Friday Food – Cinco de Mayo


I know that Cinco de Mayo is one of those consumer filled holidays that Americans don’t even know what they’re celebrating, but the food is so good, especially if you can find an authentic Mexican restaurant (which fortunately, we have.)

These are my three favorite Mexican dishes. I do go back and forth with what favorite places I like, but Mexican holds a special place in my heart. My husband and I went on our first date at a Mexican restaurant, and the service was so slow that we were there for at least two hours. Lots of time to talk. I also think we each thought the other one really liked Mexican food, which it turned out that we did, whether we knew it or not.
