It was a hot day yesterday, and the boys and I were playing outside for the better part of it. What better way to cool off and relax after a day in the sun than with an ice cold glass of Margarita Sangria? This sangria is loaded with citrus, with a hint of margarita flavor too. Mix this up early in the day, stick it in the fridge, and you have the perfect cocktail ready to go with any summer meal! You can see the recipe below, but first I owe you a pantry organization update! You may remember that I outed my disaster of a pantry a couple weeks ago. I promised to reform and show you my progress, and I’m excited to show you the HUGE improvement I made! I’ve managed to keep it nice and tidy for a couple weeks, so I feel confident that I can keep it going. Using the childproof latch to keep The Short One from ransacking the place definitely helps with that!
To clean this mess up, first I pulled everything out and threw out old food. There wasn’t really that much that needed to go; it mostly just needed to be organized. I purchased a few large plastic containers and bins and a label maker to get the pantry under control. The Tall One’s reaction to the label maker was how I think we all feel when we get such a fun gadget: “Let’s label everything in the house!” Needless to say, the label maker is stored very high out of the kids’ reach. So now, here is the reveal of the dramatically improved Weary Chef’s pantry! *drumroll please*
I might try one of those stairstep things for the cans, but for now just having them all together is a big improvement. What’s that you say? What about the refrigerator? Well, about that… I did clean and organize the fridge too, BUT I haven’t scrubbed down all the shelves and drawers yet. I am dreading that because it’s a big job, but as soon as I get it done I will show you refrigerator pictures too! Now, back to the margarita sangria. I’m sure you will enjoy this recipe! Cheers!
