This Weeks Eats 5.25.14

Like I mentioned with Indian food, there are some things that just seem to taste so much better at a restaurant.  Tex-Mex food is something we make at home quite a bit.  And vodka drinks are something I can get behind at home.  But, for whatever reason, homemade margaritas are not my bag.  It probably has something to to with the degree of difficulty in juicing so. many. limes.  Our favorite date night marg destination makes a tamarind flavored one with a cinnamon sugar rim.  It's a bit over the top, and I usually switch to a beer or another straight up marg with dinner, but they're oh sooooo good.

I don't take a ton of selfies, but the margarita pic has become a bit of a tradition!  There's even one in my header above.  If you're in the Seattle area, I highly recommend trying out The Matador

Also, if you've ever seen that confetti cake dip that makes the rounds on Pinterest, my mother in law made it with the kids this weekend.  If you really love eating frosting, then I suppose I could recommend it, haha!  

It's one tub of cool whip (lite is fine), two cups of vanilla yogurt and a box of confetti cake mix combined.  It was great for dipping apples and graham crackers.  I think I'd try it again but with a couple tablespoons of honey and some sprinkles instead of all that sorta nasty cake mix, which could also be good over granola or topped with berries...

As always, I'm linking up with Org Junkie, Mommy Run Fast and Jill Conyers - be sure to check out all the great weekly menus!
