Well, as you might expect, datecation is delicious. But I’m not going to lie; I wanted to impress with my first home-cooked meal. So last night I got into the July “Cooking Light” for dinner inspiration.
First, the fish tacos!
- I thawed frozen tilapia filets in water for a half hour, sprinkled them with Old Bay seasoning and salt and pepper, and then cooked them in butter on the stove top!
- Then all they needed was fruit salsa (Target’s pineapple and peach salsa was delicious), lettuce, sour cream, and a tortilla.
These were really, really good. I have actually never had fish tacos, but I am definitely going to start having them more often!
The real fun started when I decided to blend that bottle of Patron with some fruit and make watermelon margaritas, also from “Cooking Light.”
- I put three cups of cubed watermelon, three tablespoons of lime juice, three tablespoons of sugar, one tablespoon of triple sec, and a cup of tequila (my quantity, not the magazine’s) in the blender and hit it!
- Then I wet the glass rims with a lime and then rolled them in sugar. Then I filled them with ice and poured in the marg!
I’m not going to say I love a drink where you can’t taste the alcohol…but I love when you can’t taste the alcohol! Even doubling the amount of tequila, it just tasted like a delicious, light drink, reminiscent of a watermelon Jolly Rancher! Can you say drink, drank, drunk? Actually, despite the extra booze, I didn’t get drunk. Just happy! Everything was fast an easy, light and fresh…basically a perfect summer meal!
(And I think I hooked him.)
