Que Dia es Hoy?

Do you know what day it is?

I know I just asked you that a few short days ago, but today happens to be an awesome day!

It is the day a tiny Mexican army defeated a huge French army that hadn't been defeated on more than 50 years.

It is a day to celebrate the culture and heritage of the Mexican people.

It is Cinco De Mayo

I know, I know.

I am not Mexican.

But do you remember how I have said (on many different occasions) give me a reason to celebrate, and I will do it?

Well, this here is a great reason to celebrate, and by gum, celebrate we will.

For the festivities today we are going to have a delicious agua de melon which is one of my all time favorite drinks.

Basically you get a cantaloupe, blend it up, sieve it (if you want) into a pitcher full of sugar and water, and enjoy it.

I have some fresh mint growing in my back yard, I think I will use that as a garnish.

For dinner we are going to have:

Chips and salsa (of course) and some sort of Mexican dish.

I am thinking tostadas with crema and queso fresco on top with a side of frijoles.

I am also thinking of making some chocoflan for dessert.

Or, we could be classic, and just have fruit sprinkled with chili powder.


We are not doing a pinata, since I didn't get one put together before now, but we will be dancing, and partying it up all night long!

Want to come?
