Happy Birthday - Mikey-Mo

Another birthday come and gone, he flew into town for a whirlwind weekend that had us driving around most of North Dallas and celebrating long into the night with close friends and family. He hit up almost all of his favorite places to eat here in Dallas (you'll just have to hit up Potbelly in two weeks!), including, but not limited to: Sprinkles, Chipotle, & Fred's Philly Cheesesteak.

Saturday night, he mentioned wanting Chicken Marsala, so Don and I headed to the grocery store to get all of the ingredients. Since he'd brought in a nice bottle of tequila, I figured that a margarita would be something delicious to enjoy after our heavy pasta meal. The chicken filled everyone up and while we were all lounging around, we sipped on the margaritas. YUM! Since the tequila was out, we went ahead and toasted another year of his life, because you should never miss an opportunity to celebrate life.
Happy birthday, priMo! Hard to believe it's been 24 years already. Man where did the time go? By the way, I'll be sure to have a box of Corn Pops just for you. :D

Margarita Recipe:
25 medium Limes
3 Grapefruit
5 C simple syrup
1 1/2 C Tequila
1/2 C Patron Citronge
Ice

Squeeze the limes and grapefruit into a bowl. In another bowl make your simple syrup with hot water and sugar. In a pitcher, add the tequila, then pour in grapefruit/lime mixture, followed by the simple syrup, then the Patron Citronge (or triple sec if you want), and finally finish off with ice.

Enjoy!
