Drink - Maxarita 2 oz Tequila (Cuervo is best) 1 ½ oz Roses Lime ½ oz of Triple Sec ½ oz of Grand Marnier (any orange liqueur will do…really…and cheaper) Squeeze a wedge of fresh lime…really important!!!  Mixologist MAX GUZMAN - I prefer to put all the ingredients in an ice shaker. Fill the ice shaker about half full of ice and add the ingredients. Shake it all up and serve. Of course, the portions can be tweaked for your own preference…two drink? Double it! Enjoy!! Have two and it makes your clothes fall off! Not responsible!!!!  
Dessert - Mother’s Day Strawberry Pie 1 cup sugar, 1 pint strawberries sliced, 1 cup water, 1 9in deep-dish frozen pie crust baked, 2 Tbsp cornstarch, whipped cream topping ( cool whip, etc.), 3 Tbsp strawberry jello, 4 oz cream cheese softened Combine sugar, water and cornstarch; cook over medium high heat until mixture boils and thickens. Remove from heat and add jello. Cool while preparing sliced berries. Spread cream cheese in bottom of pie shell and top with berries. Cover with strawberry jello mixture. Allow to chill at least one hour before serving. Top with whipped topping. 
Main Dish - Tomato Pie 1 unbaked 9 inch pie shell (I use deep dish) 2 cups chopped tomatoes 1/4 tsp salt 1 tsp. fresh basil, cut in thin strips 1/4 tsp. lemon pepper 4 oz. reduced calorie sharp cheddar cheese shredded, 1/2 cup mayonnaise 1 oz. grated parmesan cheese Bake empty pie shell at 350 degrees for 5-6 minutes. Do not brown. Combine next 4 ingredients and place in pie shell. Mix cheddar cheese with mayonnaise and spoon over the tomatoes. Sprinkle parmesan cheese. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. DELICIOUS!!! This is a recipe I have made many times, many different ways. Tips to try: I use much more lemon pepper and omit the regular salt. I don't measure anything. I use much more basil, because we love it and have more in our herb spot. I mix the parmesan with cheddar and mayo. It always tastes great! ENJOY!! 
Drink - Fruit Cocktail small portion container of fruit cocktail, 4OZ Vodka, 1OZ Banana Liquor, juice of 1 lime Serves two. Put all contents in a shaker half full of ice. Shake and strain liquid into two glasses. Split the ice and fruit between the two glasses with a spoon. Healthy Drink. Don't you think? 
Dessert - 3-2-1 Cake 1 box Angel-food Cake, 1 box Cake of your choice (I used yellow) When you want a quick treat this is great. Dry mix the two box cake mixes and store in zip lock bag. Then when you want a little cake take 3 tablespoons of the cake mix. Put it in a silicone muffin cup or something similar. Add 2 tablespoons of water. stir a little. Microwave for 1 minute. Optional - add strawberries and whipped cream. 
Side Dish - German Cole Slaw 2 lbs. cabbage, shredded (12 cups) 2 large onions, sliced and separated (I usually cut the rings in 1/2)  PLACE layer of cabbage and layer of onions in bowl, 2 times Next HEAT together the following: 1 cup sugar 1 cup vinegar (I use tarragon) 1 Tb. salt 1 tsp. celery seed 1 tsp. dry mustard 1/4 tsp. pepper (I use large grind) Bring ingredients to a boil and add 1 cup salad oil (I do not use olive oil).Pour hot mixture slowly over the cabbage and onions. Do not stir. Cover and let stand in the refrigerator for 24 hours. (less marinating hours work OK, too)
