Noodles (or not) with a Tequila Chaser

November 27, 2007

I can’t even get through Day One without screwing it up. Just call me Eliot Spitzer.

I was headed to the gym after work, running about 10 minutes behind schedule (par for my course). When I arrived at the gym, there was not one parking space in the whole lot. Seriously. I’m not just making up excuses. SO – I figured I’d better just go and get something for dinner before my 6:30pm appointment. I neglected to plan ahead, so ended up getting a salad at a place called Nothing but Noodles (the irony of my food order does not escape me). I hate salad. Even more than I hate tequila (which I don’t hate anymore, incidentally. See my recipe below. Apparently we were just drinking really baaaad tequila in college – duh).

I didn’t get done with my appointment until 8:00, and there’s no way I’m going to the gym two hours before bed.

SO – I’m back to Day One tomorrow. Unlike Gov. Spitzer, I get a do-over.

Recipe of the Day:

A Simply Awesome Margarita

  • Juice of one lime
  • 1.5oz Sauza Hornitos Reposada tequila
  • 1oz triple sec liqueur
  • a splash of orange juice

Add to ice in shaker; shake until your fingers freeze. Pour into salted or unsalted margarita glass (or coffee mug, whichever’s handy), and garnish with a squeeze of lime. Drink responsibly.

Wendalicious Must-Buy:

Italian Sausage Seasoning from Penzey’s. It makes 99% fat-free ground turkey taste like sausage – honestly. It’s a miracle spice blend.

    My guess is that it would be just fine with venison. I’ve had venison sausage before.
    My dad offered me some venison this weekend, but I turned it down.

    Seriously, was any of the liquor imbibed during college GOOD? I swear my aversion to drinking in college was really due to the America’s Beast beer that was so prominent…
