I had not been to a college game since my days at Texas A&M...and so, it was a big thrill. And it was difficult not to do the A&M yells, since I have been trained to do those for so many years. I am also shocked that I was able to convince Roger to watch FOOTBALL. He enjoyed it, too! But...more on that in a later post. It's FUN MONDAY. I haven't forgotten.I'm just a bad Tigger. Not only am I late, but I'm REPOSTING. I know - awful. But consider this: my daughter's boyfriend gave her crabs yesterday.
I'll give you a minute to let that sink in.
Are you breathing yet?
Okay, good. He only gave her two. She gave them names: "Romance" and "Sanity." And yes, they are hermit crabs. And they are not hermitted up anywhere on her person - but they have a "crabitat" that we will be fancying up for them today.
So, now you have all my excuses for being so late. This week's hostess is Lisa, The Food Snob, and her assignment was as such:
I want to see your favorite recipe, be it either because your grandmother wrote it, it's the easiest thing you can slap together that everyone likes, it makes you feel healthy, it's cheap, etc. You don't have to make it (although you could if you want) but let us see the index card, cookbook, printed paper from the web, and why it's a favorite in your house. If you have a lot, just pick one, I know I'll have to!
Now is when I'm a VERY bad Tigger...and will most likely fail Lisa's assignment because a) I have posted this before, and b) alcohol is NOT really food. So, spank me. This is a drink recipe I weaseled out of a male waiter at Chili's. It's called the "Presidente Margarita," and here is a copy of the recipe he gave me, on the sly, after I batted my lashes and cajoled him a bit: The Chili's shaker is a must-have for beginning this drink, which only costs $2 after you buy the drink itself. I must state as a disclaimer that anyone under the age of 21 should LOOK AWAY. NOW!
Ingredients include some pricey liquor, from left to right: Sauza Tequila, El Presidente Brandy, Cointreau, lime juice, sweet and sour mix, and ice.Step one, fill the shaker with ice:Step two, add 1 1/4 shots of Sauza:Step two and a half, (if you want to deviate from the recipe a bit, Tiggerlane-style) add a dash of the new Jose Cuervo Black:Step three, add one shot of Presidente brandy:Step four, add 3/4 shot of Cointreau. Look at that price tag. OUCH!Step five, add one shot of lime juice:Step six, fill the rest of the tumbler with sweet and sour mix. And then say that four times real fast, because shortly, you will no longer be able to.Put the cute little caps back on the tumbler, and shake vigorously. Preferably over your sink, in case after your second or third drink, you lose the ability to gauge how tightly you are NOT holding said caps on tumbler:Froth is desired, yes, indeed.Pour into glass,and ENJOY! (FYI, in Tiggerlane's world, salt is only good for shooting tequila and making INSTANT margaritas - a recipe that requires a recliner and a lot of stupidity.)Now go check out the non-delinquent, non-cheating Fun Monday gang!
