A sweltering 39 degrees today (102 in the old money!) Naturally someone ran over all of the new sprinklers I had put in to replace the old sprinklers someone had run over and so had to replace them all again. Nothing like a face full of bore water at 7.00am trying to adjust the spray direction and then a giant fountain of water falling on my head when the whole sprinkler shot off. At least it was cool. I was lucky I didn’t lose an eye (or my head)!
I can see the headlines…”Fool loses head in idiotic attempt to fix own sprinkler system.”
Anyhoo! It is too darn hot and we are holding out to Saturday for a cool change.
At least it gives us an excuse to drink gin and tonics and experiment with margaritas.
Is there anyone out there who can actually tell me what the proper recipe for a margarita is? It seems there are huge numbers of variations out there all claiming to be it. It seems to have something to do with tequila, Cointreau and lime/lemon juice but after that anything seems to go. Please do share your recipe in the comments if you can shed any light on this mysterious beverage.
Hope you are at the temperature you like best!
