Have a good time YT! I'm torn between houmous and veg and making some pita bread and going out.....we did not go out last night and I feel that we should keep celebrations going for the whole weekend! On the other hand, I'm winding down the fridge before we leave for our holiday and taking cats to UK.....I think that can start tomorrow though :)

no idea, probably order in some such thing. or I'll walk across the street and hit Big Eats at the Holiday Inn. I know they have great salads and baked tates that I may go for. so far, sleep is waaaay more important to me today.

i was going to try out a new pizza sauce recipe today but yesterday i remember today is cinco de mayo and I love mexican food, so in honor of that I shall go all out.

My wife is a pansy when it comes to spicy food and not a huge fan of the Tex Mex arena so I will have to make a seperate batch for her as I want to make it on my terms :)

I will be making chicken tacos. The chicken will be marinated in beer, probably Corona and a southwestern marinade.

When I cook the chicken I will use a taco seasoning, not a whole packet because I dont like it very satly but instead of using water I will substitute that with beer and throw in some more marinade for some spice. The chicken will be cooked with the usual peppers, green, red and yellow and probably a jalapano or a two.

I will also make some spanish rice to with this and some refired beans.
