"Frozen Delight" Lychee-Lime Margarita

Frozen Delight! I love my new term for Margarita!

I'm on my Margarita obsession at the moment. Thank you very much, Teacher Bibo!

Hermie said I am done with Phad Thai... Now I'm hooked to this "cocktail du jour".

I invited Jing for lunch. Of course, it had to be a Mexican lunch so we could drink.....

What else?!?!?!

Frozen Lychee-Lime Margarita!

Yum!!! YUM!!!!! Slurppppppppppp! Ha hahahaha!

I experimented with Mexican Rice. We ate it with the Baked Pollo Loco Chicken.

Jing and I were surprised the rice turned out good! I got the recipe from the net but adjusted it a little and used ingredients which are available in the supermarket.

( )

Mexican Rice

1 C. Long grain, rice

1 T. Cooking oil

1 onion, chopped

1/2 Can Whole tomatoes with juice

3 cloves garlic, chopped

1 jalapeño pepper, deseeded and chopped

1 T. Tomato paste

1 1/2 C. Water

1 Knorr Chicken Cube

1/2 t. Salt

Wansoy leaves

Rinse rice in a colander under running water for about a minute until the water is clear. Drain and set aside.

Process the onions and canned tomatoes in a blender. Set aside. Make sure it yields 1 C.

Boil the water, add the Knorr chicken cube and stir until dissolved. Set aside.

Heat oil in a heavy bottomed pan or pot with a lid.

Add the rice and sauté for a few minutes.

Add the garlic and jalapeño and continue sautéing for a minute.

Pour the chicken stock and puréed tomatoes then add the tomato paste and salt.

When it boils, lower heat and cover. Stir halfway through.

When the rice is cooked, transfer onto a serving plate and garnish with wansoy leaves.

Very easy!

Shey and I bumped into each other in Rockwell. I invited her for merienda at my house. We had Chili Cheese Fries, Hunagarian Sausage with Cheese and.....

Guess what else!?!

Frozen Lychee-Lime Margarita!!!!

Ha hahahaha do not worry... I am not turning into a "slush-y". I use a very small amount of vodka every time I make a drink. My friends and I do not get drunk.... We just get a very minimal buzz....

Hahahaha the buzz sounds like an annoying bee hovering by your ear!

Besides.... Vodka is medicinal. It helps relieve my allergic rhinitis.

I hope my blood sugar does not go up!

I am taking Carica Mangosteen Capsules.

And.... Tita Judy gave me Ashitaba!

I'm supposed to eat 3 leaves before meals!

So..... I should get very good blood test results in December!

Wish me luck!!!
