a margarita for Christmas? not quite apple cider. not quite egg nog. and not quite what you were expecting. but let’s mix things up a bit at the end of this year. ’cause if you’re feeling at all like i am, i know there’s a lot of change coming in 2020.
and change is a good thing: big or small. you may be looking to change careers. or potentially retire. you may move to a new town. or you may just change your outlook. whatever it is, you’ll be better than fine, because you’re, well, you. so let’s start small today: raise your Christmas margaritas, because here’s to fridays with oscar. and more importantly, here’s to you.
roasted squash is a personal favorite of mine. i’m putting a slight spin on it today by stuffing it with beef, cranberries and spices. but the recipe remains simple, straightforward and easy to make. whether you’re hosting a holiday lunch or looking for a quick bite on a Saturday afternoon, reach for this recipe.
i just love the sweet and spicy flavor combination. if you do too, or if you’re looking to break out of the holiday same old same old, make sure to check out this week’s cocktail: a blackberry margarita. the bite of the jalapenos is offset nicely by the sweetness of the blackberries. pair that with a traditional salt rim, and you’re running the full flavor spectrum.
alright gang, that’s a wrap! as we approach the holiday home stretch, remember to always take a deep breath and always give yourself a few extra minutes of alone time. if that means getting up 10 minutes earlier to enjoy a quiet moment with your cup of coffee or staying up 30 minutes later to finish The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, do it.
