Plum Pineapple Margarita

I’ve been hoarding plums from my kids. Isn’t that horrible?  Tiny piles, stashed near the fridge, next to the basket of potatoes where I know they would never look.

There I said it. Out loud. I’m a plum hoarder.

The thing is I picked up a few plums at the grocery store last week.  And they were SO juicy, plump and sweet I knew I just had to make a margarita.  

The next day they were ALL GONE.  All of them, what? This happened three times over the course of the last week. KIDS!

So late Sunday night I headed to the store in my raggedy jeans, along with my little sister and went plum picking, again.

Then I went home and HID them, all of them.  Last night I retrieved my hidden plums and preceded to assemble my juicer when I heard tiny footsteps, and there they were.. these kids… I swear.

What’s a plum hoarder to do? Give in and share. Can you blame them? They are SO juicy, plump and sweet.

Mother of the year I tell you.

Lucky for them I had half of a pineapple to throw into the mix and guess what? It made the margarita even better.  A sweet cotton candy shade of pink swirled with a pop of pineapple.  OH yes, so sweet!

Plum hoarding is overrated.  Enjoy!

    One of my favorite poems is about plums. A man sneaks into the kitchen at night to eat the plums his wife has been keeping in her refrigerator. Thank you for sharing the margarita and the lovely lovely pictures.
