Birthday Celebration

No margaritas, but we still had a good time!

(If you're wondering, I haven't fallen off the face of the Earth; I'm just suffering from blog malaise.)

Last Saturday, my friend Nancy came over for her birthday dinner. She was in the mood for citrus flavors and Mexican cuisine, so I made:

Sparkling Sangria Blanca (sangria blanca mix with champagne)
Damn fine Guacamole served with Santitas-brand tortilla chips
Fish tacos and fresh salsa
Spanish rice
Roasted corn, jicama, and mango salad
Easy Lemon Mousse with blueberries and shortbread
As a little party favor, Nancy took home a half dozen brown sugar chocolate chip cookies wrapped in white parchment and tied with a pretty ribbon.

At the end of the evening, we were stuffed and satisfied. Happy Birthday, Nance!
