Cinco de Mayo dinner plans? (Sat 5/5/12)

Okay I know the day is to be celebrated with Mexican but I am sorely lacking Mexican ingredients right now and don't feel like going to the store on a Saturday. I have a ham in fridge waiting to be cooked so I think it will be ham with mac'n'cheese and green beans for supper here.


I could give up chocolate but I'm no quitter!

We are out of most good ingredients, including pretty much anything Mexican, so I'm still not sure what we will be eating tonight. It may be hot dogs and the Blue Box tonight, along with broccoli.

We are off to SO's sister's for a combined Cinco de Mayo/Kentucky Derby party. Maybe we'll make combo mint julip/margaritas.

Authentic Mexican Restaurant: Todo a Mexico

We are going for dinner with long time expat friends from all over the globe, that we know many years.

The owner, restaurateur, author and chef, Ventura Rocha Criolla is one of our dear friends, and he was the 1st Mexican to open a Mexican restaurant on European soil ... ( 1950s )

Have nice evening,

We went out for Mexican for brunch today. No idea yet what dinner will be. Most likely takeout, since we have a lot going on this afternoon.
