i told you last month that my mom makes AMAZING margaritas.
i am here for a visit and asked her if i could blog it.
of course she said yes.
frozen limeade, tequila, triple sec and a beer. (any brands are fine for any of these i am sure)
pour the limeade into the blender...
use the empty limeade can as your measuring cup.
fill it 2/3 full of tequila
then 1/3 full of the triple sec
pour it in the blender too.
fill your blender with ice.
lots of ice.
then blend it.
it will be slushy yumminess.
after that is done THEN you add one bottle of beer.
DO NOT USE THE BLENDER after the beer is poured in.
you will have margaritas all over the place.
(i may have done that once in my kitchen but no one can prove it so i am not admitting to anything....)
i won't tell you how many i had.
Or how many pitchers we made....
mom made a big dinner for everyone.
we call it "polynesian chicken"...you start with rice and then you continue down the line of food
adding what you like to your plate.
i choose rice, chicken, sauce (cream of chicken soup), cheese, pineapples, chow mein noodles & coconut.
but everyone always a different meal at the table.
(the strawberries/bananas/yogurt/cottage cheese are side dishes...not part of the polynesian chicken)
we ate on the patio in the perfect summer weather.
a still summer night.
my sister and her girls came for the night too.
it was so nice to spend some time together.
we got the kids to bed and my mom, dad and my sister and i talked into the night.
a really nice evening.
you can make these on the rocks instead of frozen.
just make it in a pitcher and add 1/2 a can of water to it.
then serve it over ice.
it is really good that way too!
