The Friday Ritual, A Mango Margarita, and An Award

Most Fridays my Husband and  I have a Friday Ritual to kick off the weekend, if we aren't going out for the evening.  We have fresh guacamole, ground turkey, browned, and I have a Mango Margarita.  My husband has his dark rum.  I love anything mango, drinks, salads, grilled, in baked goods, and especially  a home made, fresh, mango margarita.. There are really very few ingredients and it can be made quickly. So, here we go, and get your cocktail shaker ready. 

Fill your cocktail shaker 2/3 full of crushed ice. Peel and dice 1 ripe mango.  A mango is ripe when it turns ruby red and soft to the touch. Place diced mango in a pan and use an immersion blender or regular blender to puree. One half of large mango, pureed is enough for one drink.  In cocktail shaker squeeze juice of a lime
wedge,. add 1 to 1/12 shots of good tequila, 1 shot of Triple Sec, and half of mango puree.  Put top and shaker and do a happy dance, because it's Friday.   Now,  most people like salt on the rims of their margarita
glasses.  I don't like salt, so I don't do that,  but if you like the salt on your glass, do it now. Then pour   Margarita in to the glass and enjoy, It's Friday, TGIF!

I was very fortunate and surprised to receive this award from Christiane, from Taking on Recipes One Magazine At a Time.  Christiane was my guest blogger a couple of weeks ago.   For those of you who don't know about her,  please check out her blog. She has  a wonderful style, writing  from her heart, and sprinkled with humor, especially when she writes about "adventures with her daughter,  I humbly accept this award, Christiane, and " Thank you " for considering me worthy of the award and your friendship. Also, thank you to all my blogger friends, who all mean so much to me.  I want to especially thank Monet, for commenting on my blog during her family crisis, as many of you know, is such a difficult time for her and her family. 

Here are the rules of the award:
1. Accept the award. Post it on your blog with the name of the person who has granted the award and his or her blog link, and thank them.
2. Pay it forward to 15 other bloggers, whose bogs you admire.
3. Contact those blog owners and let them know they’ve been chosen.

So with the formalities out of the way, I'm passing this award on to the the following  fifteen wonderful blogger friends.
