What's for Dinner Tuesday, May 5, 2009 (Cinco de Mayo)?

Since tomorrow is Cinco de Mayo, here in SoCal many of us are already getting ready for tomorrow's festivities. I'm making Menudo, of course, and I still have a bowl full of key limes from the tree and a box of kosher salt, so I'm ready for tequila.

Are you doing anything special for the Mexican holiday?

As soon as I get home tonight I will start a big pot of Frijoles Borrachos... I'll post the recipe for everyone in the morning.
It will go something like: "One for me... and one for my pintos."

Does everybody know that Cinco de Mayo is not really a national holiday in Mexico? I didn't know that before I moved here...Mexico's real Independence Day is September 16. Here's the scoop: Cinco de Mayo - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Our Spanish teacher claims that the holiday was originally promoted in the US by Miller Lite in order to sell beer during a month when beer sales are often low...don't know about that. But any excuse for cooking good Mexican food is fine by me! We are going to a friend's birthday party tomorrow night, so I don't know what we'll be eating - except for the carrot cake, which I am bringing.

My dinner is not going to be all that fancy, because I have to work and not much time to make an authentic dinner.

I'm going to have breaded chicken breasts, topped with salsa and Pepper Jack cheese and baked. On the side, brown rice with diced tomato and green onion.
