dos de mayo

yes it is may 2nd, not may 5th (cinco de mayo) but it is saturday, the sun is out and we are ready for a fiesta! round one with my brother and his wife just ended with lots of laughter and even a game of “the office.” (i totally won!) round two with our good friend david and his girlfriend will be happening in a couple of hours. the husband is napping and i am blogging. ahh everything is right in this world. well, not the swine flu.

the menu includes:

sangria (not for me, of course)


my gaining popularity with each guest sweet tea

steak fajitas/burritos

chicken fajitas/burritos

assorted peppers and onions

homemade mango and black bean salsa


regular store bought salsa (i can’t wait for our garden when i can make it myself)

lime and fresh cilantro rice (like what they serve at qdoba)
