Have a great weekend and Mother's Day!

My son played his first baseball game of the season today, and even though they lost 7-5, he played great!  The coach has been working him up as a catcher, and in my opinion....he was the best catcher I saw today!  Any ways, enjoy all the things you have planned this weekend.  I will be most likely in the garden!  And no, that is not my garden, but I will post pics later this season.

Picture of Margarita Recipe

Here's a perfect match to all of your Cinco de Mayo plans!



  • Ice cubes
  • 3 ounces tequila
  • 2 ounces freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 1 ounce Simple Syrup, recipe follows
  • 1/2 to 1 teaspoon orange liqueur
  • 1 tablespoon Lime-salt-sugar, recipe follows


Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Add tequila, lime juice, and Simple Syrup. Cover and shake until mixed and chilled, about 30 seconds. (In general, the drink is ready by the time the shaker mists up.) Place Lime-salt-sugar on a plate. Press the rim of a chilled rocks or wine glass into the mixture to rim the edge. Strain margarita into the glass.
