Spicy Summer Squash

Summer squash is most definitely on my “Top 3 Favorite Veggies” list, right alongside zucchini and brussels sprouts.  Because all normal people keep lists of their fave veggies, right?  In any case, this recipe is a kicked-up version of one my mom made for us growing up, that I OBVIOUSLY loved (see “Top 3 Favorite Veggies” list above).  You’ll dig it, too.

Watermelon-Jalapeno Margaritas

I can honestly say that I’ve NEVER gotten tired of tequila.  Not once.  Even after a few rough Cinco de Mayos.
