mmmmm .... margarita....

So tonight was supposed to be mexican food night at my house. I have been wanting to have margarita night for a while and decided to make fajitas with my margaritas. I made margaritas with a mix I have had for a long time and tequila that I bought when I was in Cancun. I think the mix was just really old because it tasted really funny. Either that or the tequila is REALLY potent. So, I trashed that bit and made strawberry daquries. I love mixed drinks. However, I don't drink very often. And because I don't drink often, it takes very little for me to get drunk or even tipsy. Well, I've drunk about half the batch and I'm well past tipsy! :-)

I did make my fajitas and they were fabulous! I sauteed onion and a green bell pepper (fresh from my garden) with mushrooms and a sliced jalapeno (also from my garden) in butter. I added some steak that I'd marinated for several hours in a fajita seasoning mixed in beer. I also added some sliced cherry tomatoes near the end. When that was done I put the mix in a heated tortilla and layered shredded monterey jack, cheddar, and mozzerella cheeses, sour cream and salsa. It was so delicious! But it was very, very hot! It must have been the jalapeno cooking with the steak. I was only able to eat one fajita because it was so hot. But that just means I'll have more for later!
I'm getting sleepy... a side effect of the alcohol and I think I'll head to bed now. I'm reading a book that I'm enjoying and I would like to get back to it. OOhh.. I just saw where Blade II is getting ready to come on. Maybe I should stay up and watch it...well, until I pass out! :-)

Blessings,
