Friday Night Dates :: Week 34

I'm inviting romance into my life
one Friday Night Date at a time
and documenting each one here on my little ol' blog.

I want to remember every detail
of these splendid home spun dates.

Date #34



<span class=

This was a fun date night.
The Strawberry Daiquiri was so sweet
and so were the laughs that we had together.

Sometimes I think that a good laugh session
can be sexy and romantic.

There is something to be said for
a shared sense of humour.

Here are the recipes...

Basil Guacamole

Ingredients:
2 avocados, peeled and seeded
1 small tomato (I prefer Brandywine), diced
1 tiny red onion, diced (I used the baby-sized onions from my garden—about the size of a tea bag)
Juice from one lime (don’t skimp here—this stuff makes a delightful tang that enhances the whole dish)
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 teaspoons hot sauce
2 Tablespoons basil, julienned (chopped finely)

Mash the avocado with a fork. Add the remaining ingredients and stir together. Serve with organic blue corn tortilla chips. Or, eat by the spoonfuls.

Strawberry Daiquiri

Ingredients

  • 6 cups ice
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 4 ounces frozen strawberries
  • 1/8 cup lime juice
  • 1/2 cup lemon juice
  • 3/4 cup rum
  • 1/4 cup lemon-lime flavored carbonated beverage

Directions

  1. In a blender, combine ice, sugar and strawberries. Pour in lime juice, lemon juice, rum and lemon-lime soda. Blend until smooth. Pour into glasses and serve.

Any romance for you over the weekend?

You always have the most delicious sounds food and drinks. I'm impressed. So much more romantic than a bottle of wine and popcorn.
