Everywhere I look, people are presently changing jobs, or moving (or trying to), ending relationships, or having babies, or other really big life changes. It’s like the earth shifted some and our realities and plans with it! What everyone seems to have in common though is that we are all working really hard and pinching pennies! I am exhausted just thinking about all of the farmer’s markets, shows, last few months of running the shop, preserving enough food to get us through the winter, saving enough money to get us through the winter, and keeping up with regular farmgirl chores. I could use a cocktail. But I can’t be running around to wine bars with my friends anymore. Time to settle in. Invite some folks over and sit on the back deck and take a break! And pull out my friend Rodney’s easy margarita recipe.
Rodney’s Excellent Easy Margarita
1 tube of limeade frozen concentrate
Stick in fridge until it is about half thawed then pour contents into blender.
Fill tube twice with water and pour in, once with tequila and pour in then fill tube 1/3 with triple sec. Blend, serve, mmmm……
(Now mind you, Rodney makes these a tad stronger but this is my variation so that I do not get too tipsy. Not pretty.)
Combine plain goat cheese with chopped green chilies and serve with crackers or chips. Chop up tomatoes, cilantro, onion, and garlic for easy salsa. Take one container of sour cream and add tons of garlic powder, onion powder, nutritional yeast, taco seasoning, anything really, and blend well for a fantastic easy dip. Fresh fruit or grilled corn are easy accompaniments. Enjoy your summer and friends!
