Hey, you guys get two posts today! Since it's snowing like the end of times, we had a tropical vaca in the house tonight. We were not allowed to look at the snow or even talk about it. This was the best idea ever.
First we invited Jimmy Buffet. Because it's not a tropical party without him. We're still waiting for his response, but we pretended he was with us. (the weather is here, wish you were beautiful...)
Second, we mixed up the best margaritas ever. I even surprised myself. The secret is whole blood oranges. After a round or two of these, it makes it hard to prepare dinner. Really hard. Dinner was a bit lame. But at least the margaritas were good!
Third, we made fajitas. Nothing fancy here. Lots of bell peppers and red onions. And some sliced leftover pork and some chorizo. I would give you a recipe, but there are probably more exciting ones floating around internet land. My secret ingredient is Penzey's Spice Fajita Blend. Love it.
The Best Margaritas Ever.
1 cup Tequila (I used the gold stuff, because it's all we had)
1/2 cup Triple Sec (I used Cointreau, again, all we had)
1/4 cup lime juice
2 whole blood oranges, peels removed, quartered (look ma, we're eating fruit)
Blend everything, but ice until smooth. Add in ice and blend until no large chunks. Pour into margarita glasses, rimmed with salt.
