5 De Mayo

Yesterday, as you all know, here in Mexico - um I mean California it was the 5th of May (Cinco De Mayo for all you non-spanish speakers out there). So Michael and I took the opportunity to join in the celebration of the anniversary of the day when the French (Freedom Fries!) were defeated by the Mexican army. It was a delicious day.

Aaaaaa Ahh Ahh Ahh!!!! Michael in full celebration mode (my sombrero is good for so many things).

The magical gift certificate that made this all possible. (Let me just take a moment to sing the praises of gift certificates - when people give us cash we put it towards bills - as any responsible family would do, but when we get a gift certificate it is our chance to par-tay. And party we do. Arirba!!!)

On our way to the taqueria we saw that others were just as excited at the memory of France's defeat.

Ah...Can't you hear the Mariachi Music now? This taqueria in Roseburg Square is our favorite.  Back when we had disposable income we would go here at least once a month.

Ice cold H2O (My Mama says that alligators are ornery because they got all them teeth and no toothbrush.)

Chips meet salsa.

Oh how I love all the pictures of me eating (want more? check out Scott and Kim's blog)

The Piece De Resistance - the grilled chicken nachos!!! (Chancho. When you are a man, sometimes you wear stretchy pants in your room. It's for fun)

Waste not, want not. I love holidays where you celebrate by eating delicious mexican food.

Yahoo for Cinco de Mayo, and taquerias. California has some pretty good Mexican food. Happily we also live in a place with good mexican food. (New York didn't have any good mexican food, and I missed it when we were out there!) love the quote from water boy.
