he, he Sandy, you're in fine form today!! Since we're getting Paulitical here, I'm ready to start my Friday happy hour early with a tasty Cosmo-paul-itan!! The colour of it reminds me a little of the margarita I had with Luigi last week at a restaurant overlooking Denver. It was a prickly pear margarita in almost that same shade of pink. A very tasty treat indeed!!


I received the cookbook from this restaurant for Christmas and was fondly reminded of the time when friend Luigival and I enjoyed a prickly pear margarita on the deck, overlooking the Front Range and Denver. Those were the heavenly days!!

So many lovely ideas! You really inspired me a lot! Another thing I want to do before I die is to spend a week in the mountains running about with bare feet.....maybe I´ll do that in September......but I don´t have planned to die afterwards  Grin.....
