    Oh my god you’re my spirit animal. I just noticed the tunas (as they say) were ripe up here in CO and I have decided I need to go picking… NOW I have a recipe. MWAHAHAHAH. I can’t wait.

    Ha! I’ve been watching your hiking pics on fb and enjoying the mountain scenery. I’m glad you strain the pulp because what if you MISS a tiny spine, and then try to drink it? THAT would be a horrid way to die – by margarita spine!

    I’ve missed you terribly! And what if you fell into a ditch full of vipers..that would kill you. Probably.

    I also want a drink and it’s 6:42 in the morning.

    I’m pretty sure you weren’t invited to the first prickly pear party because you were dead. We didn’t think to invite you to the wake but I wish we had served these. Yum! Glad you are risen and have been so productive in your absence.

    I’m not good with the tech, and my email doesn’t seem to want to do anything, lately, but I have checked this blog almost every day to see if you had a new post!

    I’m just now realizing we never got around to making said delicious margaritas when I was home last! Save some syrup for Christmas!

    How far is Albuquerque from Denver? I need to come over. This looks amazing. But I am WAY too lazy to blowtorch my cocktails.

    Hi Jana: Like Lizzi we’ve been watching your hiking ventures and beautiful pics and figured you were on a walk-about. lol How’s the coyote by the way? 😉 Okay…as for the Prickly Pear Margarita’s holy shit!!! That sounds freaking delish!! I can’t wait to show Inion this. She seen Prickly Pears used on the cooking show Chopped and fell in love with them. We can’t get them here so we’ll have to head to your place for a girls margarita night. Love the pics and sharing them now!! 😉 xoxo

    I’m not a huge fan of tequila (hope we can still be friends) but thanks for the tutorial on getting the fruit because I’d love to make jelly out of it. I hadn’t heard of these little tuna things either until I moved to AZ this year.

If you don't comment, then I'm just talking to myself -- and I do too much of that already.
