Our friends just left after a delicious lunch of tamales, rice, beans, and Margaritas. Our friends brought Prickly Pear Margaritas. My first time to sample these wonderful drinks. They harvest the prickly pear fruit and process it into a juice. From the juice she makes prickly pear jelly and uses the juice for margaritas. They were delicious. Here is a link to a prickly pear treats site.
Oh by the way we had lunch outside on the patio. What a wonderful time to live in the desert!
Wishing each of you a Merry Christmas with family and friends.
