    Ah, it looks so good. Especially the Chicken and Veggie Tostadas. Mexican cuisine is about the best. We don’t have any plans – a little friend of ours has her birthday on May 5th.

    Happy Cinco de Mayo to you, too!

    I love Mexican food! We are making fish tacos tonight… loaded with halibut, cabbage, tomatoes, lime, avocados, cheese and spice! If it stays chilly… I might make some Mexican hot cocoa :)

    This is my first Cinco de Mayo not in College so I’m finally excited to celebrate it as a food holiday (and not a binge drinking holiday)! I like your style of starting early too.
