my Cinco de Mayo plan

Wow, what a week! It started with a heavy project workload, then there was the terrible tornado in Tuscaloosa and Birmingham where I still have tons of family (I spent hours staring at The Weather Channel and getting down on my knees. Thank God no one from my family was injured, just debris filled yards and mild roof damage), then there was the class field trip to the zoo (cold and terribly breezy) and now I’m sick… Ugh! Nevertheless, I couldn’t leave you all without a little inspiration for next week.

Although I’m not planning a full Cinco de Mayo party with guests, I am planning a fun family dinner. These are just a few of the things I’m considering:

  • Jalapeno poppers via Kraft Foods – my husband and my dad LOVE super hot foods, but I can even eat these since the cheese cools them down a bit.
  • Watermelon margaritas via Food Network – I thought these just sounded refreshing and very “summery.”
  • Sweet Pork Enchiladas with Roasted Green Chile Tomatillo from Cordon Pink – I’m really excited about these. They look so delicious plus she offers a fabulous “how to” pictorial and you know how I love a pictorial!
  • Cheese Flautas with Cilantro Pesto via Martha Stewart – I’m a sucker for pesto.
  • Churros via Cherry Patter NYC – And finally, the churro dessert. When I saw this picture it made me actually feel the cinnamon and sugar on my fingertips. YUM! Can’t wait!
