I just realized it has been forever, it feels like years, since I have done a tipsy Tuesday post.
Shame on me....bad blogger!
I haven't meant to ignore your desire for delicious beverages.
It is just that my son was the master mixologist in our house and when the kids all moved out on their own bartender duty fell to me. My idea of bartending was to open a bottle of wine. Oh occasionally I would whip up a dirty martini, but wine or a cold micro brew was just fine with me.
Lately though, our tastes have been drawn to tequila. We are big blanco fans. Don't get me wrong, I am not against a nice shot of Añejo here and there, but blanco is our tequila of choice.
We have been shaking up a few Bloody Marias, Tequila Drivers, and our new fave.....these Palomas.

I don't know about you, but I watch a TON of Food Network shows. If I am not watching something on Netflix with Kevin, it is pretty much on 24/7. I especially love the competition shows, with Chopped being right at the top of that list.
I like to think that I would be able to pull a dish together in a split second, but when they have things like chicken livers with black licorice?
Ummmm ya......I would be stumped!

Oh my goodness! Has summer hit you yet?
It is not super hot here, I mean last year at this time it was 20 degrees hotter
But this year it is muggy as all get out! I honestly think I would rather it be 90 degrees, than 70-ish with what feels like 100% humidity. Even with the fan on polar vortex, pointed directly at my face, I still wake up in a puddle

With grill season in high gear, pretty much everything is ending up on the grill. It is fun to be out doors, doesn't heat up the house, and adds a delicious kiss of smoke flavor to everything you cook. A flavor you just can't achieve any other way.
If you have been around here for very long, you know that vegetables, especially tomatoes, were on my, "Not going anywhere near my face" list for most of my life.
