When it's in the mid to upper 90s in Chicago...

It must be time for the Taste of Chicago! Yes that is right tomorrow me and a great friend are venturing downtown for the Sweat of Chicago...I mean Taste of Chicago. It's been a few years and wisely this time we are going w/o kids or cranky hubbies that would rather not stand in line to get a taste of eli's cheesecake.

I hope it will be a tad cooler by the lake, fingers crossed for a nice lake breeze! I have already checked out the taste portions the taste you can get a few full sized items...or a bunch of different 'taste' portions...kind of like a mini tapas that is what I'll be doing..I must have....the perogi taste, a chop salad taste, a pad thai taste, and a spinach pizza taste. And if I have some tickets left over...a big frozen drink?

If Tastefully Simple was at the Taste of Chicago I am sure a nice Prickly Pear Margarita would be an enormous hit!

1 1/2 Cups Prickly Pear Cooler Prepared
2 1/2 Cups of Crushed Ice
4-6 oz tequila
Blend and Serve w/some glassed rimmed w/koser salt.
