¡Hola mis amigos! Due to crazy work schedules and a poor showing for dinner on May 5, I postponed my Cinco de Mayo fiesta dinner for today, the sixth of May.
¡Ay, caramba! A chica's gotta do what a chica's gotta do.
And while our celebration was nothing extravagant, we enjoyed our meal con mucho gusto.
Taco shells, refried beans, mole sauce, salsa, green onions, seasoned ground beef,
corn, black beans,
seasoned steak, grilled red peppers and mushrooms, cheddar cheese,
and a big bed of mixed greens, topped with green chiles, for the no-carb kid.
I wouldn't have minded downing a few of these insanely stuffed tacos.
And it just goes to show what can happen when feisty, determined people take up a shared cause.
We celebrate these Mexican beacons of hope and positive thinking with our tacos and cervezas frias. Vaya con Dios, neighbors, and please pass the salsa!
