Weekend Equation Revealed and a Freebie

Remember when the economy was booming, everyone was partying to Madonna and I was a skinny, hot, young, successful designer and rock star? 

  • Yeah?   Barely?  Yeah, me too. (wah!)
  • While I do remember a few things, one of them is this recipe from the "Sweet Potato Queen's Big Ass Cook Book."  Back in the day, this recipe was a staple in my freezer and  had me laughing my, well, you know off.  (I think I have said a$$ word too many times this week.) This recipe is like opening a time capsule for me; helping me reminisce about the good old days and that is exactly what I plan on doing this weekend!  Opening the old "time capsule" starting with this awesome Margarita recipe from the "Big Ass Cookbook".   
  • For all of you that read yesterdays post, here is the rest of the equation that will put you right where you want to be this weekend. Perhaps you too need a blast from the grab your favorite boyfriend (mine is still Aqua-Man) and get your grove on!  Here we go...
  • Ingredients:
  • 1 can of frozen Limeade (do not thaw)
  • 1 12 ounce bottle of Corona beer (or other light beer
  • 1 12 ounce can of 7-Up (or carbonated lemon-lime beverage) Don't even think about going all diet on me, but if you must, you must.
  • 12 ounces of your favorite tequila (basically just fill the limeade can to the top)
  • Directions:  Mix all together.  (Do not put in a blender or it will blow up in your face.)  Then serve (BTW: serving people is very important in life)!  
  • Or you can put it in the freezer over night.  What I like to do (because I am neurotic) is make a couple batches a few days in advance and put in pitchers or gallon size Ziploc bags and freeze.  The alcohol prevents the mixture from completely freezing solid, so after about 24 hours you can scoop it out with a ladle (or with spoon directly into your mouth). Then I scoop Margarita slush into my favorite glasses, rimmed with Celtic Sea Salt (or not) and serve. This is a grown up Slurpee gone wild.   
  • Please note that after about two of these.  You are fearless, feeling no pain, arm wrestling your friends for the rest of the pitcher and dancing like Britney Spears.
  • So good.  So bad.  Just like the good old days...
  • Peace, Love and big "fat a$$" memories...A
PS If you guys don't start commenting on my posts.  I am not going to tell you the "secret of what every man wants" - so there.  And besides I am going to send someone a "Freebie" copy of this cookbook from the comment section.  Love you, love me and my big fat secrets.

  8. I can't figure out how to make my comments work.
    It's really annoying me. But I have made some comments and then they don't post. But I'll try again. And I was really hoping for that Pottery Barn gift card to put toward Joy's curtains. Shoot.... :) Love you Alexis.
