|Cory and me, enjoying a makeshift picnic of Taco Bell before rehearsal yesterday|
in my tiny front yard.
But with the weather FINALLY becoming warm and sunny and amazing, it's hard to motivate myself to do anything but lie in the sun and continue to work on my tan/burn before the sun sets. New Englanders know that Spring is always far too short, so we need to enjoy it while it lasts! I'm always torn: do what I NEED to do, or what I WANT to do? Gah!
Times like these, I need to take Finn's advice:
Sometimes, you just need a cocktail to relax and unwind. And if you add loads of fruit to said cocktail, you can pretend it's healthy!--that's my story, and I'm sticking to it. Plus, for non-drinkers, you can simply eliminate the tequila and have a great smoothie to usher in the gorgeous weather of Spring.
Cinco De Mayo is only days away, and Margaritas are the drink of choice. I am a little late with posting my holiday recipes, but be on the lookout for a few in the next couple of days!
|Relaxing moments are few and far between!|
But please, serve these in mason jars. It's just so classy and fun.
Frozen Strawberry Mango Margarita
