Thirsty Thursday #7

For this week’s TT, I thought I would share an email my Dad sent last week (and very appropriate for TT!):

Interview with 101 year-old Hattie Mae MacDonald of Teague , Kentucky :

Reporter: Can you give us some health tips for reaching the age of 101?

Hattie: For better digestion I drink beer. In the case of appetite loss I drink white wine. For low blood pressure I drink red wine. In the case of high blood pressure I drink Scotch. And when I have a cold I drink Schnapps.

Reporter: When do you drink water?

Hattie: I’ve never been that sick

🙂

Of course, TT wouldn’t be complete without a picture, so here’s something for low blood pressure: Chateau St. Jean Cabernet Sauvignon, alongside some amazing fried calamari (which is probably not so good for low blood pressure!). Fortunately for my blood pressure, I drank more wine than I ate calamari 🙂

Margarita Monday, Part Cuatro

I wasn’t actually planning on Margarita Monday to be a regular thing, but I figured what the heck–who doesn’t like margaritas?!?!?  Also, if you’d like a picture of your tasty margarita to appear here for Margarita Mondays, please tweet it to me @epicurioustexan!

In honor of today’s Big Birthday: Not 40, Just Fabulous, I thought it appropriate to honor this Margarita Monday with my cranberry margarita from Chevy’s during my Birthday Trip #2 (because when you’re turning Not 40, Just Fabulous, you get multiple birthday trips!).

Expresso

As in the funniest part of this fabulous diagram, not the actual abomination of a mispronounced word. Inquiring minds want to know: what does your coffee say about you?

Me? Depending on my mood, I’m a triple espresso or black coffee kind of girl, although every great once in awhile, my friends have to remind me to wipe the foam off my lip…
