tossed with jalapeño-parmesan dressing)
  2. chicken enchiladas (pulled chicken rolled in soft corn tortillas and topped with a tomatillo cream sauce)
  3. refried black beans
I wanted to do empanadas but only started planning last night and there just wasn't enough time.  For dessert I did these icy melon granitas. I'm not quite sure what I was doing, but people seemed to like them. Honestly, I'm thinking about having one for breakfast tomorrow.

Jalapeño Parmesan dressing sounds great. Glad you took some time to relax and have some fun.
