Happy May 5th! On this date, a celebration occurs based on the VICTORY the Mexican Army had over France at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862. And a blah blah blibidy blah! Hey listen, I am not knocking the victory…no way José, but for me (and other foodies I’m sure) Cinco de Mayo means a delicious Mexican FIESTA!!
You’ll soon realize that I appreciate any holiday when we can eat delicious food, especially foods from another culture. So please don’t take offense :o)
With that said, I hope you all decide to do something special for this Mexican celebration. Maybe head out to your nearest taqueria or even simply make some tacos at home with your stored away emergency Ortego taco kit. How about you do a little something extra and make some homemade guacamole or pico de gallo? And don’t forget that margarita! Maybe even a virgin margarita for the kiddos?
Tonight Dan and I are celebrating with friends at El Sarapé in Blue Bell, PA. A review is sure to come!
