T is for: Tuna Tartare Tacos with Mango & Avocado

My friend Stephanie celebrated her 30th birthday last weekend and kicked off the day of festivities with a BBQ at her place.

I asked what I could bring, and she put me in charge of bringing an appetizer of some sort.

That left my options pretty wide open, so I decided to make something that I could also share on the blog.

I've been wanting to do some sort of tuna tartare for awhile, and I felt like this was a perfect opportunity. It's a nice appetizer for a hot day because it's served cold and is very light to contrast with the heavier BBQ fare.

Plus... who doesn't love mini tacos of any sort?!?

T is for: Tequila Sunrise Jello Shots

Last weekend, my friends Ashley and Matt decided to host the inaugural Backyard Olympics at their house. (AKA drinking and playing lawn games in the sun). I asked what I could bring, and they both responded with the same answer:

"Jello Shots."

Well duh.

It was about 85 degrees that day, so I wanted to make something fun, summery and refreshing. (And also something that started with "T" so I could post it on the blog).

(Double duh).

Enter these Tequila Sunrise Jello Shots, complete with multi-functional drink umbrellas. It's basically summer all wrapped up into a miniature, disposable shot glass.
