It’s been hot here. It got up to 102° today and yesterday was 99°. I had hoped we could wait until June to use to air conditioning, but we caved, and I am glad we did. It’s hard to find the motivation to do anything when you are covered in sweat.
For mothers day we drank margaritas (with home made margarita mix, the best!), listened to Herb Alpert (our favorite), and got things done around the house.
Today, realizing early that it would be even hotter than yesterday, I decided to make an enormous pitcher of our margarita mix so we can keep it on hand in the fridge for the next few days. I also pulled together a delicious quinoa, black bean, and avocado salad with cilantro and lime (also with chopped tomatoes, red bell pepper, jalapeño, green onions, garlic, salt and pepper. Chop everything, and refrigerate. So, so good, try it!).
