I am always so shocked every darned morning when I see myself in the mirror, I have way too many wrinkles! It can be depressing some days. But not today….not after I saw Larry Hagman. He has aged! Of course, he is in his 80s now!
Do you remember the season ending murder attempt in the March 21, 1980 "A House Divided" episode All summer long everyone wondered “Who Shot JR?” You don’t remember? You probably weren’t born yet! Here is Larry Hagman’s favorite scene….of course…. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jhE1ev61Ofk
It was definitely what they call a Cliff Hanger!
The new Dallas is very good, full of the oil business, the cattle business, and plenty of monkey business! But, as I said, the original cast members have definitely aged…but then, so have I. As for the new cast members…young good looking men, gorgeous women. The young men cast as JR’s and Bobby’s sons are perfect for the parts. Chips off the old blocks!
So, today Dallas was enjoyed with wine. In 1980, I didn’t drink wine, but I did drink a very popular drink of that era….the Frozen Daiquiri. It was so simple, so tart, so cold!
This recipe makes six servings.
1 (12 fluid ounce) can frozen limeade concentrate
12 fluid ounces rum
1 tray ice cubes
(You can tell this is an old recipe! A TRAY of ice cubes! Today, I'd say about 21/2 to3 cups of ice.)
In a blender, combine limeade concentrate, rum and ice cubes. Blend until smooth. Pour into glasses and serve immediately.
