I’m not Mexican (or French), but I still love to celebrate Cinco de Mayo. So funny how we have glommed onto that holiday and made it one of our own here in the U.S.
What are you making? Us? Well, I have some Springer Mountain Farms chicken thawing out so I can toss it into my favorite Cilantro Citrus marinade for tacos. We’re cracking open a fresh coconut to drink before dinner. ($1.99 at Sunflower yesterday. Should’ve bought more than one.) With dinner we’re having some Strawberry Agua Fresca, traditional Brazilian rice and beans (because that’s the only way the hubby likes it), homemade corn tortillas, and maybe if I get very ambitious we’ll have a fancy dessert made from the coconut cream I brought back from Hawaii topped with fresh pineapple.
And most likely the kids will want some quesadillas.
