Happy Cinco de Mayo to all. Everybody deserves great Mexican and here are my recommendations for a great food holiday.
Cinco de Mayo is probably my favorite food holiday. The food screams flavor and everyday life all for only a little work. And unlike Thanksgiving, no spending the whole day cooking.
For those not in the know, Cinco de Mayo is not the Mexican Independence Day. It was a victory in battle over the French. But I’m sure our French friends will join us at least in the food side of the celebration and wish our Mexican neighbors a happy holiday.
