It's 5 o'clock in Margaritaville

 I'm trying very hard not to waste foods. I haven't completely mastered it, but I think I'm getting there. My grocery bill has sky rocketed and it would be nice not to be wasteful. 

I had a couple of limes sitting in my fridge that needed to be used so I thought .... let's try making home made margaritas ... Barefoot Contessa Style! 

Hum ... I need Tequila and Triple Sec ... off I went to the liquor store. 

As I proceeded to make the recipe, Saturday night was looking to be an enjoyable and relaxing night. Hum .... much too tart, needs a bit of sugar.

They were yummy ....


As I sipped my second Margarita ... enjoying the fruit of my labour, thinking .... now that's life .... that is ... until it hit me like a ton of bricks. OMG, it dawned on me that the Barefoot Contessa likes her alcoholic drinks strong ... BANG! 

What I thought was going to be a somewhat productive evening ended up with me just sitting there on the couch ... in a zombie mode ... listening to music. Nothing accomplished that night except using two (2) limes! lol

The first time I make a recipe, I don't usually question and follow the instructions ... I certainly was not thinking that night. She calls for the following per serving:

2 Ounces of Tequila
2 Ounces of Triple Sec 

You can bet I wont be making that mistake again! Oh, and more limes on my grocery list!

Cheers!

This made me laugh. Out loud! The amount of money spent at the liquor store to save the investment in those two limes~ yep, sounds about right!

lol. Guess that means you need to keep trying. Wish I could send you limes as our trees are loaded.
