Welcome to our Happy Friday Night! Almost every Friday night I make an appetizer and cocktail for my husband and me to enjoy after the kids are in bed. It's a nice way to enjoy the end of the week without having to pay a babysitter.
I made pumpkin margaritas for our cocktail last week.
In a blender mix 2oz tequila, 2oz sweet and sour mix, 4oz pumpkin liqueur, and 2 cups of ice (makes 2 generous drinks). Blend until smooth. It definitely tasted like a margarita, but it could have been a bit more pumpkiny for me...my husband thought it was great the way it was though.
I made loaded nachos for our appetizer (it sufficed for dinner!)
I browned some lean ground beef, drained it and seasoned it with some cumin, salt, and chili powder. Then I layered nacho scoops in a cake pan and topped them with the ground beef, black beans, salsa, and cheese and put it in a 350 degree oven until the cheese melted. I served them with sour cream, tomatoes, and fresh guacamole.
Happy Friday Night!
