Hello T Gang ladies and any other visitors. It is Tuesday again (and already). Time for T.
Stop by Bleubeard and Elizabeth's blog and join as we share our drink related photos.
Last weekend seemed to be a birthday celebration weekend for me. No, it was not my birthday.
On Friday after work we had a little get together for one of my colleagues who turned 50 at New Years. Our group hadn't gotten together outside of work for quite some time, so it was fun to have a chance to chat and socialize.
In this restaurant where we met was a specialty tequila bar. And you might know I like a good margarita. So even though they were twice as costly as most Mexican places charge, I ordered one. So did 3 of my other co-workers. And oh my goodness, it was horrible! The worse margarita I have ever had. My co-workers had the same thoughts too. I certainly won't order one if I ever go back there, but I don't think I will be rushing back.
And then on Saturday we had my Mother-in-law's 85th birthday. She isn't doing all that well, so my sister-in-law (with whom my MIL lives with now) had the whole immediate family over for lunch.
I was most surprised when my sister-in-law asked if I would make the birthday cake. Her husband is a professional pastry chef, and I just assumed he would make the cake. But he didn't have time, so she asked me.
I felt a little bit like I had to make it special.
And it came out really good too. It was devil's food filled with a white chocolate espresso ganache and with a vanilla buttercream. (No calories in this cake either-ha-ha!)
I got the 2 thumbs up from the pastry chef.
And it was a good time to take some family photos too. You can see my husband and I were getting ready for Sunday's football game as we were wearing out team shirts. (And you can tell it was a really cold day with my big sweater under my football shirt.)
And then there was a photo of the granddaughters (except one who was away at college) and their beaus.
And of course since it is T Day I need to show you my drink. Back when I went to Vermont in early December I had tried a drink called a holiday daiquiri. Well my brother-in-law the pastry chef managed to replicate the drink and so I had one.
Way better than margarita!
Wishing you all a happy T day!
And thanks for visiting.
