Cinco de Mayo Weekend

May 5, 2014


Hola! How was your weekend? We had a really busy and festive weekend. The boys attended birthday parties, soccer and started a garden! My mom spent all of Saturday making pozole and prepping for tostadas. I took out all of the bright table linens to compliment her delicious feast. She also made agua de tamarindo and we finished our meal with a few shots of tequila!

On Sunday, I surprised everyone with spicy chorizo and refried beans. OMG. We eat a lot when family is visiting, but we wouldn’t have it any other way.

Today, the fun continues as I am hosting my book club at our place for the first time! Hubby will prepare margaritas for the ladies and my mom promised salsa and guacamole. Que Viva Mexico and it’s fine, fine cuisine!

Here are your weekend links…

    That looks yummy and colorful! I agree, it’s not a Mexican gathering without lots of food. My hubby made agua de horchata yesterday, but that agua de tamarindo sounds very tasty now. I think I’ll make that today lol. I really enjoyed eating tamarindos growing up. Enjoy your time with your mami!
