Made yummy tostadas at home.

Happy Birthday MOM!! (my son's birthday is tomorrow!)

I've always regretted I didn't firmly establish the tradition my sister started with her family: on their birthday, the kids gave Mom a present too!!

The Residence Center my partner's mom lives in is having a "special lunch" so will be joining her there.... (Any excuse to make the day a standout for the Seniors!!)

I doubt the Margaritas will be too strong(!) emoticon which is fine by me!

MEOWZY -- That is what I have heard, that Mexicans aren't big on this day down south of our border. I am not entirely clear about why this has taken off up north of the border... Mexican restaurants (most FAR from authentic) are being packed this weekend.

Yep, there I am, swimming through the desert sands. Might just be a mirage, after all. But this is life, and we learn best about it if we explore it, and take our chances. A life unexplored, after all, is one of the saddest things out there.

Up until a few years ago I celebrated every Cinco de Mayo working events, but now I just note the day and take a walk and weigh-in!

I agree it seems it is mostly celebrated in the US but whatever, t'is a nice tradition.

My husband and I have always celebrated it. When we first started dating, the local Mexican place was our favorite place to go. Cinco de Mayo is really an American holiday. ;) It was brought over by Mexican immigrants a very long time ago, and isn't celebrated nearly as much there as here. It's celebrating a very local, regional battle.

Unfortunately though, the primary focus is alcohol, and my husband is an alcoholic trying to make it to recovery, so heading out to a margarita-soaked celebration would be extremely bad. I'm disappointed that we have to break a 15 year tradition, but his health and sanity is more important.

So this year, we're making fajitas at home. :) Probably healthier (and a whole lot cheaper) anyway!

We make a Mexican Food dinner which includes Fish Tacos, Sweet Corn Tamales, my fresh home-made Pico de Gallo and refried beans, rice, and of course Margs.

Feliz Cinco de Mayo!

I made a huge pot of sopa de pollo with tons of veggies in it. So healthy and delicious! I'll get lunches out of it all week, too. Never get tired of this soup!

If you're tired of starting over, stop giving up!

Blessed are the flexible, for they shall not be bent out of shape.

Or will you pay it any mind?

I won't be going out for it (Mexican restaurants are annoying madhouses this weekend), but I'll be making hamburger sliders seasoned with Mexican spices such as chili, and will eat them accompanied by sweet potatoes and greens. If I am ambitious enough I may even fire up the grill.
